As posted a short while ago, DanyK (aka DiodeGoneWild) finally has a scope. In his usual DaveCad fashion, he put together a nice-short primer.

I'd get shot if I posted it, but search: DiodeGoneWild - Hidden Camera Reveals what My Cat Does in the Bathroom. I find cats are a mixed lot, some trust the owner, but some loath any owner. Still, I fear the temptation shown may push me too far.. >:D

Glad I found this, the NEETS is a good read for the noobs as myself but people are actually selling it on eBay for around $4.00 usd !!

Thank you for sharing.

Welcome to the last poster! FWIW, it's better not to overwrite BBS code when quoting posts (that link didn't show..)
No problem, I think it was this one? http://www.hnsa.org/resources/manuals-documents/2575-2/

Hey all:

Here are a couple of sources I've been using to learn about Arduino (I know, dumb...) and the ESP8266:

https://leanpub.com/kolban-ESP32

https://www.udemy.com/

The first is a *free online book by somebody who really knows about computers, and who has written 400+ pages about setting up and using the ESP8266.

The second has a number of courses related to electronics in general and microcontrollers in particular; some topics to browse might include Arduino, IoT, ARM micros, robotics and home automation.

*Neither source is strictly free, but Mr. Kolban's download link wouldn't let me pay him any money, and Udemy is constantly running introductory discounts for new students that drastically slash their prices, so it might pay to check it out.

Apologies if these have already been mentioned; this thread is getting kinda long.... Which shows that there is a lot of interest.

Hi all:

On the same topic as my previous post, here's a link that I would not have known about had I not registered for an Arduino course on udemy.com. As far as I can tell through a cursory overlook, EVERYTHING on this site is totally free. Not only Arduino-related material, but also a wealth of information on RaspberryPi, programming in C, microcontrollers in general, plus analog and digital electronics and a lot more that I have not yet delved into. There are forums, downloadable code snippets and quite a few videos.

https://core-electronics.com.au/

(After that glowing review, please let me state categorically that I have NO personal or commercial involvement with these people; I just think they have a well-organized & informative site. They run work$hops in Australia, and--I don't wish to incur the wrath of Mr. Jones by potentially tapping into his lucrative market share--they also sell stuff....)

Thanks - I added them to my list.  I also got confused so I asked this:

Tektronix also did a complete set of labs on on the Pi and Arduino. Doesn't seem to be available anymore. ...

My guess is they took the labs down and include them with their Edu scope to increase its educational value.  Too bad

I found this one for the TI MSP430

http://www.audentia-gestion.fr/Tektronix/ST_MSP430_Labs_Combined.pdf

Anyone have the .ino files?

The Tektronix Courseware are now located here:

Hi to everyone,
I want to learn more about control systems, mainly digital control systems - theory and practical  uses. Recently i had to implement a PID controll with a microcontroller and while i managed do it with the help of random google results and youtube tutorials i want to learn about it in more consistent way.
Can you recommend me a book or other source of information in this field?
I've heard good thinks about Modern Control Engineering by Katsuhiko Ogata and Control Systems Engineering by Norman S. Nise seems to be populer choice. Should i get them?
Thanks a ton!

I did about half of this free control systems course when it was offered.  It was pretty good. I'm not sure if they will offer it again but you can try registering and see if you can access the archived course.
