I take you from woe to go! Get started with electronics and making interactive media quickly. In this course I show you how to get up and running on the Arduino platform so you can make your own projects to interact with the world.
Colourful lights? TICK!
Potential robot overlords? BETTER BELIEVE IT!
Automate garden watering? IF THE OVERLORDS SAY SO!
Learn the basics and move up the ladder quickly exploring the exciting and useful world of electronics with this course. You will learn the components and how to break down components so you can be self sufficient.
This course is for people that are interested in interactive media and people that want to learn the basis for electronics. We quickly move onto projects allowing you to put the skills you have learnt to the test.
Remember, I am always here to help you though your project and answer questions along the way!
So lets get started!
Here we learn how to install the Arduino software on Windows

I have always been more curious than a cat. After blowing up my TV as a kid, electrocuting myself taking apart a record player and trying every setting in on my computer to see what happened there was only one career for me, I became an engineer.
As an Electrical / Mechatronic engineer I have worked on mine sites, rigs and remote locations building control systems driving large compressors, medium pumps and tiny electronics.
My passion for inventing and teaching have led me to share what I know. I teach in person and online to inventors, artists, and hobbyists. I have built many items for people including a automatic cocktail machine, a physical Facebook like counter, and farm tracking equipment.
I am a big fan of the internet of things (IoT) and you will usually find me connecting everything to the internet. Feel free to say hi, I look forward to meeting you.
