Hi, M.Banzi, I had very impression of your book “Getting Started with Arduino”.
Because you are very simply and easily teaching about Arduino in that book.
So, I think that if more students in Korea can read the book easily, it is Goood!
I have a proposal. Would I translate that book to korean?
Please give me a chance. and contact me via email. 🙂
