DIY Hacking has released its first free eBook titled – “How To Be a Maker”. It is intended to be a beginner’s guide to getting started with working on Arduino and Raspberry Pi 2. It will help you to build really cool arduino projects and raspberry pi projects. And will transform you into a Maker! It can also be used as a guide to build the best science fair projects in the world :) You can download this free copy from here.

Using this, a person will get a basic understanding of arduino and raspberry pi 2. They will be able to build their very own robotics projects for the first time. It consists of very simple and detailed information about these platforms. And can be used as your first stepping stone into building electronics projects. It also consists of around 4-5 simple beginners projects that you can try out.

The Contents – How to be a Maker!:

Arduino

Arduino is an open source microcontroller board.It is an embedded electronics platform. And is designed for quickly prototyping an electronics project. It uses a programming language comprising of simple and easy C/C++ functions. It is a perfect tool that can be used for working on your school science fair projects. Or your college robotics projects. And to quickly prototype a cool product idea.
This eBook will make you comfortable in using the platform. Starting from its installation, to building your first arduino projects.


Build Raspberry Pi projects:

Raspberry Pi

The raspberry pi is an extremely sleek and tiny single board computer. It is about the size of a normal credit card. And runs on a linux based operating system called the Raspbian. This board can be thought of as a miniaturized version of the motherboard in your CPU. It might not offer the same powerful processing capabilities as a normal PC, but it gets the job done. The raspberry pi 2 can be manipulated to turn ON/OFF relays, LEDs, etc using its GPIO pins. It is controlled using python programming (one of the easiest programming languages).
This free eBook will be the perfect beginners guide, if you have just recently bought a raspberry pi 2. It will guide you starting from installing the Raspbian OS till building your first Raspberry pi projects. It even features a cool DIY tutorial on building a robotics project using it.

And lots of free DIY projects:

It also features a prolific number of DIY projects based on Arduino and Raspberry Pi. These would be perfect for building your science fair projects. Or if you are into robotics or mechatronics, it will help you build your first robotics project using raspberry pi 2 or arduino. Most of the projects have been developed by DIY Hacking. So if you ever need support, you can directly post your comments through our online tutorials.

How to be a Maker! tries to promote awareness about easy open source tools for rapid prototyping (Arduino and Raspberry Pi). Since many of the students in our country are still not exposed to such easy tools. It also tries to promulgate a more pragmatic approach to technical education, rather than just confining to the books. And promotes the Maker culture within the country. This free guide will also help you to build the best science fair projects in the world. Start building cool arduino projects and raspberry pi projects today!

      You can use a HDMI tv, or a CRT TV with audio/video out, however for that you would need a converter.

      Hi Jithin, we will be coming up with a tutorial for it soon. Meanwhile try searching Google “Make quadrotor arduino”, if you dont want to do the coding, you can just buy the flight controller and kit and get started.
