mmwa: the arduino programming

The “MMwA: The Arduino Programming” is where I teach everything about the Arduino programming! I’ll teach how to write your own code, how I have written my codes, and how you can understand other people’s codes.

This will take your maker skills to the next level. It will allow you to create anything that comes to your mind. I’ll teach you the Arduino programming language while I focus everything on making music!

kicad pcb design

The โ€œKicad PCB Designโ€ is a 100% online course that will teach you how to design and manufacture your own Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs).ย 

During the course we will design one PCB from scratch, showing the whole process until fabrication.ย 

This course will allow you to make your electronics products faster, more reliable and look super professional!
