What is your experience level with electronics?

Fairly deep - I've been an eng tech for ~17 years in HW/SW/Embedded/etc - my design skills are pretty stale, though.

What is your experience level with programming?

I've had classes as part of my quest towards a BS at OIT, but I'm retaking many of them as I've been out of school for a decade and just getting back in.

What draws you to electronics?

Hard question. I guess one day I found out that I might be good at some of it and embedded is what really gets me involved. With that, it's the instant gratification - I got some hardware, write a little code, and voila...something happens.

What do you want to build?

1000 char is not enough to describe. I guess I'd just like to build things that lend themselves to being reusable components of future larger designs as well as continually working on more advanced projects to better my skills.
