Happy New Year!

The turn of a year is an opportunity to reflect (look back) and plan (look forward).

2022 was another challenging year in many respects, and 2023 will be no less challenging.

However, the common ground I appreciate in the diverse and worldwide Maker community is our focus on learning, sharing, and helping each other and our belief that life can be better through the intelligent application of technology.

On a personal note, work and play are often intertwined. I love to tinker with technology, learn by doing, document and publish my work, and interact with you on the Makers Club or the Blog comments.

I feel privileged to be a member of this community and to be able to merge work with play for all these years (since 2013!!!).

Thank you to each of you for your support and for allowing me to join you in your technology exploration adventures!

Latest course updates

In 2022, we updated many of our courses. Last week we published updates to “Arduino IoT Cloud – Getting Started” and “Oscilloscopes for Beginners“. In early December, we also published an update to “Node-RED and ESP32 Project“.

Earlier in 2022, we updated Arduino Step by Step Getting Started, Kicad Like a Pro 3e, Raspberry Pi Full Stack, ESP32 for Busy People, MicroPython with the ESP32, and Raspberry Pi Bench Computer.

We also published a sequel to Raspberry Pi Full Stack: Raspberry Pi Full Stack Upgrade Project.

2022 was a busy year, as usual.
