New to the forum and I plan on expanding my knowledge in electronics, especially soldering.

I'm Jacob and I enjoy interacting on forums to gain wisdom in different areas so I figured this would be a good forum for me getting into micro soldering and possible other electrical uses later on.

Currently my knowledge with electronics is very limited. I've been in charge of programming a robot for a high school competition, I've soldered headphone wires back to the speaker, soldered a few wires to other wires and surface contacts, all the general wire solder to contacts that come with varies hobbies (connectors were standard deans and xt-60), and changed a few ballists in light fixtures.

My current reason for joining is that I'm about to go to college (fall of 2017) and I have been interested in different electrical careers. I've also ran into a dilemma of having to microsolder a charging harness for my iPad Air for it to work again.

Thanks for the forum, which seems active, and I hope to learn my way around the forum shortly.

I've updated the MS to Mississippi. Sorry for the confusion, I was glad to find the 'useful websites' thread for forums and purchasing products.
I might be purchasing something from adafruit if there is no objection from friends and a quick forum post.
What all electronics fields do you interact with?

Welcome to EP. The answer to your last sentence would be soup to nuts with the exception of OU electronics, physics.
