Learn the Theory

Having a strong understanding of the basics - basic skills, techniques, and theory - will help your understanding of other tutorials and help you build your project successfully.

The internet is a great place to learn about electronics but I feel there are a few "practical" lessons missing. I had been using transistors for years without understanding how to spec a transistor, for example. I can copy/paste parts lists from other projects and tutorials I find online but if I don't know why those components are chosen I am limited in my ability. Also: how do you get your project off the breadboard and implemented in your final system? With these tutorials I hope to help you close these gaps. Free yourself from relying on electronic 'recipes' from others. Get yourself off the breadboard and make your creation really come to life!

I hope you enjoy these tutorials! They're not sequential like most of my other content, so feel free to skip around.
