Arduino Step by Step

UPDATED: January 2020

I have updated this course with a full new section in which you will learn how to use arrays in your Arduino sketches. This is a very useful skill to have, as you can program repetitive tasks with just a few lines of code. Enjoy.

This is the original, legendary Arduino course on Udemy, by Tech Explorations, fanatically supported by Dr Peter Dalmaris. 

It is trusted by thousands of students, and contains over 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 Arduino Step by Step Getting Started, I make sure that in the more than 16 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 Getting Started.

I look forward to learning with you.

Very pleased with this course easy to follow and good learning i am a complete beginner With Arduino and really find it easy to learn and experiment with Arduino IDE and some electronic components In one of the board configure we did, he ask us to combine 2 configurations(2 sketches) on our on, but did not come back and tell us the right way to do it.

Extremely thorough walkthrough of the Arduino and hopefully it continues being easy to follow and comprehensive.

All of the material covered so far has been explained well by the instructor and easy to follow along with.

Dr. Dalmaris' presentations are thorough and easy to follow.

Very clear, concise, and easy to follow gateway into the amazing world of Arduino.

step by step

I will be continuing on to the next course, Arduino Step by Step Getting Serious and am looking forward to it!

The instructors gave clear, simple and really done in step by step.

So i planned to learn about this Arduino step by step process.

Step by step A very nice course of beginners like me to get a hand on arduino and various types of sensors.

I learned Basic Electronics >40 years ago) - Arduino Step by Step: Gettings started I enjoyed both courses and started to learn the basics.

I'm not to keen on programming in Arduino IDE in C++, I will repeat the Arduino Step by Step course with code generated in XOD and Visuino, thereafter I will decide which path to follow.

The step by step examples of building each project and sketch are simple to follow and very informative.

I was a absolute beginner going into the Arduino Step by Step: Getting Started course.

So Far, has provided exceptional step by step educational training for a topic that can easily lose someone in the technical aspects, which so far, has not done.

Very clear and detailed "step by step" explanation.

This beginers step by step is thorough, without make older students feel dumb, for not knowing this material.

My ideas were just ideas, until I discovered your step by step methodology.

The teacher describes everything very slowly clear step by step, easy to understand For beginners very nice made - since I am more experienced 90% repetition - but a nice start for getting deeper into Arduino platform For beginners this course is very easy to understand.

Very detailed step by step.

Thank you, Dr. Dalmaris its good Very good course !!!

Thanks much Dr. Dalmaris It’s very understandable !!

Dr. Dalmaris is easy to listen to, very precise with his explanations, and clearly has a lot of experience with the Arduino.

Dr. Dalmaris is a excellent teacher!

Dr. Dalmaris has created a curriculum that walks you through the foundational knowledge of electronics.

Dr. Dalmaris is a wonderful teacher.

Dr. Dalmaris knows what he is talking about and he is able to convey lots of information in a very low key manner.

based on my progress so far i can say dr. dalmaris has done an excellent job in preparing the course materials.

Dr. Dalmaris is obviously brilliant, yet unassuming.

need to know

Peter is fantastic at explaining everything you need to know about working with the Arduino.

I also found that he went into too much depth about stuff we won't need to know straight away, it felt like the course was mixed up, thus creating confusion.

Course covers all the things you need to know but are afraid to ask because you do not want to look stupid.

So far, it cover what a person need to know.

looking forward

Looking forward to several other courses taught by this instructor that I've purchased.

What I'm really looking forward is the applications and programming section, right now is a little bit early to rate it.

I find it engaging and feel myself looking forward to the next lecture.

I'm looking forward to trying out some more of the projects.

Looking forward to the rest of the course.

I'm looking forward to learning more and writing my first sketch!

Yes I will be able to impart the knowledge that I gained to students in a more methodical way Very informative intro so far looking forward to some coding A few lectures in and I find it thorough, explains it to me like I'm five, which is exactly what I need.

other courses

Did some other courses on udemy, too.

I can't wait to see what other courses I can take after finishing this one.

I have taken other courses on Udemy and looked for something that could really teach me about this whole new world.

I have taken other courses and have a two year degree in electronics so this is redundant for me but a good review.

Some other courses would have us blinking some LEDs by now.

Better than other courses for arduinos.

Love this course most among all other courses I enrolled, 10/10 great course The course is good Nicely explained and very understandable.

more advanced

Excellent, from beginner to advanced; simple refresher and quick review; for more advanced may sometimes be a bit slow BUT introduces and reviews efficiently without insulting the intelligence of more advanced users.

Moving confidently onto more advanced Arduino courses now.

Already bought the more advanced course and I can't wait to start it.

I am more advanced than the target audience for this course.

thanks For a non Arduino programmer like me, this has been very helpful to get me into a more advanced course.
