August 28, 2013 // By Graham Prophet
Arduino expert, author and element14 Community guru Jeremy Blum has released a new book, “Exploring Arduino: Tools and Techniques for Engineering Wizardry”; Win a signed copy from element14 in a prize draw.

The work uses the Arduino microcontroller platform as a tool to teach about computer science, electrical engineering and human-computer interaction, as well as best practice recommendations in programming and design for future projects.

The element14 Community is hosting an online draw for a signed copy of the new book, closing 3pm GMT Friday, August 30th.

The content of the book introduces readers to computer science, electrical engineering and human-computer interaction; it contains

- Projects that utilise different capabilities of the Arduino, while interfacing with external hardware

- Chapters that build upon each other, tying in concepts from previous chapters to illustrate new ones

- Arduino aspects that are accompanied by video tutorials and other multimedia content

- Electrical engineering and programming concepts, interfacing with the world through analogue and digital sensors, communicating with a computer and other devices, and internet connectivity

- How to combine smaller topics into more complex projects

- Downloadable materials and source code for everything covered in the book

element14 offers design engineers the Knode on element14, a first stop for any engineer undertaking a design project with a development kit.

The book is available for purchase at the usual online and bookstore retailers worldwide in both print and all e-book formats.

Published by Wiley at a publisher's price of €28/23.99.
