About the Book

*NOTE: I'm currently at the stage of gathering feedback on the book's concept, please let me know about your interest in the form above! :)*

There’s a chance you already know how to code in some high-level language (probably WEB) and never had any experience with electronics and stuff. Maybe you think it’s too hard because there are too many moving parts to learn about.

The good news is: it’s not as hard as it looks. It surely has an infinity of moving parts and components, and a hideous theory behind all that electricity stuff. But hey… The year is 2018 and we have now so many options available to the hobbyists alike! You can build a bunch of cool stuff, make things sparkle and blink and buzz, with just some basic electronics knowledge. Purely as hobby, no strings attached, and just to have fun!

This guide is a really, really quick view of the essentials to start making things blink and buzz with digital electronics.

You'll learn about digital electronics, basic components, how to do basic soldering and what are the steps to move from a breadboard to an actual prototype that you can use. Best yet: illustrated!

The content is an illustrated version of my "Noob's crash course on electronics", which you can find here: .
