On the technical side, the explanations are more suited for at least a Junior Level college course where students have had a couple of years of microcontroller interfacing and are knowledgeable about the ARM processor and the peripherals. The author only provides a vague overview with programming stubs stating that the details are left for exercises at the end of the chapter.
He provides only a cursory introduction on BoneScript. He does not present how the user loads, launches, or interacts with the interpreter.
He lists two different robot platforms for his exercises, one from Graymark International and a DFROBOT ROB00003 from Jameco.Read more ›
A serious error on my part.
This book was hastily jammed out by a couple faculty types who can fill in the gaps during the lectures. Good on them - class or no, there are LOT of gaps. I'm not sure what their course is about, perhaps Embedded Systems programmed in C, but the material in the book is not comprehensive without a lot of help. There is a section on C, but it is really sketchy.
The overview of the BeagleBone Black hardware adds essentially nothing to the materials posted at BeagleBone.org. When compared to the free presentation by the CEO of BeagleBoard ([...] the book is a complete waste of time.
Bad to the Bone essentially presents some class projects, and gives enough material to maybe get through the work with the help of a decent TA, but newcomers aren't going to really learn the whys-and-wherefores. Project source codes are given, but I didn't spot a URL where one might get the sources. (I've found the effort of typing something blindly from a book isn't terribly educational - it's much more profitable to use the time to dig into why things are done a certain way, and what alternative techniques are available.)
There is more sketchiness about Linux programming.Read more ›

Just finished reading this book and can tell you that it is not worth the money. Particularly if you are using beagle bone black as some code will not work with it. Read morePublished on September 1, 2013 by M.G
I found this book to be too basic for any reasonable embedded needs, but too complicated for complete beginners. It is also all over the place and lacks focus.Published on August 30, 2013 by Tobias F
