This book contains 36 Arduino projects. Some are easy to make, whereas others require some expertise with a soldering iron. You do not need a strong grounding in electronics engineering to build these projects. Although you will find some theoretical explanations, this is primarily a book that shows you in detail how to make the Arduino projects that it contains.
Some experience with a soldering iron will be helpful. The only tools you will need are screwdrivers, pliers, snips, and a soldering set.
Arduino has become the most popular open-source hardware for building your own microcontroller projects. There are many reasons for this:
• Low cost ($25 or less)
• Cross-platform (you can use it with PC, ...
