This book was published in 2017. While the techniques included still work, I would recommend getting the new

    I’ve bought and downloaded the book, but it doesn’t give you links to where you can buy the things needed to actually follow the examples. Help please! :(

    I work many times with leds ( I try to introduce leds whenever it’s possible ) but for my last Eternal Sailor Moon project I wanted to work with led stripes or something like this. So this book was perfect for me, also for future projects. But this time I decided not to work with anduino because I found a good alternative for me ( led strips+ remote controll with no solder or program abilities -> I must only insert a plug). Nevertheless I find this book great because …
    – easy to understand ( english is not my best friend , only a friend;D)
    -helpfull pictures
    -good motivation
    -although I found an alternative to anduino, I think her book explains very good every step the work with anduino
    -not only for beginner , also for people like me. I got new ideas and tips
    -tips for soldering
    -tips for diffusing lights

    thank you Svetlanna for this great book

    This book was so helpful in learning how to use Arduino! I already knew basic soldering techniques but the examples of programming and how to use Arduino were really helpful and led to some cool light effects for my costume! I would definitely recommend this book to someone new to using neopixels and Arduino because it is so helpful to have as a reference.
