Basic Breadboard Electronic Series (Power Sources & Test Equipment Week 4 of 10)

The Basic Breadboard Electronics learning series is designed to train and empower anyone with an interest in electronics to be able to master the basics. We will cover component identification and properties, Ohm's Law, power, test equipment, common analog and digital circuits, sensors, motors, integrated circuits, microprocessors and modules. The theory will be limited to the scope of a weekend hobbyist and what is needed to enable you to confidently select the best component values and develop your own projects.

We are going to begin November 23rd and run every Saturday morning at the new MakerSpace until January 25th (10 consecutive weeks).
Jaycon is offering parts kits to correspond with the labs each week for $10; which are optional but highly encouraged for the 'hands-on' fun element of learning.

Please 'RSVP' by responding to this thread so we have enough materials available.
The site is complete, containing all of the material, handouts, etc

    I agree with everyone about curtailing the secondary conversations..James can wander off subject enough on his own sometimes - grin

    That is a perpetual problem for most meetings. Maybe Jim can stop the class net time just for a moment and wait for one discussion (his) it should only take once or twice to curtail that behavior.
    Great class as usual. Lots of Good Information, class ran a little over and had to leave at Noon.
    Downloaded Electronic Toolbox Pro version for the iPhone - cl;adulators, circuits, IC's, Arduino, RaspPi, LED, transformers, almost everything you need at your fingertips on electronic circuits.

    it would be a lot better if people would pay attention to the instructor instead of doing there own thing and have a little more focus during the lecture other than that its AWESOME!!!! good job james and jaycon

    I have a self-test that would be good to perform before our next class,

    We are planning on having this Saturday's class (#4) as scheduled on Dec 21; but many have asked for the next one on the 28th to be postponed; so please let us move it to January 4th.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
