Hello everyone, my name is Jim. I'm teaching myself electronics and programming for the arduino because I have several projects to build. I'm a machinist and aviation mechanic by trade, so designing and building mechanical stuff is the easy part for me. I found dronebotworkshop and it has been a great help in keeping me inspired. It's been a challenge but I'm getting motors turning and LEDs flashing. 

Glad to be here and hope I can contribute.

Jim

@flashbang Hi Jim, I am a retired professional programmer, but I am interested in making some mechanical stuff so I am teaching myself to be a machinist and aviation mechanic. I am looking forward to your story.

First computer 1959. Retired from my own computer company 2004.
Hardware - Expert in 1401, and 360, fairly knowledge in PC plus numerous MPU's and MCU's
Major Languages - Machine language, 360 Macro Assembler, Intel Assembler, PL/I and PL1, Pascal, Basic, C plus numerous job control and scripting languages.
My personal scorecard is now 1 PC hardware fix (circa 1982), 1 open source fix (at age 82), and 2 zero day bugs in a major OS.
