Electronics/robotics walk through website
« on: October 13, 2011, 03:26:23 PM »
Hello all,

(Originally posted this at All About Circuits, sorry if you've seen it there already!)

I was recently reading a borrowed copy of H&Hs Art of Electronics, and realised that the most useful and interesting parts were their example designs, where they walk through designing a circuit module step by step, explaining component choices, etc. Similar posts on forums have been very useful to me before, but I rarely see tutorials based around this format.

I am thinking of writing a little walk through-writing web app as part of my website. It would essentially be a database of small, concise walk throughs that demonstrate the thought processes behind a particular design (not only restricted to electronics, either).

I think this has a serious advantage over traditional instruction writing websites as it focuses on the tought patterns involved, and should be adaptable to most scenarios if well written.

If I did, would anyone here be likely to use it/help contribute walk throughs? I am nowhere near experienced enough with electronics to offer much advice! (I'll be writing walk throughs in other Categories)

Cheers,
Barnaby

I'd love to help, but i cannot promise you any time limits ,cause i just got really busy with my first job..... i think it would be a good idea to share the idea here, so that more people can contribute, and perhaps you can compile it all up in one place...
'crazy' is the new hype! =)

Cheers, no problem. It'll be a while until I've got the back end ready enough for people to start submitting walkthroughs, but any opinions on the UI would be great:

Currently just dummy content, but that's the layout I've got planned.

Cheers,
