The 2017 Arduino Starter Kit and Course Bundle – 84% off
Arduino’s microcontrollers offer an almost infinite number of projects — robotics, games, household gizmos, art projects, you name it. But working with Arduino isn’t like playing with Lego bricks. This requires having and understanding key tools and techniques.
This bundle covers both, including a multi-use ARDX Arduino starter kit and eight e-books clocking in at 15 hours of instruction. You’ll learn the basics of robotics, integration with iOS and Android, coding and developing, wearables and lots more. If you’re looking to get started with Arduino, this is a great resource.
