Im an EE who is more analog oriented, and eventhough I did get my fair share of "digitial" and microcontroller programming at college, the Arduino and Raspberry Pi stuff is relatively foreign land to me, perhaps it was because they were sometimes frowned upon by college instructors, specially Arduinos, probably because everyone nowadays can download a code into an arduino and have a working project with out actually knowing anything about electronics or programming, so I can understand their discontent.This book covers a great deal of 'pre-made' or 'plug-n-play' sensors and or sensor boards out there, assumes zero electronics knowledge from the reader, and very basic programming skills, electronic theory is almost non-existen, yet it mentions the most relevant stuff. This book is a great resource to familiarize yourself with the new gadgets out there, which again, wont be covered in most schools with a more traditional and professional oriented approach. Im surprised at how easy it is to do things with these boards, everything is already pre-made for you in a library, I actually feel a bit bad about it, like a trained monkey just using the pre-made libraries since I was always taught to bit bang most of the stuff, then again that gave me a better understanding of the inner workings which this book lacks.That being said, I believe this is not only an excelent and fun book about sensors, but also it is a great resource to learn how to program on the Arduino or Raspberry Pi, it is particularly easy if you already know C or Python. It will definitely help aspiring amateurs make interesting projects, and will also help EE's to discover newer gadgets or perhaps get an idea on how to solve a certain problem by looking at the different posibilities out there.
