From automated vertical hydroponic gardens to on-demand tea brewers to robots, Arduino has become one of the world's best-loved electronics platforms for makers and creators.
This course is an incomprehensible 80% off. It has over 99 simple, clear lectures, with over 17 hours of listenable content so you can access the principles of programming micro-controllers, explore basic principles in electronics design, and study and use many types of sensors and components.
Look--it doesn't even matter if all you want a small trebuchet-style robot to throw your alarm clock across the room at 6am. Arduino can help you program the machine that will make it happen. Leave it to the Italian Futurist movement to leave a legacy that builds an epic, ever-expandable, truly adaptive microcontroller board.
Want to learn how to use one? The most basic applications have been simple robots, thermostats and motion detectors. But we have a funny feeling you have grander plans. You can even connect your Arduino to the web to check out analytics and controlling.
Get it here for $19 (that's Dr. Peter Dalmaris, an Arduino maestro). The original instructor charge (Dalmaris, an expert in the field, has waived his fee for these courses) teaches while you enjoy digital redemption of the course once you're paid...less than twenty bucks for an over-one-hundred-dollar value.
Even Dalmaris will applaud you for your ingenuity.
