I’ve written a few books and various articles, listed here.Lately I’ve started writing tutorials online, since it seems like the best venue for the kind of material I have previously put into books. I’ve also done some videos for the ITP physical computing course, in collaboration with Jeff Feddersen.

I’ve written three editions of this book now, each one a major rewrite. All three featured Arduino in networking, with different models each time. This edition features a p5.js for client-side programming and node.js for server-side. The sample code for all three editions is available on github at makingthingstalk.com.

2004 O’Sullivan, D. and Igoe, T. Physical Computing: Sensing and Controlling the Physical World with Computers. Boston: Muska & Lipman.
Originally written for the intro to physical computing course at ITP, it was written before Arduino existed. The conceptual material is still accurate, even though the platforms are no longer used at my institution.
I’ve written a number of short online tutorials to complement some of the code examples I’ve written. All of these are stored on GitHub Pages, and have a corresponding code repository, linked from the home page of each mini-site.
Sound Examples. Started 2018. A collection of sound and music examples for Arduino. There are simple tone examples, MIDI examples, and examples for sound playback components.
Light Projects Started 2019. A collection of LED lighting projects controlled by microcontrollers.
