Hello everyone. I'm a Systems Engineer by training, a Nuclear Engineer by training and experience and now I manage geniuses in the AI/ML realm. I've gotten to the point in my life that I would like to experiment on my own projects. Managing is different than doing, so I'll be starting at close to ground zero. Please forgive what may seem to be a lot of "dumb" questions!

That is so true. I have very little experience with these electronic things, but being a Team Lead for a couple of years in Website Development, I can very well relate to this.

Welcome to one of the best communities for Arduino and may I say Microcontrollers.

Welcome to the forum, please feel free to ask any question you might have!

"There are no dumb questions, only dumb answers"!?

I'm not sure I agree with that.

I used to live in an apartment building in Honolulu that, like most buildings in Hawaii, had no basement. Several times while I was waiting for the elevator on the main floor someone would walk in and ask "going up?"  Many times I was tempted to say "no, you'll need to take the next one", mostly because I was afraid that whatever they had might be contagious!

I considered that to be a very dumb question!

But I have never seen a dumb question on the forum, and I'm sure you'll find everyone here eager to help you with just about anything.

Except for elevators!

I frequently encountered automation customers who would start a discussion saying "this may be a dumb question but..."

My response was always "There are no dumb questions if you need to know.  That usually led to longer or detailed dialogs.  And many times the 'teacher' saw things from a viewpoint he had not considered previously.  B>)

How about being on the top floor and the person ask either "going down?" or "going up?"  Now that gets a real "Here's your sign!"
