If you are into building things, these are the best of times. We now have low cost, and easily accessible technologies such as 3D Printing, 3D Scanning, Laser Cutting, Desktop 3D CNC, etc. The "glue" that binds everything together and makes everything exciting is Electronics. Electronics hardware has gotten so cheap that you can now buy a computer the size of half a credit card that can run a full Linux Operating System and thus capable of running most of your Desktop Applications, and cost as little as $5 (Raspberry Pi Zero). These technological advances are not been used by the "average" maker because of how the "average" maker interacts with electronics. In this class, you will learn the skills needed to take advantage of this revolution for fun and/or profit.
