A Designer's Guide to Processing, Arduino, and openFrameworks
About the Author
Josh Noble is a consultant, freelance developer and Rich Internet Application designer, based in Brooklyn, New York. He's the lead author of O'Reilly's Flex 3 Cookbook (released May 2008).
As a graduate student, Joshua Noble studied interactive art, teaching himself programming and electronics using available resources on the internet. After school, he began teaching coding to art and design students interested in interactive design at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. He found an acute need for a book that taught the technical aspects of programming and computing for interactive art and design as well as some of the theoretical and conceptual aspects of design interaction. He's worked extensively with each of the tools discussed in this book and has taught the subject at workshops, colleges, and to friends.

-> Interfacing the Arduino with practically any kind of device you can imagine: motion sensors, accelerometers, stepper motors, appliances... the list goes on and on.
-> Using the Arduino to talk to Processing applications (easier than you think, it's just Serial communication!)
-> Image processing with Openframeworks
-> Networking in Processing and Arduino
Seriously, it really is in-depth. Take a look at the index if you don't believe me.
I bought this book along with the Arduino Uno. My one caution to those that want to do the same is this: The setup information for Arduino doesn't exactly cover the Uno. The Uno (and the new Mega) came out after this book was released. BUT, the process hasn't really changed at all. You shouldn't have any problems.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to get involved with any of the three technologies the book covers.
After reading the first Chapter or two, I laid it aside for a couple of weeks, hoping to sell it on e-bay or something. I picked it up again, thumbed to some random location in the middle of the book and found that I was "hooked". I downloaded the Processing language Development Environment as suggested in the book, found it was virtually identical to the Arduino language (from which it was derived), and was delighted that the book delved very nicely into the "nuances" that I had been looking for.
I have little interest in OpenFrameWorks language, but this book gives me everything I hoped for related to Arduino and Processing. It is thorough, simple when it needs to be simple, and more in-depth when appropriate. I recommend this book to anyone who has a desire to become proficient in the programming environment used by Arduino. (BTW...if you don't know what an Arduino is, you probably should NOT by this book!)
Absolutly clear on how to make things work, both hardware and software. Those who are not too familiar with electronics or programming will find the practical examples in this book easy to reproduce. Some problems may be encountered with "Openframeworks" though, having it up and running at the beginning. There are some links and forums where any unskilled individual can find help anyway.
This is a "must read" for the creative artist, designer, architect, etc.
I am learning the Arduino and have found this book such an in-depth and invaluable reference. It's a well written book that presents each language from the ground up so that even the complete beginner isn't lost. This book is for all, no matter what stage of learning.
If you're just started with the Arduino, or already have some experience with the Arduino and want to learn more you will NOT be disappointed.
