About this book

Beginning C for Arduino, Second Edition is written for those who have no prior experience with microcontrollers or programming but would like to experiment and learn both. Updated with new projects and new boards, this book introduces you to the C programming language, reinforcing each programming structure with a simple demonstration of how you can use C to control the Arduino family of microcontrollers. Author Jack Purdum uses an engaging style to teach good programming techniques using examples that have been honed during his 25 years of university teaching.

Beginning C for Arduino, Second Edition will teach you:

  • The C programming language
  • How to use C to control a microcontroller and related hardware
  • How to extend C by creating your own libraries, including an introduction to object-oriented programming

During the course of the book, you will learn the basics of programming, such as working with data types, making decisions, and writing control loops. You'll then progress onto some of the trickier aspects of C programming, such as using pointers effectively, working with the C preprocessor, and tackling file I/O. Each chapter ends with a series of exercises and review questions to test your knowledge and reinforce what you have learned.

Reviews

“The book is highly readable and starts from basics, like how to install the Arduino integrated development environment (IDE). The appendix of the book has a lot of good information on how and where to order the parts and boards. … I would strongly advise reading the book in a hands-on fashion and not just reading it alone. … High school and beginning college students will have a blast reading it and implementing the programs. I highly recommend it.” (Naga Narayanaswamy, Computing Reviews, April, 2016)
