The code is simple enough and because he uses libraries for some of the functions you can pretty easily find more info on the web about it.
I decided to write my computer code in mono instead of python and was still very easy to follow along and convert.
Just keep in mind it's not going to tell you exactly how to rig your house up for automation. It's just the starting points for you to expand upon.
Each chapter has code examples you can repeat. It would be nice to have them downloadable, but re-typing does help you learn.
The introduction of Python is an interesting twist to using only Processing for the Arduino, and a necessary one in order to communicate with your Arduino from your computer and ultimately the internet.
The Python is really the only reason I did not give it 5 stars. I know it is a necessary component in order to get everything to work, and Marco does a good job in giving you resources to work with and install Python. But as a complete newbie to Python, I had trouble installing and understanding the most rudimentary operations of Python. I eventually found a tutorial on Adafruit that helped me to install Python on my computer. A little more hand holding thru installing, coding and using an ide would be more than helpful even though it's really somewhat out of the scope of the book.
I especially enjoyed how to actually manufacture your own PCB, and the whole process Marco takes you on was logical and progressive with easy to follow code samples, and careful annotation about what each line does.
Some of the code can be downloaded from other websites, but the coherent explanations are useful.
Billed as a book for beginners, the book starts off doing a great job and really covers a lot of topics. Unfortunately the book fails in two respects to continue teaching beginners the basics. First, it leaps from beginner topics to advanced without any bridge, this is especially evident with some of the schematics that aren't explained and are a little difficult to follow. Secondly, the book refers to some electronic components that are not available through the links provided on their website and are difficult to find in general with no mention of replacement parts.
Overall, even if this book makes a leap to far for some, the parts that are manageable are great. I would recommend keeping this book in your library to refer back to when your skills improve as well as using as a primer for beginners.
