DOWNLOADABLE TEXTS FOR LEARNING TO USE ARDUINOS:

  • Getting Started with Arduino: Download it Here
    • Great introduction to what an Arduino is and what it can be used for. Not an indepth tutorial though. Just good for getting your feet wet.

  • Introduction to the Arduino: Download it Here
    • A more detailed, straight-forward tutorial on how to use the Arduino.

  • Beginning Arduino Programming: Download it Here
    • Good book for beginners to learn how to use an Arduino

  • Arduino Programming Notebook:
    • This manual is a bit like a dictionary for the Arduino programming language. It goes through the significant names of functions, data types, and other programming-related structures for the Arduino and explains how they work. Great resource to refer to when you're reading other people's code or trying to figure out how to use the Arduino to do something new.
