Hey, I've been watching Dave for a few months now, i'm not a "EE" just a hobbyist. Some of you may know me from the adafruit forums and their Ask an Engineer chat. I'm currently a Student majoring in Network Administration and Internet Security. I live in Ohio(USA) with my parents(want to get out of here though, lol). I think thats about everything you guys need to know, if you want to know anything else ask, and I'll either tell you the answer, or tell yah its none of your business.

Hi everyone. I'm a programmer from England that's worked on e-commerce websites, EPOS systems and mobile devices. Developed an interest in electronics and am still learning, but not managed to blow anything up yet!  :)

I'm Matt, and I am an unemployed geek from the UK. I have found my passion for electronics being re-kindled, all thanks to Dave's incredible YouTube videos; never have I seen such a likeable and enthusiastic person. His videos are truly addictive, and I want to thank him (again) for everything he does, including this amazing forum, which has also given me the opportunity to buy a cheap and much needed analogue scope.

Thanks - this is a GREAT place, started by a great guy!  :D

Hi my name is Guðmundur Einarsson. But you can call me Gummi.
I am an Icelander curently living in the UK but hoping to return to the homeland in not to distant future.
I studied electronics but not a degree, I don’t know what its called in English, Electronics maybe…..
I have bin working in the industry for 8-9 years mostly doing AV installations.
For the last two years I have bin working as an AV maintenance engineer at The Science Museum in London witch is one of the coolest places in the world.

I love tinkering and building stuff as a hobby. I fixe tube amps for my musician friends and love building small circuits for solving stuff at work (555 is king). 
I am also getting into micro controllers a little bit.

All the best.

Gummi. ;D

Hi folks, I'm Wim Libaers, 28 years old, and from Flanders. Studied chemistry, currently unemployed and ending a PhD in chemistry which involved some chemistry, lots of optics and quite a bit of electronics and programming too (but mostly on commercial measurement equipment). As a hobby, I started to learn more about the basics of electronics to see how it all fits together.

I'm John, I've been building stuff with microprocessors since an 8088 with an 8087 coprocessor was still considered hot stuff.  I've even sent a bunch of them into space.  I think Dave's rants are the best in the business!

Hello all
  My name is John, have been in the Electronics industry since leaving High School in 1981 (Jeez is it that long!).
Racal Electronics gave me my break and like them the rest is history.
 When I was a lad I loved taking things apart to see what was inside and .... nothing has changed. As a hobby I like to
collect and get working any old test gear I can scrounge, (love to spend a week at APEX!!!).
Also believe you can never have enough multimeters.

PS and yes I found Dave’s excellent blog while researching the Rigol scope.
The odd multimeter or 2 or 3 or 4...or........can't remember !.

Hey guys,

Nice to meet you all. I graduated in EE in Scotland, but have spent most my working life editing electronics magazines. I now work with Farnell/element14. My primary role is editing the comapny's Technology First journal, which you may have seen and working on our community site.

I've not practised electronics for a while, but I've got myself some PIC32 boards and a book and I'm going to try get back into it and hopefully keep you updated, or pester you with questions!

Ally

Hi all, Phil here.  Long time lurker on the forum and watcher of the blog.  I'm a 33yr old sysadmin and software guy (depending on the day) from the Research Triangle area of North Carolina, USA.  I have tinkered with electronics on and off since I was a kid.  My university education is in Avionics but I've enjoyed slogging my way through the IT cesspool...errr...field, for the past 14 years or so leaving electronics to be that thing I can do when I'm done with work for the day.

My name is Ray. I'm from Mesa, Arizona.

I am a professional IT guy, web developer and programmer and have a little electronics experience from when I was younger.

For some reason I feel like seriously getting into electronics engineering. I'm so used to thinking logic and programming that maybe its why electronics captures my interest so much. It naturally feels like the next best extension of knowledge I should be learning.

I have an electronics lab setup for the first time (just under $1000). Its really neat and I based all my purchases on recommendation from Dave's videos and other people in the forum.

I'm very excited to get started and learn the basics of how each component works and figure it out as I go.

I'm always up for helping or sharing ideas with anyone.

Hello, My name is Daniel, I study Electronics Engineering in Sweden.
My brother taught me to program in Amiga Basic when I was around 12, and I have been hooked on programming ever since.
After that I am self taught in Turbo Pascal and C. I have always been really fascinated by electronics but it was always like a mystery to me, programming was easier to experiment with. I learned x86 Assembler when I was like 18 I think, and I decided to try and make my own IRC client in Assembler for Windows. It worked but the server and join channel and nickname was hard-coded into the program. And it could only join one channel :)
Anyway, I worked for a while programming my own CMS systems for different small companies, Content Management Systems for their websites.
But I wanted to take on my interests in Electronics and decided to study engineering, and I think it's extremely fun :)

G'day Guys,
                RuddyCrazy is my alter ego with RE but on the net I'm known as Bryan1 (yes the ETO moderator).

Dave your blogs are nothing but bloody fantastic and when I finally get my RE charge controller project finished I should send you one to try  :D. nothing like constructive criticism.......

Anyway I do see that foul mouth pommie on here so whats the bet I get a hammering off that wanker  ::)

Had I known of the forum I would of joined yonks ago.....

Great work Dave  :P

Hello everyone!  Sorry I didn't read every post here, but I hope to meet some friends and hopefully help out.  I was introduced through the EEVBlog on youtube and Dave is the man  lol

I am getting into PIC programming with C and it is a hobby when it comes to this.  I work in the steel industry for programming PLCs and HMIs in South East Asia.

Greetings,
I'm Mitchell. I've been a drummer/musician for 35 years and I'm starting to get into the modification of microphones and preamps. As well as the general troubleshooting that comes along when you've amassed a large amount of audio/recording equipment over the years. I'm trying to better educate myself in electronics. I'm a mechanical guy and had 1 EE course in college, so I know enough about electricity to be mildly dangerous. I'm normally a quick study so hopefully that will change soon.

Cheers!
Mitchell
