  1. A really excellent beginners guide. As someone who’s fooling around with Arduino /Maple Leaf Mini with absolutely no electrical engineering or electronics education this was just what I needed. So many things, I didn’t know or understand:
    – Why put caps on the power rails – power smoothing I am guessing.
    – Exactly what size single core wire was required – now I know!
    – And the fritzing/planner – pure genius! Wish I’d known about that sooner.
