Arduino For Dummies
Author: John Nussey
Published at: 28/05/2013
ISBN: 1118446372

What is the best way for new Arduino users to get started?

I'd say the best way to get started with Arduino is to find a workshop near you and see where it takes you. Workshops really accelerate your learning and put you in an environment with like-minded people. 

What is your all-time favorite Arduino project that you've either worked on or heard about from someone else?

My own favorite project is the Pen Nib Dress that I made with Steven Tai. It's my favorite purely because it's so beautiful to look at. It's maybe a little impractical (weighing about 5 kg. or just over 11 lbs.) for the poor model who had to wear it but that's the way it is with prototypes!

Why do you think Arduino has become such a popular device, especially for tech hobbyists?

Arduino is cheap and easy to use, but I don't think that either of these is the main reason that it's so popular. The community around it is what's so remarkable and this is something that you see on the Arduino forums. 

How do you think Arduino has influenced interactive design projects?

Arduino has made it possible to quickly and easily get a lot of concepts into the real world. Students can build prototypes that actually work for their final shows and design studios can build the interactive elements of a project themselves without needing an entire technical company to partner with.

Any advice for someone who may be interested in Arduino, but not sure what it's all about?

Get Googling! It's all out there on the net: talks, workshops, resources, kits, and more. Once you've seen a few other projects, you'll have an idea of what's possible and what's interesting to you, then you can think about your own projects and how Arduino can help you solve a problem or maybe just create something interesting.

What should people expect when they open a copy of Arduino For Dummies?

Arduino For Dummies is written for not-technical people that are interested in learning more about technology. The first part of the book gets you familiar with Arduino and what it involves, then there are some simple examples to teach you the fundamentals that you'll need to know before you go further.
