Hello Everyone,

My name is Tristan and I am from South Georgia (USA)
After two years learning computer programming at my local technical college I got very interested how software and hardware interact at a basic level.
One thing led to another and now I'm addicted to embedded programming, fiddling around with components on a bread board, and electric theory :)
At the moment I am having fun controlling LEDs in interesting ways and I am working on creating a NiMH battery charger. 

I look forward to participating in the forum!

I'm a software engineer (looking into a career change because I'm sick of it).  I've been into electronics since childood and got serious about it over the last 7 or 8 years.  I like to make my own tools where I can (best way to learn).  I've got loads of designs and stuff I'll share in the relevant forums.  On the bright side, having a full set of software skills is pretty handy for working with MCUs and the like :)

Currently i'm a Linux Embedded Systems developer, i've learned some basic electronics and basic / asm programming, ending up studing electrical/electronic engineering as complement, since most knowledge was obtained outside school enviromment or when was pratical projects envolved. It all started withh the screw driver and tear apart things...
Currently i've developed some projects with microcontrollers, electronics, electrical stuff up to 230V ( relay's, triacs)  and most recently become a software guy on Embedded Linux, most developing drivers, leaving almost behind the electronics and now i'm trying to remember all to complement my work capabilites, maybe it will become as a hobby too.

Ocassionally i do some repairs , nothing too special.

For extra enjoy i practice some sports like swimming , hikking and sometimes running.

So teaching and learning will be the cycle of life.  \$\Omega\$


Best Regards,

If one can make knowledge flow than it will go from negative to positve , for real

My name is Alan.  I picked up an interest in electronics back in high school.  Fortunately or unfortunately, I picked up a whole lot of interests at that time.  The limiting factor in those days was that anything beyond simple discrete logic chips was complicated to work with and expensive.  My studies followed the jack of all trades path... Systems Design Engineering.  Along the way I picked up a HAM radio license, mainly as a skill for a car rally organizer.  My interest is re-kindled by all the modern possibilities from microprocessors, the design tools now available, the PCB services and the internet to learn it all.  Work does not allow me to actually do design as my position is regulatory in the transportation field.  Projects I would like to do involve home automation and interfacing with my rally car (ISO9141).

My name is Jason and I have an addiction to the EEVblog on YouTube.  I hear this is the support group.

In all seriousness, I have just started to delve into the channel and have been learning a lot.

I currently live in Wisconsin and wrapping up my last semester of school for my BSEE degree from UW-Platteville.  I started off my professional career on the other side, doing mechanical work.  I have a BSME degree from UW-Platteville and an MSEM degree from Milwaukee School of Engineering.  I have been seriously working on electronics and electrical engineering for just over two years now.  I have been drinking from the fire hose ever since and the EEVblog has been a lifesaver.

I currently work full time and Broan NuTone in the Advanced Engineering group, doing mostly R&D work. I get to spend my days playing with various sensors, LED lighting, motors, controllers, custom PCBAs, firmware, and software (APPS).  The best part of my job is coming up with solutions to problems you don't even know you have.  And making mistakes and learning.

In my spare time I enjoy tinkering around in my workshop (which is just getting underway) and I look forward to learning and giving back to the EEVblog community when and where I can.

Recent electrical engineering graduate, from New Zealand, with my first real job in power distribution. An electronics hobbyist in my spare time. In the market to buy a function generator! (and an LCR meter)

Currently been working on a 10x10x10 RGB led cube, (on and off again for 2 years (including uni study)), currently trying to solve an issue with what I think is noise on the SPI bus of my control electronics for the cube. |O  Will post some photos when it gets up and running.

Never been especially active on forums, but will give it a go!

My career is in software quality assurance in the area of software performance testing

A few years back I was introduced to EEVblog by a news article that linked to one of Dave's videos debunking a solar roadway installation.
I watched more EEVblog videos and read through general topics on the forum for close to a year.
Thanks in part to Dave and the EEVblog community, my interest in electronics has moved to an active hobby.

I'm now working through Make: Electronics and supplementing with Practical Electronics for Inventors.
My bench consists of the equipment and components required for the Make: Electronics and Make: More Electronics books.

G'day everyone,

Another 'local' 'strayan here.

As the tag implies I'm a bit of an old hack. I have been dabbling in electronics since I was about 6-7, so that's 40+ years of hacksawing my way around various bits n pieces.
I've been lurking here randomly over the last 5 years, but never bothered to register. I have no idea why, I just never bothered, possibly has something to do with my work.. I figured I should do the needful.
My occupation is in software QC, for a large multinational IT network equip vendor. Highly specialized role and completely irrelevant to 90% of the real-world.

I spend my hobby time hacksawing and destructive testing / fabricobbling stuff. Mostly stuffing around with mech-elec related gear, also mostly on things that propel people (cars, bikes, skateboards etc) and playing a few instruments.

I'm here to learn stuff I should have paid more attention to 25 years ago.

I'm also learning to 'upgrade' my hacksaw lab with some decent quality test and measurement gear. I have old analog stuff, and some good quality gear, but I need some more precision gear to help me move forward.
I have spent time playing with valve amps etc. I've stuffed around with reverse engineering ignition map drivers in old cars to convert into 3d maps for modern closed loop efi. I made my first PCB with a tandy kit about 35 years ago, and learned stuff like how to build circuits from kits and schematics from EA/ETI/Silicon chip magazines back in the day. So Hacksaw is probably the most appropriate name.

I feel that I need to reboot and refresh my nvram and learn a few new things related to industrial circuits and the like.

I also need to learn about basic things like the best way to purchase consumables, even though I am sporadic with my spend at places like element 14/mouser/rs etc. Also what's the best way to do PCB's these days - e.g. farm out or buy a machine/small cnc etc... Then there's the  how to sniff out quality components from crap and the hotbed of PRC banggod etc stuff is it worth it...

I know I'll have lots of obviously noob questions, I'm familiar with searching so naturally I'll look for an answer before I ask everyone the 'dumb questions'..
Got a lot of ground to cover to reinvest the gery matter into hardware.
That's about it for the moment.

Hope I can climb out of the dark ages into modernity...

Hi everyone,

I am Corrado from near Rome, civil engineer but electronics is one of my hobbies since I was a kid. Great forum!

Hi Folks,

I've been dabbling with hobby robotics and electronic kinetic art on and off since 1997. I've recently decided to blow the dust off my gear and repair some of my old projects. I have several that I built on the old OOPIC Platform, and another with just an AVR and a C compiler. Well, I've lost the C compiler and the code, and OOPic is out of business  :-\. So I've got some work cut out for me to reverse engineer them and replace the microcontroller so I can do some upgrades.

I'm also very excited to have replaced my 2nd edition of The Art of Electronics with the 3rd edition!

Hi folks,

I'm Robert, a Mental Health Nurse from the UK. I'm looking into dabbling with electronics, learning more about all the components and tools used to resolve issues, with a potential new hobby developing repairing broken PC parts.

I am a complete novice so pretty useless regarding advice or guidance, but I hope to learn much as I develop my understanding from you fine people :)

Have fun folks!
