Electronics Lessons For Beginners


Hackaday reader [grenadier] wrote in to share a series of tutorials he is working on, where he discusses the basics of electricity and electronics. The first lesson titled, What is Electricity?” has been wrapped up, and is available for free on his site.

For any of our regular readers, the lesson will seem pretty basic (and likely full of things to nitpick). However, we imagine his lessons would be quite helpful to anyone looking to expand their electronics know-how.

Now don’t get us wrong, we love the series of electronics tutorials that Jeri has been periodically releasing, but we think there’s plenty of room on the Internet for other willing teachers as well. If his first lesson is any indicator, his tutorials will be easy to understand, sprinkled with a little bit of humor, and chock full of fun videos that demonstrate the subject at hand.

Take a quick look his way if you get a chance – you or someone you know might find his tutorials and reference guides insightful.

  1. omg, can’t believe I’m saying this… ‘first!’

    But seriously tutorials are what laymen like me need… bring em’ on (I might stand a better chance now than when I did physics at Alevel!)

  2. I disagree. The Internet is filled with beginner tutorials on every possible subject imaginable. If people would dedicate their time to covering new things or gaps rather than the same re-hashed set of things before they burn out on it and move on, there would be a much higher signal to noise ratio.

    This goes for electronics, programming, game development, whatever popular technical topic you can think of.

  3. Good stuff, very clear and well written!

    Plus it’s now stuck in my head that A represents the unit Assloads instead of Amperes (and mA = milli-assloads, etc.) Heh.
