    I just started messing with electronics so this is timely and interesting. And his accent is absolutely mesmerizing.

    Not that many years ago electronic classes were available in many high schools. They have gone the way of shop classes. Districts don’t want to budget the money. The classes at community colleges are vanishing for a different reason. Technical work has been sent overseas. What is left is a need for system troubleshooting which is essentially board swapping. Nothing gets “fixed” anymore and many circuit boards are constructed such that fixing them is close to impossible.

      We have a local EE that is teaching an evening course on programing arduino at the high school. I think arduino and raspberry pi are bringing electronics back to the grass roots level. (like the crystal radio kits of my childhood)  I am hopeful.

    I’d learn anything in that accent.

    Massimo Banzi, where have you been all my life?

    THIS is the for-doofuses electronics intro that I’ve always been looking for.  

    It’s like I’ve learned to see a new color today.

    I agree – this is a great piece of hardware. I liked another nifty tool for trying out basics of electronic circuits at – http://www.DoCircuits.com.
