As all our kits need to be soldered together, we have been asked a number of times about soldering education and information.
We usually point people to the excellent 'Soldering is Easy' comic produced by Mitch Altman, Andie Nordgren and Jeff Keyzer. This is a really great comic-book style introduction to basic soldering techniques.
This guide is visual, easy to understand and open-source so can be spread and shared with everyone.
There is a short guide available here:
And a more in depth guide here:
We hope to include this guide with all of our kits in the future, but hopefully these links will help you get started in your journey into electronics!
