Electronics for Beginners
If you’re new to the IoT or have never worked with electronics, you may be wondering how you’re going to get your ideas for an IoT solution realized. The projects in this book walk you through how to connect the various components used and thus you can complete them without a lot of additional information or specialized skills. Rather than attempt to present a comprehensive tutorial on electronics, which would take several volumes, this chapter presents an overview of electronics for those who want to work with the types of electronic components commonly found in IoT projects. I include an overview of some of the basics, descriptions of common components, and a look at sensors. If you are new to electronics, this chapter gives you the extra boost you need to understand the components used in the projects in this book.
