5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant for a starter into the world of electronics and micro-controllers., 10 Aug 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: THE ARDUINO STARTER KIT (Electronics)
When I heard about micro-controllers I was very intrigued with it, so I decided I was going to purchase this starter kit to see what it's all about. Well, I'm glad I did, it arrived in a box exactly as the picture shown, inside there is everything you need to get started, but everything is separated into nice little boxes(makes me not want to throw the boxes away). The instructions are clear, precise and inform you of everything need to do & use. There are 15 projects total, the first is very simplistic to get you started, but they do increase in difficulty and complexity of the circuitry. Some projects even require some of the card cut-outs, but for me personally I was more bothered about the electronics/circuits than the look of my project. The breadboard included is just a little bigger than the Uno itself, it's all you really need for a beginner, eventually you'll progress further through the projects, getting better, and finding yourself wanting to increase your electronic supplies for more circuits. I've currently completed only 10 of the projects, I find myself already straying from the book and creating my own circuits. The programming interface for the Arduino is very easy, I've had previous programming knowledge so, it might just be me but I'm sure others could pick it up quickly with little hassle. The book will run you through the programming interface at the very start, all programs made for the Arduino are called sketch's, the application does have ALOT of example sketches, not only for the included book but for LCD's, Ethernet, etc, it is quite comprehensive. I honestly would recommend this to ANYBODY, wanting to delve into hobbyist electronics and/or micro-controllers, it's a brilliant kit for a starter, and certainly makes your weekends disappear pretty fast. Oh aswell, I did have a look at other kits before purchasing this one, and I'd honestly recommend this over all the others, by far! I hope you purchase, enjoy, and become a hobbyist like me. :)
