Hi folks,
I'm a software engineer, specialised in Geographic Information Systems, so please bear with my newbie speak when it comes to electronics.
I joined this forum to re-kindle my interest in electronics from high school and first year uni (back in 88).
I've dabbled in beginner, hobbyist level projects and know just enough not to fry anything too seriously.

I have a few ideas for projects I'd like to have a crack at.
These mainly revolve around my kids.
I want to introduce them to the world of electronics and hope to make a few simple projects to assist my son.
He has auditory processing issues for which I thought some of the RF projects I've played with would help.
I'd also like to get into robotics for when he is old enough.

Looking forward to learning from you all and hope that i can eventually assist others like me.

Cheers!
Darren.

People on this site LOVE to hear about new projects people are working on, and they've
got some good advice when it's needed.
It'll be good to hear from you when software advice is needed by others also.

RF and robotics are both awesome ideas. I would be more than willing to help out when I can but I too only know enough to not fry thing too badly. and my soldering is worse than that. I can let you know however EVERY stumbling block I have come accross, someone on this forum has helped me with. you can put that down to the beginner circuits I am trying or the wealth of experience shown by the members.

Welcome, have fun, and if you know anything bout coding I might be able to get some info back of you

Cool. I worked in GIS for a good number of years before I switched over to bioinformatics.

<----- Guess where I am.
