And the Weekend Projects Winner Is…

Congratulations to Joseph, winner of the latest Weekend Projects giveaway. You get a Maker’s Notebook and a Mintronics: Survival Pack (above). The Mintronics pack includes many of the components that we’ve been working with over the past few months in Weekend Projects. And with the notebook, Joseph will be able to jot down his project ideas in the years ahead. It was a lot of fun reading through all of the stories our readers shared, and especially interesting to hear how influential radio was for so many makers in getting hooked on electronics!

When I was in grade school I took some basic electronics classes. One of my neighborhood friends and I use to take apart old TV’s and collect the parts. Great fun. A few years later I started building Heathkit kits. The first two kits I built was the powered breadboard and the bench top multimeter.

After many years of writing software I decided to get back into electronics as a way to improve my software development skills. What fun to combine software skills with electronics skills. Now I have been getting into developing software projects using micro-controllers to control external hardware devices.
