Course Description

This is the original, best-selling Arduino course on Udemy, by Tech Explorations, fanatically supported by Dr Peter Dalmaris. It is trusted by thousands of students, and contains 16 hours of content, quizzes, Github code repository, thousands of active student discussions, and countless downloadable and linked resources.
Please don't be confused by other courses with a similar name.
This course is for the new Arduino Maker.
Do you have a passion for learning?
Are you excited about becoming a Maker with the Arduino?
If you answered "yes!" to both, then you are ready to get started!
In making this course, I emphasized the importance of getting the basics right and learning to mastery. As an educator for over 15 years, I know first-hand that hitting a roadblock because you lack the fundamental knowledge to progress can be demotivating.
In ASbS 2017: Getting Started, I make sure that in the more than 15 hours of video content, mini projects and quizzes, we cover all the basics so that you can enjoy learning about the Arduino.
By the end of the course, you will have a good understanding of the capabilities of the Arduino Uno, the best Arduino for people getting started, and you will be familiar with the capabilities of several of its cousins.
You will be comfortable with the basic prototyping tools and their usage, the basics of the Arduino programming environment, language and programming.
You will be able to use a variety of components. From simple buttons and LEDs, to visible color and ultraviolet light, and other environment sensors.
Apart from knowing how to use the components that I demonstrate in this course, you will also learn how to read datasheets, how to use libraries on your own, and how to learn the skills you need to create the gadgets you want, on your own. With knowledge comes freedom, and I will help you get there.
I invite you to review the free lectures in the first section of the course to find out more details about it.
If you are excited about becoming a Maker with the Arduino, join many other Makers and me in Arduino Step by Step 2017: Getting Started!
I look forward to learning with you!Who this course is for:
  • Students over 10 years of age, or younger with with adult supervision. Young students should be supervised at all times when using a soldering iron.
  • Students with a little or no prior experience with electronics or programming.

If you want to jump start with Arduino projects, this will be the best course.

Great course for beginers that want to explore the capabilities of Arduino. The instructor is really clear and examples are usefull to underestand how different sensors and components works.Highly recomended

I went through the entire course and made all the projects. I had some questions/issues along the way, but found the answers in the question and answer area. Everything was well explained and I went from being completely new to the Arduino Uno to having a firm base of knowledge. I will be continuing on to the next course, Arduino Step by Step Getting Serious and am looking forward to it!

Great instructor. His classes are technical, but very well developed. If you are interested in being taught detailed knowledge about a specific topic, this is a very good program about Arduino.

This is a perfect course for the beginners who wants to learn about the fundamentals of Arduino and various components that can be used with it.

Peter is probably one of the best tutors on the Udemy. The courses are well structured and the delivery of the content is clear and interesting.

Amazing course! Gives you a strong background in using the arduino uno. Friendly to other arduino boards as well! (I was using the mega 2560)

Absolutely brilliant course! Very interesting and engaging. This is the BEST course I have ever taken on any platform. Highly recommended.I loved it soo much I've purchased another two of Peters' courses.

All lectures explained very well. Good technical knowledge about Arduino. Did some other courses on udemy, too. This instructor doe snot only have good technical knowledge but is also very skilled in bringing it to the people.

Excellent Arduino course, Great knowledge of the components and extensive explanation of each case, excellent teaching, very happy with everything learned

Very satisfied with the course so far. The instructors gave clear, simple and really done in step by step. Excellent course for beginners.

Thank you Dr. Peter for providing an excellent beginner course for Arduino! Im a 47-year old dad who doesnt have any background in the subject and my only motive was to help my 15-year old daughter in her robotics subject as well as in her research project involving Arduino. As a Udemy fan, I recommended my daughter not to join a live seminar on Arduino but instead purchased the course for her (using her account) and for me using my Udemy account so I can evaluate how effective the course is. Because of your well-structured, well-organised manner of presenting, Im able to grasp the concepts and principles and understand the hardware and software aspects of the course (I do know programming though C programming is something that I havent used since graduating college). Im so happy to complete the course and I think I know have the basic knowledge to help my daughter in her project. Again, thank you for creating this great course! =)
