Recently, I have been doing all of my hobby PCB design in KiCad. Coming from Eagle, I have been pretty impressed with the general usability of KiCad. Some things I feel that Eagle does better, and some things KiCad does better. The Link posted after the break is to a new, very extensive video tutorial series that Chris Gammell has graciously posted. Continue reading Chris Gammell Posts Extensive KiCad Tutorial Video Series
Only about 3 years ago I started listening to pod-casts. I typically listen to them on my way to work, and I have learned a lot from them. So far, many of the podcast episodes have been just incredibly interesting. Recently, I have come across the Making Embedded Systems Podcast by Elecia and Christopher White. I have only listened to a few of the episodes, but all of the episodes have been very informative, and well produced. I look forward to listening to the rest of the episodes, and I thought I’d go ahead and share it with you. Below is a link to the podcast:
Also, the image above is a link to her book. I just bought it, but I haven’t read it, so I am not yet recommending it, but, from the table of contents (the most important part of the book), it looks like it will be a very interesting read.
This seems like the perfect First Post for an embedded systems blog.
I intend to use this blog to pass on whatever new thing I’ve learned. Whether it is something someone else did that I thought was interesting, a useful product, something I was curious about, and feel comfortable explaining, or a tutorial to help others get from point A to point B faster than I was able to. I look forward to working with new friends who share the same excitement that I have for embedded systems.
