The Arduino Course for Absolute Beginners, 1st Edition

The 1st edition of our flagship program that teaches how to program Arduino from the ground up; this course contains different visuals, examples, lessons, and challenges than our 2nd Edition release. There’s some overlap between the two editions, yet students still love having access to this course. Who are we to say no?

Course Description

This course is the First Edition of the Arduino Course for Absolute Beginners.

Why offer the first version when we have a new and improved 2nd Edition?

Well, people really like it.

Several of the beginning videos of this course are available on YouTube and have enjoyed over 2 million views, and still get great reviews to this day.

It is not quite as polished as the newer release (by a long shot), but some of the lesson analogies have proven to be effective in helping students.

The 2nd edition of the course focused on high quality audio and visual production, and was designed based on feedback from many 1st Edition customers.

While there is significant overlap in the curriculum of the 1st and 2nd editions, both do have material that is unique to each.

If you are looking for an extremely casual presentation, with good audio, and ok visuals, than you will probably find this 1st Edition course a good perspective after watching the 2nd Edition.

1st Edition Pro’s: Casual presentation, Good audio, Ok Video, In-depth coverage of many challenges.  The presenter is the coolest person I know.

1st Edition Con’s: Not as thorough as the second edition course, Some challenges are extremely difficult.  Presenter is a total dork.

Length of Instruction: 13 hours and 46 minutes of HD video instruction.

Important Notes: The Arduino Crash Course 1st Edition (our freely available course on YouTube) is the beginning of this instruction.
