How to transfer a solderless breadboard circuit to a more permanent feed-through printed circuit board using soldering iron, jumper wires and hand tools.
•  Handtools Overview: Solder and Soldering irons, 
    de-soldering tools, diagonal cutters, needlenose pliers,
    wire strippers 
•  Working with feed-through printed circuit boards 
•  Mounting components and jumpers to interconnect
    circuits from breadboard

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
