The Arduino is an open-source computer hardware/software platform for building digital devices and interactive objects that can sense and control the physical world around them. In this class you will learn how the Arduino platform works in terms of the physical board and libraries and the IDE (integrated development environment). You will also learn about shields, which are smaller boards that plug into the main Arduino board to perform other functions such as sensing light, heat, GPS tracking, or providing a user interface display. The course will also cover programming the Arduino using C code and accessing the pins on the board via the software to control external devices. Please note that this course does not include discussion forums.

TOP REVIEWS FROM THE ARDUINO PLATFORM AND C PROGRAMMING
Nice course. The platform and programming is explained in a simple way. If you are already a C or C++ programmer, only the topics dealing with the Arduino platform will be important.
The course is great for beginners. It goes through the basics of what Arduino is, and the programming in C - including variables, loops and all of the foundational stuff.
I like the instructor a lot and his teaching is amazing. Also I had the opportunity to work with Arduino board and get hands on it. But overall course level was too easy for me in terms of coding.
Course was great and interesting to learn. Explanation of concepts was nice and easy to grasp. After Completion of Course worth checking out the next Course in series of specialization.
