Tech author Jim Kelly (who’s written a stack of books on Lego Mindstorms) has decided to do all of the 35 experiments in Make: Electronics and to document the entire process. This is likely to be immensely helpful to others who are using the book as a self-taught course in electronics. He’s done the first three experiments so far, and adding new content every day. If you’re studying the book and doing the projects, you should follow along. And thanks so much for doing this, Jim! What a great service to the maker community.
