Course Description

This course is designed for complete beginners, beginners at the coding level, and beginners at the electronics level. It is also for people who want to build and program cool creations and beginner Arduino developers.

This course, by best-selling Arduino author, Mike McRoberts, will take you from complete beginner to the confident and competent coder and electronics circuit builder. Even if you have never coded before or built a circuit, you will be guided through each carefully crafted lesson until you have the skills and knowledge to go it alone and bring your very own creations to life. Brand new for 2021 with new and updated content.

This course comprises multiple projects, specifically designed to take you from a complete beginner to a capable and confident Arduino coder. You will start off with a tour of the Arduino board and what it is capable of, then you will learn the essential fundamental skills required to understand the C programming language that the Arduino uses. Next, an introduction to electronic fundamentals, then you will dive right into the step-by-step learning projects that have been carefully designed to start you off gently and introduce more coding and electronics concepts as you work your way through the curriculum.

By the end of this course, you will have all the necessary skills to enable you to design from scratch and code your very own projects.


What will you learn in this course:

  • Learn how to write code for the Arduino
  • Learn how to easily understand the Arduino language
  • Learn how to use and write code to read data from sensors
