Bluetooth 5 e-book (plus video tutorials, exercises, and source code)

Do you get sick of scouring the internet for Bluetooth 5 and BLE resources? Do you feel lost or get stuck during the development of your BLE project? Are you excited about Bluetooth 5 and its possibilities but don't know where to start? Do you experience pain when referring to the official spec and its daunting 2,800+ pages??!

You're not alone... I've been there and experienced every single one of those pains myself! Back in March 2016, I decided to start a blog about Bluetooth Low Energy. I wanted to provide a one-stop resource for others who are going through the same path or wanting to learn how to develop for the technology.

A few weeks ago I announced my plans to work on a new project: an e-book that can serve as a practical guide for anyone looking to develop for Bluetooth 5 and Bluetooth Low Energy in general.

The e-book will feature the new Ellisys Bluetooth Tracker, Nordic nRF52 series, and the Raspberry Pi.

This will be way more than just an e-book! It will include video tutorials, practical examples, exercises with complete source code, design checklists, sniffer captures, and more! The best part of an e-book vs. hard copy is that you'll be getting continuous updates and extra content over time without having to do anything on your end (other than checking your email, of course!).

To learn more and stay updated on its progress and launch, visit the main book website:

Bluetooth 5 & Bluetooth Low Energy: A Developer's Guide

By signing up, you'll also get access to the Table of Contents as well as exclusive early access to FREE sample content when it becomes available.

If you have any suggestions please don't hesitate to let me know!

Hi Let me know if you want to have some demonstrations using the Laird modules which have an event driven BASIC progamming language to quickly put together working demos. I would also love to collaborate in some way in making Ble Mesh more understandable to normal users. That spec is very heavy going and you can't see the woods for the trees :-)

All the best as something like this was needed long time ago.

Best regards
