These are some of the books / publications that I've been involved in.
This is my first professionally published book, published by Apress.
The book is a guide to learning electronics and physical computing through projects involving the Raspberry Pi. It covers various electronic components, sensors and outputs using fun projects to build. This includes games using Scratch and Python and controlling robots and Lego (using infra-red). It's designed for those looking to get started in electronics as well as those looking for fun project ideas.
It starts at the very basics using simple switches controlling a Scratch game. It then moves on to more complicated electronic circuits including various different sensor, controlloing motors and one of my favourites NeoPixels (RGB LEDs). It also goes on to more complicated circuit designs and how to design and have made a PCB.
This is a free eBook that I specifically wrote for the PenguinTutor.com website. It explains the process in creating your own Raspberry Pi robot, using a basic robot chassis.
The book starts with initial design aspect, including creating the electronics to control the robot and programming in python to control it.
The web page below also includes a link to creating a web based interface which allows the robot to be controlled from a web browser or mobile phone.
In addition to the books that I wrote myself, here are some books that I have been the technical reviewer for.
