5.0 out of 5 stars Great book - mostly still relevant, 5 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Making Things Talk: Using Sensors, Networks, and Arduino to See, Hear, and Feel Your World: Physical Methods for Connecting Physical Objects (Paperback)
Very thorough, covers everything from Web, PHP, C/C++ through to connections with embedded kit, such as Arduino.

Since this 2nd edition (2011), things have advanced at an even higher rate than since the 1st edition - the online community is now incredible.

However, there is also a lot of information, some confusing and conflicting, so this book is a good place to start and acts as a good reference tool also.

Just be aware that some of the suppliers and kit may no longer be available (though improved alternatives will probably be available instead!).

An easy read, clear design. Might be useful in part for basics within GCSE Computing (PHP, HTML, Apache, C/C++).

Let's hope there's a 3rd edition in the future...

I have only managed to read a page but the plan is to go through everything and hopefully get my fingers dirty with internet of things, assuming I do not run out of cash (most likely outcome)
