The BeagleBone is a powerful and versatile development board. Using it is easy and intuitive. This book’s intention is to walk you through the world of digital electronics and programming using the BeagleBone.
We believe that the best way to discover new concepts is through practice. In this book, you get to know all the important concepts by building circuits and programming them with the BeagleBone. Blinking an LED is a classic place to start, and you’ll be doing it in no time. From there, you find out how to control motors and read from sensors. Ultimately, you gather all the basic concepts in the book and take a dive into web-based projects and home automation.
BeagleBone For Dummies tries to strike a balance between the technical and important details while striving to be a lightweight read. If you don’t have fun while trying out the projects provided throughout this book, we’ve failed.
