For somebody with no experience handling hardware, electronics can be intimidating.

But if you do want to play around with it as a hobby and have a little fun making things from scratch, learning basic electronics will help you go a long way.

Erika Heidi is a technical writer at DigitalOcean who’s written a 4 part series as a crash course on electronics.

It’s a very well written, illustrated guide for someone who’d like to play around with Arduino or any other electronic prototyping platform.
