Robert Feranec, founder of Fedevel Education & Academy, Engineer, and hardware design instructor, asked me “How to Learn Electronics and Programming”.

So, we had a very interesting and enjoyable discussion, which Robert recorded, edited, and published on his YouTube channel (or play in this page below).

  • 20:16 Online courses and how to choose the one that is right for you.
  • 27:28 What to learn after Arduino.
  • 29:27 Getting into ESP32 and IoT.
  • 42:04 MicroPython, a modern language for microcontrollers.
  • 48:15 Next step with the Raspberry Pi.
