I am a relative beginner to electronics but am learning as I go. I had actually been interested many years back but we did not have the internet back then, so its certainly much easier this time round.
What rekindled my interest was my recent venture into the land of Arduino, which I find fascinating. This has in turn led me to seek to learn more about devices such as stepper motors, servos and so on which the Arduino can control. These devices however require more power than an Arduino can supply and so I am now exploring power supplies, and by extension, electronics.
So I have come full circle except that I can now more easily get answers to my questions and I can afford a little more kit :-).
