Parts wiki! – #openhwsummit

Pt 10387

One of the requests at the Open Hardware Summit was “A parts wiki” And we have one! Think of this as an expert system for picking parts… Almost everyone pretty much picks the same part for a purpose. With lots of practice, you can easily figure out what the ‘most common’ part is but it’s always good to get some help along the way!

  1. I {heart} the adafruit parts wiki. When it’s 4am and I’m trying to finish up and online order, and I need a jellybaen part number, the wiki has saved my hide a few times.

  2. Wow, that’s NEAT! So we already have a place to start pile things together! Great work! 😉

  3. You are awesome! Thanks for all the effort!

  4. The parts wiki really helped get me moving from the kit stage to building some of my own stuff from scratch. Trying to figure out what parts to order had been holding me back.

    The parts wiki has been one of the best kept secrets. Not that it should be secret.

    So shouldn’t it be linked more prominently from the adafruit and ladyada sites?

    Thanks,
