Todd Michael Bailey – Embedded Systems Contractor at Narrat1ve
How did you get into electronics/ engineering and when did you start?
Late! I took my first electronics class my junior year in college. I was an English major, and took on a whim. It was amazing – I learned to use a scope and read Horowitz and hill for the first time. After school I used my fancy English degree to get a job in a stereo repair shop, built a tube amp, and taught myself assembly language (6502 I think). I feel like I played catch up through the decades of electronics, building triode circuits, then stuff with logic gates, then 8-bit micros… Earlier this year I designed a little dev board for testing ARM Cortex M3 processors, so I’m hoping I’m almost caught up to the current era.
