About this Resource

Very few technologies require such high levels of both theory and hands-on skill as electronics. (Maybe brain surgery, but electronics is on that same list). Come on in and look around. If learning something more about electronics is on your do-list, you've arrived at the right place. 

  • You will find mostly technical stuff on this page. Go to our Facebook page to explore more about real people learning and doing real electronics.
     
  • This page is frequently updated. Check the Facebook page to keep up with the latest developments.

  IMPORTANT:   This is NOT just another bunch of courses. This is a collection of learning resources presented here in the spirit of radical lifelong learning.
