My interest in Bluetooth Low Energy sparked in 2014. When I first started learning about BLE and how to develop applications on the embedded side, I spent hours, days, and weeks just researching and reading everything I can find on the topic. The learning curve was steep and going through the Bluetooth specification document was utterly frustrating!

Over the years, though, things started to make a lot more sense and I became much more comfortable with the technology. Looking back, I wished there were better books and resources that targeted developers with more practical exercises and examples.

It’s probably true for many technologies, but I’ve found that many of the resources and books on BLE leave a huge gap when going from theory to practice. I would learn something interesting about BLE from the specification, but then find out that using it and implementing it for a given platform was very disconnected from what I read.

Finally, last year in July 2017, I decided to write a book on Bluetooth 5 and Bluetooth Low Energy to help other developers starting on the same journey I had traveled before.
