Course Description

In Advanced Arduino Boards and Tools, I take you on a tour of some of the best technology that the Arduino ecosystem has to offer. This course will contain more than 8 hours of video, presented in over 50 lectures.
The Arduino Uno is awesome: rugged, easy to use, low cost, configurable, open source. But sooner or later, you will feel that it is not enough for your projects. Not enough inputs and outputs. Not enough speed. Not enough memory. Not enough communications options. The list goes on.
The Arduino ecosystem has you covered. There are more powerful alternatives to the Arduino Uno. You can leverage your existing equipment and components, and especially the time and effort investment that you have made to the Arduino, and adopt a more powerful and specialised Arduinos for your next project.
In this course, I present some of the best currently available advanced Arduino boards. I try to help you understand what is special about each one, how you can use them in your projects, and what to look out for when you migrate from the Arduino Uno.
Of course, advanced Arduino projects depend on software, as well as on hardware. Advanced projects need advanced tools! In this course, I also have this covered. Learn about advanced debugging and editing tools, cloud-based automation, and Arduino-PC collaboration.
In this course, I cover these advanced Arduino boards:
  • Arduino Mega 2560
  • Arduino Due
  • Arduino 101
  • Arduino Zero
  • Arduino Galileo Gen 2
For each board, I discuss the features that distinguish them apart from other Arduino (their "special powers"). I demonstrate these features through experimentation.
I also cover these tools:
  • Atmega Studio, an advanced editor and debugger
  • Atmega Atmel-ICE, a debugger and programmer device
  • Temboo, a cloud automation platform for the Internet of Things
  • Processing, a language and framework for creating desktop applications that inter-operate with the Arduino
All demo sketches are available for download from Github, so you will not need to do much typing.
To make the most of this course, you should already have some working experience with a basic Arduino board, like the Uno. If you are just starting now, I suggest that you consider enrolling to Arduino Step by Step, and working through the project in Beginning Arduino.
You do not need to own one of these boards to take advantage of the materials in this course. You can use this course as a reference guide to understanding each board's benefits and disadvantages before you choose one for your next project.
Start learning about Advanced Arduino Boards and Tools now!Who this course is for:
  • This course will benefit the most students who already have at least a basic working experience with the Arduino Uno
  • Students who are looking to upgrade from the Arduino Uno, but don't know which board option is best for their next project
  • Students who are curious about Internet of Things platforms, like Temboo
  • Students who are curious about the tools used in more complicated Arduino projects, like editors and debuggers
  • If you have never worked with the Arduino before, it would be best if you took one of my beginner Arduino courses first

Nice course. I am learning a lot of things

not yet! let me finish the course!!!

The technical details and board comparisons are very helpful and informative. I enjoyed learning about the strengths and limitations of the various boards. The overviews of the software packages was informative and has help me to consider integrating them into some future projects. Highly recommended course for those interested in the Arduino family of products.

Very broad topics, nice overview of each advanced board. Peter is very responsive to questions and provides encouragement to his students throughout the course.

Awesome course if you want to understand the bigger Atmel / Arduino ecosystem, the Atmel Studio and advanced (command line) IDE / debugger sections (going beyond the Arduino IDE) are worth the cost of entry alone. Added to which the insights into the Arduino Zero are great - lots of capabilities on this board.

I have received many useful information about current Arduino products. I have also appreciated a slow and understandable pronounciation of Peter. What I value the most is an introduction to the Processing software. Since, this course is my first experience with Udemy, I am happy and glad that I joined interesting lectures by Peter. The lenght of the course was very appropriate - I managed to finish it within 1 week. The last but not least, I am glad that Peter is a positive minded person with a solid knowledge of a current technology but in a mean while he keeps his lectures well structured without too many (often disturbing) emotions. Thank you!

Peter has done it again. A wonderful course on all of the different Arduino style boards and how you can utilize them in a project. Well worth your time if you want an overview of what is available and how to use some of the advanced tools,

Another brilliant course by the best teacher on udemy, Peter Dalmaris. Keep the courses rolling!

This course was quite informative as far as various variants of the Arduino family went, but it would have been nice to examine some of the other platforms on the market as well. I also did not notice more than one "tool", the ArduoIce debugger/emulator used to reload the bootloader.

Great course! Great instructor!

Eit is great so far Peter courses are all very good some of the best thank you Peter
