Note : This course is designed for electronics enthusiast and also for the advanced audience, please check course content before subscribing to this course. I can assure you, you will never regret spending your valuable money on this course.
This course teaches you following things
1. How to design custom hardware for an application.
2. How to do Programming.
3. PCB designing using Eagle software.
4. Internet of Things (IOT) based applications.
5. Protocol decoding using logic analyzer.
I created this course because I believe that, its important how much knowledge you have but even more important thing is at what age you have it. Normally it takes time to develop skills in hardware and in this course I am sharing my experience and giving you a right approach to develop your skills in both hardware designing and programming. Which will help you to avoid mistakes and gain more knowledge in less time.
I remember one quote that I want to share with you.
"Learn from other people's mistakes.
Life is too short to make them all yourself"
- Sam Levenson
