Bunnie Huang's "Essential Guide to Electronics in Shenzhen"

Bunnie has a years of experience partnering with manufacturers in Shenzhen, so he knows what he's talking about. This looks like a fantastic resource for hardware entrepreneurs.

Bunnie Huang, the infamous hardware hacker known for reverse engineering the XBox and the Novena, is publishing “The Essential Guide to Electronics in Shenzhen.” He started a crowdfunding campaign on Crowd Supply yesterday and it soared past its goal of $10K (at $30-$35 a copy) in less than 24 hours.

This is a must-have guide for any hardware startup founder, maker, or IoT developer looking to China to manufacture. Overcoming the language barrier is one of the keys to unlocking the market’s full potential, and this book’s point-to-translate format enables a fluidity of interaction with market vendors that no translation app or guide book can match.

"Going to Shenzhen, China is a massive enabler for Makers, hackers, and entrepreneurs alike. The Essential Guide to Electronics in Shenzhen is the book I wish I had when I first stepped foot into China a decade ago.” - bunnie
