Tutorial and Learning links for Rpi and Arduino.

I thought it would be a great idea to have a thread were we can post links to sites we find that offer tutorials and lessons on how to use and program the micro controllers we are using in our creations. Maybe we can sticky this list once it gets some body to it. Here is what I got so far.

Hardware:
www.arduino.cc Arduino homepage
http://www.raspberrypi.org/ Raspberry Pi Homepage
http://tiny-circuits.com/ Tiny Circuits


Software / Education:
https://online.dr-chuck.com Learning to program Python Creative Commons lisence (go to the PlayGround)
http://learnpythonthehardway.org/book/ Learn Python the Hard Way
http://www.sparkfun.com/ Spark Fun
http://www.jeremyblum.com Jeremy Blum's blog and tutorials very informative.


Parts and Components:
www.adafruit.com Adafruit
http://www.dfrobot.com DF Robot
http://www.seeedstudio.com Seeedstudio
http://www.mouser.com/ Mouser
http://www.servocity.com/ Servo City

Hi Massey,

The Dr. Chuck's course is closed, so here is another free one for Python:

Learn Python the Hard Way

Pete

Also, here are some very interesting small circuits

adding to the componants stuff:

http://www.sparkfun.com/ tutorials, components and kits with a big focus on Arduino.

http://www.mouser.com/ simply components.. you need to order a gross of LEDS? specialty IC chips? there ya go. I mostly go there for bare specialty IC's myself. like say a LED VU meter control chip. resisters, SMC stuff... etc, al the bit bobs you may need.
I'm sure we all know about http://www.servocity.com/ for all your gimbling needs.

The main course is closed but the Playground is always open and it is the same material just not at a deadline pace like the other course is. Go check it out again! Trust me it is a very informative class. I am working on chapter 7 right now and the assignment is due on Friday!!

YouTube is a great place for Tutorials.
Maybe not for learning coding, but there is a set for the Arduino.

Tutorial 01 for Arduino: Getting Acquainted with Arduino (14 min 32 sec)

Thanks for the direct link Umi, I posted the blog for the guy that does those video tutorials in the links above. I have watched a few of them and he is pretty good at the arduino and programing.

I have borrowed a book from the Public Library that may be useful;
Learn electronics with Arduino
by Wilcher, Don.
What you'll learn
Electronics fundamentals using the discovery method
How to make your own embedded diagnostics for your gadgets
How to drive servos and DC motors with Arduino
How to work with analog signals and sound
How to put photocells to work
How to create LED displays
I have just started to read it and don’t yet have an Arduino to play with and my Microchip PICs are still packed somewhere from the move (I may find them by next winter)
Regards,
Gerald.

Nice tutorial in English on how to link 2 Arduinos:
2 Arduino Communication How-To (9 min 7 sec)


Here is a link showing the absolute basics of having 2 Arduinos communicating with each other:

Using Arduino Wiring (aka sketch) language on Raspberry Pi

If you’ve played much with the Arduino, chances are you’re familiar with "Wiring". In other words, if you’ve created an Arduino sketch, you’ve already used the Wiring language to control your Arduino. WiringPi is a version of Wiring that works on the RaspberryPi microcontroller and also provides libraries for C, C++, Python, Perl, PHP and Ruby! So if you need to use the R Pi and don't want to learn another language, you can install WiringPi instead. Or you can take advatage of Wiring's features thru one of the other languages listed. WringPi can be downloaded from the GitHub repository. This page details the installation and configuration for WiringPi.

I want to add some links for the PICAXE microcontroller. Orraman has done a lot of legwork on this family of chips, and they are quite impressive, very easy to program too.

There's more detail in Orraman's thread.
