About the book

Arduino in easy steps is for anyone wanting to get started with Arduino - the popular circuit board that allows users to build a variety of circuits. For artists, designers, hobbyists and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.

Arduino is the first widespread Open Source Hardware platform. It was launched in 2005 to simplify the process of electronic prototyping and it enables everyday people with little or no technical background to build interactive products. The Arduino ecosystem is a combination of three different elements:

  1. A small electronic board manufactured in Italy that makes it easy and affordable to learn to program a microcontroller, a type of tiny computer found inside millions of everyday objects.
  2. A free software application used to program the board.
  3. An online community, connecting thousands of people with others to contribute and ask for help with projects.

Arduino in easy steps begins with an explanation of what Arduino is, why it came into being and what can be done with it. We see what is required both in terms of hardware and software, plus the writing of code that makes it actually work.

The Arduino environment has to be installed and set up on the user’s computer and Arduino in easy steps provides full instructions for doing this with all the operating systems – Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. The book explains what tools are required to build Arduino projects and also runs through certain techniques, such as soldering, that will be needed.

Arduino in easy steps then provides a primer in basic electricity and electronics, which will help the reader to understand how electronic circuits work and how to build them. This is followed by another primer, this time on how to write the code that will enable users to program their projects, plus how to debug that code.

To illustrate how to use Arduino, there is a chapter detailing a number of typical projects. For each of these projects, the required components, the schematic diagram, and the code are provided. The book also takes a look at how to extend the basic Arduino board with the use of shields. These enable the user to construct larger and more complex projects.

Finally, Arduino in easy steps details where the reader can get further information and help on Arduino, advice on how and where to buy Arduino and other required electronic parts, and where to find ready-made code that can be freely downloaded.

About the book

C Programming in easy steps has an easy-to-follow style that will appeal to anyone who wants to begin programming in C, from programmers moving from another programming language,  to the student who is studying C programming at school or college, or to those seeking a career in computing who need a fundamental understanding of procedural programming.

C Programming in easy steps begins by explaining how to download and install a free C compiler so that you can quickly begin to create your own executable programs by copying the book's examples. You need have no previous knowledge of any programming language so it's ideal for the newcomer to computer programming. Each chapter builds your knowledge of C.

C Programming in easy steps contains separate chapters on the major features of the C language. There are complete example programs that demonstrate each aspect of C together with screenshots that illustrate the output when that program has been executed. The sample code provided all has colored syntax-highlighting for clearer understanding.

By the end of this book you will have gained a sound understanding of the C language and be able to write your own C programs and compile them into executable files that can be run on any compatible computer.

Fully updated and revised since the third edition, which was published in April 2009.

About the book

C++ Programming in easy steps, 5th Edition shows you how to program in the powerful C++ language. Now, in its fifth edition, this guide gives complete examples that illustrate each aspect with colourized source code.

C++ Programming in easy steps, 5th Edition begins by explaining how to install a free C++ compiler so you can quickly begin to create your own executable programs by copying the book’s examples. It demonstrates all the C++ language basics before moving on to provide examples of Object Oriented Programming (OOP).

C++ is not platform-dependent, so programs can be created on any operating system. Most illustrations in this book depict output on the Windows operating system purely because it is the most widely used desktop platform. The examples can also be created on other platforms such as Linux or macOS.

The book concludes by demonstrating how you can use your acquired knowledge to create programs graphically using a modern C++ Integrated Development Environment (IDE), such as Microsoft’s Visual Studio Community Edition.

C++ Programming in easy steps, 5th Edition has an easy-to-follow style that will appeal to:

  • anyone who wants to begin programming in C++
  • programmers moving from another programming language
  • students who are studying C++ Programming at school or college
  • those seeking a career in computing who need a fundamental understanding of object oriented programming

This book makes no assumption that you have previous knowledge of any programming language so it is suitable for the beginner to programming in C++, whether you know C or not.
