A friend of mine has decided to learn electronics and has started a blog
It might be of interest to those who are on the same learning path, and give a sense of nostalgia to the most experienced of you… Maybe a source of motivation for those who have been building stuffs without taking the time to properly learn how it all works?
hm, the address of the blog seems wrong. I only get a error message. - But the idea sounds nice
Ooh. Perfect for me. I’m in.
The address is right. My friend told me this morning that Blogger disabled his account because they suspected the blog was spam.
Yeah it all those links to download mirrors for .EXE files might have caused the confusion…
Is he certain he wasn’t hacked?
I suspect that ‘many articles created at once’ + ‘many links to commercial sites’ (make, parts dealers, and… here) was enough to trigger the link-spam detector. Shame!
Cool, I’ll keep an eye on it!
This is exactly where I’m at. I want to learn how those tiny, mysterious little creatures with legs that I like to bend actually works. I have been mening to ask about a good place to start. Your friends blog might well hold the answer.
He’s following the Make:Electronics book which covers many topics. 80% of this book is of no use if you only focus on audio/music applications, but it’s still worth learning
If you decide to get this eBook, have a look here
Not interesting for europeans, as this book is available via Amazon way cheaper than from this site itself, due to shipping and taxes.
Shipping? E-books is where it’s at. But if you want a physical version that’s a valid point There’s all sorts of pricing fail going on, competing with Amazon can’t be easy.
I need a print to put a bookmark in, else i clearly forget where i stopped reading
Bookmarked. Exactly what I need. All the books I bought where totally over my head except the “Dummies” one
second that, it’s a great book, the little I know about electronics I’ve got it from there… and from messing with stuff of course
Here’s a link to Nick Collins site - Handmade Electronic Music
It’s a top notch site for newbies and electro-experi-mentalists. I’ve got his book which is well worth a read (if you sniff around google you should find a free pdf version although I’m not sure whether it’s a ‘pirate’ pdf or not.)
