You can become an Arduino DIY master for as low as $30

The Complete Arduino Starter Kit has everything you need to get started on your own Arduino projects.

The tech sector moves at a blistering pace, and the barriers that kept many aspiring creators out a few years ago have all but come crashing down. Case in point, the Arduino platform has made it possible for virtually anyone to make their own apps, wearables, and even robots with little more than a circuit board and some basic programming know-how.

An open-source electronics platform used by creators around the world, Arduino gives anyone the ability to channel their inner tinkerer and produce truly inventive creations. What's more, getting started is easier than you think. With more than 30 hours of project-based training, the Complete Arduino Course Bundle is the perfect primer, and it's on sale for $29.99.

Comprised of 6 courses, this collection takes you through the essentials of working with the Arduino platform. You'll start with the basics, learning about various boards and software and exploring key concepts, like control statements, sketching, and variables. As you progress, you'll follow along guided tutorials for building hands-on projects, like a motion detector and RC car.

The collection features more advanced projects as you go along and will even expose you to the world of IoT (Internet of Things) with a tutorial on making a Web-based data logger. By making your way through more than 30 hours of instruction, you'll emerge from the Complete Arduino Course Bundle ready to build your own electronics.

The Complete Arduino Course Bundle is a solid starter on its own, but if you're looking for an even more beginner-friendly foray into the world of Arduino, the Complete Arduino Starter Kit & Course Bundle includes a hardware starter kit in addition to the training. Inside the kit, you'll find the famously user-friendly Uno R3 board, a host of wires, LEDs, sensors, and more, as well as instructions to get you building your own projects right away.

The Complete Arduino Starter Kit & Course Bundle is on sale for $89.99, more than 80% off its usual $608 retail price.
