What are people saying about Arduino Step by Step

SeaCay The BitsDuJour email I got says "Ends Today!" and the linked page says "Deal Coming Soon". So which one is correct?

Constantin Florea @SeaCay - I am sorry about the issue. It is now fixed. The promotion is intended to run in the next few days at which time the discount will be available.

Norwel Gordon Thank you for your reply to SeaCay's Question. It came as I was starting to type a similar question.

Next question: Under "FEATURES" I see "Benefit from 10.5 hours of content across 56 lectures".

The Udemy site suggests " Lifetime access to 91 lectures and 34 quizzes
15+ hours of high quality content"

Is this offer for an older version?

Constantin Florea @Norwel Gordon - We are promoting the latest version for this course. It seems the page on Udemy is continually updated, for example now it mentions 92 lectures. I have just updated the promotion page description we have to reflect the latest numbers.

Norwel Gordon Thank you Constantin,

Sounds like another good offer from BDJ.

Rajeev Rohatgi How does this work -- does the course need to be taken during a limited period of time after purchase, or can one access it as and when required anytime in the future?

Mark Johnson @Rajeev - courses from Udemy can be taken any time you want. You might purchase a course today for example, and a year from now there might be an update to it. You get access to the update as well.

See :


I do recommend that you go ahead and enroll in a course soon after purchase instead of waiting until you are ready to actually start on the course. That ensures you have access to the course from that point on.

marko ifebo Bonjour.

Ces cours existent-ils en langue française ?

Que La @marko ifebo - We’ve contacted the vendor regarding your question.

Que La @marko ifebo - We got this reply from the vendor : Thanks for reaching out! Unfortunately, the course “Arduino Step by Step: Your Guide to the Internet of Things” is not available in French.

Matt Hello,

I purchased this Arduino course several months ago here on BDJ.

It is an excellent course! The instructor is very active on the discussion board and is often adding new content. It's now over 15 hours.

Great course!

There is also a new X86 Assembly course on Udemy that I'm hoping BDJ can work out a deal with.

Thank you.

George Butel Are these video lectures downloadable via one of the standard youtube-like downloaders (such as Applian Replay or MyTube or some of the free browser extensions--or do the videos have the option to "save as" some kind of video format), or do they have to be streamed? I've been in love with the Teaching Company and have bought a number of their courses, but, due to having molasses-speed dsl from AT&T, it's much easier to buy dvds than it is to download.

Is this course available in DVD format?

I am curious about the presentation format: ten minutes per lecture seems strange to me, although there must be something about this particular material that makes it more suitable that way. I could have had a dozen majors in college if the lectures had only been that long. Could you perhaps discuss how this particular course is organized?

Matt Hi George,

The video lectures can be downloaded from links within the lectures. I don't use the links. I download them in mp4 format using Firefox and the DownloadHelper (ver. 4.9.24) add-on.

The lectures are not available in DVD format.

10 to 15 minute lectures are about the perfect amount of time for me and I'm guessing for most others as well for the more technical courses. It allows the instructor to cover a certain concept and the student to practice what he has just viewed. Other courses like drawing, painting, etc. can have video from 30 to 60 minutes and more in length.

The term 'Lecture' is used very loosely. A lecture can consist of video, pdf downloads, source code, other supplemental material and quizzes.

Most courses allow previewing before purchasing.

Hope this helps.

Rick Truell George: I don't know if you'll see this in time, since it's about 3 hours until the end of day 2 of the deal as I submit this and it'll take time until it's approved for posting, but here's some answers for you. Note that I don't work for either BDJ or Udemy; I'm just a regular user of BDJ like yourself.

I have the Video DownloadHelper add-on for Firefox ( https://addons.mozilla.or...oadhelper/ ) and it allowed me to download the videos for one of the courses (not this one, but it should work the same for all their courses) in .mp4 format, which easily played in VLC ( ) on Windows XP. Since VLC is also available for OS X, various Linux distros, iOS and Android, the videos in .mp4 format should be playable on pretty much anything.

I don't know if the courses are available in DVD format but you raise a good point...Udemy probably should look into making their courses available on DVD (at a small additional cost, obviously) for the vast number of people that can't get, or can't afford, [decent] broadband service.

If you click on the 'website' link under the lower-right corner of the graphic at the top of this page, you'll be taken to the web page for this course, where you can see how the course is laid out. There are even previews for several of the videos, which will give you an idea of how they work.

John H I purchased this the last time around. The instructor seems to enjoy teaching this and is very active in the discussion board.

I have tried other courses and expensive books and they are all half baked compared to this course. Free content just has no real continuity.

Alberto Castillo I am unsure, but Udemy hasn't been working all day for me. When I try to log on it says: The requested content cannot be loaded.
