C Programming for Arduino

By: Julien Bayle

Overview of this book

Physical computing allows us to build interactive physical systems by using software & hardware in order to sense and respond to the real world. C Programming for Arduino will show you how to harness powerful capabilities like sensing, feedbacks, programming and even wiring and developing your own autonomous systems. C Programming for Arduino contains everything you need to directly start wiring and coding your own electronic project. You'll learn C and how to code several types of firmware for your Arduino, and then move on to design small typical systems to understand how handling buttons, leds, LCD, network modules and much more. After running through C/C++ for the Arduino, you'll learn how to control your software by using real buttons and distance sensors and even discover how you can use your Arduino with the Processing framework so that they work in unison. Advanced coverage includes using Wi-Fi networks and batteries to make your Arduino-based hardware more mobile and flexible without wires. If you want to learn how to build your own electronic devices with powerful open-source technology, then this book is for you.

C and C++?

Dennis Ritchie at Bell Labs developed the C programming language from 1969 to 1973. It is often defined as a general-purpose programming language and is indeed one of the most used languages of all times. It had been used initially to design the Unix operating system ( that had numerous requirements, especially high performance.

It has influenced a lot of very well known and used languages such as C++, Objective-C, Java, JavaScript, Perl, PHP, and many others.

C is to both imperative and structured. It is very appropriate for both 8-bit and 64-bit processors, for systems having not only several bytes of memory but also terabytes too, and also for huge projects involving huge teams, to the smallest of projects with a single developer.

Yes, we are going to learn a language that will open your mind to global and universal programming concepts!

C is used everywhere

Indeed, the C language provides a lot of advantages...
