What will I learn?

  • How to program your Arduino...from variables to arrays, for loops and if statements
  • How to make your Arduino respond to sensors
  • How to communicate to your computer with the Arduino
  • This book covers the most useful, enlightening and simplest examples to get you started on the road to hacking just about anything.
  • How to build teleporters, levitating fortresses and nuclear reactors (maybe a stretch…)


  • No programming and electronics experience required.

"Somehow, you seem to have captured the essence of what the average person out there wants to know in order to get started with electronics and Arduino, and frankly, I think it has a lot to do with the fact that you’re not much different than the rest of us."
-Dr. David Weissman, MI, USA

Course Description

The Arduino Course for Absolute Beginners eBook is a tutorial style collection of lessons designed to be simple and easy to follow which uses only the most relevant circuits and programs and assumes nothing about your prior electronics or programming experience.

This book comes with accompanying code and several videos that walk through concepts discussed in the book which are available for online viewing inside the Programming Electronics Academy training portal website.

What to Expect:

  • Step-by-step instructions to walk you through building circuits and programming your Arduino
  • Each line of code in the programs are discussed to maximize your understanding of the fundamentals
  • Repetition of the basic programming building blocks are used to increase your retention of the material


Only a handful of additional parts are necessary to complete the course lessons, many of which are reused from lesson to lesson, reducing your investment in learning how to use Arduino

The simple building blocks you learn will be put together to build more complex examples

Each lesson ends with suggestions of experiments to try on your own.  These are generally simple changes that make you think about the operation of the Arduino and the underlying programming language.  It is doing these where you will learn the most.
