Tonight 10pm ET – “Ask an Engineer” – Make: Electronics night!

Pt 2592-1
If you have the Make: Electronics book, or just thinking of getting a copy – tonight I will be assisting Ladyada (Limor Fried) with Adafruit’s weekly “Ask an engineer” LIVE video chat… Here are the details

Tonight, Saturday 2/20/2010 – 10pm ET – “Ask an Engineer” – our weekly LIVE video chat! What is “Ask an engineer”? From the electronics enthusiast to the professional community – “Ask an Engineer” has a little bit of everything for everyone. If you’re a beginner, or an seasoned engineer – stop in and see what we’re up to! We have demos of projects and products we’re working on, we answer you engineering and electronics questions and we have a trivia question + give away each week. This week we’ll go through some of chapters of “Make: Electronics by Charles Platt” The book is geared towards ultimate-beginners and teaches electronics starting from basic core of analog to some digital to microcontrollers. You’ll learn tools, prototyping soldering techniques, transistors, 555’s, etc. while completing useful projects. A nice and tidy intro! This book is a good accompaniment to learning microcontrollers/Arduino in that it fills the necessary electronics theory and background.

Chat starts at 10pm ET (Saturday night 10pm ET 2/20/2010) on the dot (here and here)…
