Jeremy Blum is a well-known person to the lovers of the Arduino. He publishes his tutorials on YouTube on the Arduino which has been watched by millions of people across the various countries. He is also the author of the book “Exploring Arduino”.
Jeremy has received his bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Computer Engineering. Thereafter he received his Master’s Degree from the same college.
Jeremy has significant efforts towards developing things. He has been awarded for developing gesture recognition system and building self-assembling robots. Moreover, he has designed electronics for 3D-printers which is even used by NASA.
Jeremy Blum has been involved in kind of new thing which helps students become entrepreneur. Jeremy has also mentioned in his profile that he supports the ideas which have the capability to change how we collaborate and innovate. He considers himself not only a skilled engineer but also an excellent communicator.
I believe that creative engineering solutions can be applied to solve the world’s toughest problems, that engineering education is critical, and that our solutions can be simultaneously beautiful and functional.
Jeremy is not only limited to all this, but he has also made a fantastic series of tutorials on Arduino on his Youtube channel. His tutorials are widely known for their excellency where Jeremy has explained each and every topic from their basis in a clear and crisp manner.
Meanwhile, Jeremy has been the author of his book ”Exploring Arduino”. I have read the book myself and found it one of the mandatory tools for learning Arduino. This book has been a lot helpful in clearing my basics and let me think about electronics in a new manner.
I got this book from my friend. I sharing this as this is a must-have tool that you would enjoy reading. Here is the link to the book

Enjoy this book.
Who This Book Is For
This book is for Arduino enthusiasts of all experience levels. Chapters build upon each other, utilizing concepts and project components from previous chapters to develop more complex ideas. But don’t worry. Whenever you face new, complex ideas, a cross-reference reminds you where you first encountered any relevant building-block concepts so that you can easily refresh your memory.
This book assumes that you have little or no previous experience working with programming or electrical engineering. To facilitate readers of various experience levels, the book features a number of optional sections and sidebars, or short excerpts, that explain a particular concept in greater detail. Although these sidebars are not obligatory for you to gain a good understanding of how to use the Arduino, they do provide a closer look at technical topics for the more curious reader.
