Soldering for Beginners

21 September 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Learn to solder! If you’re interested in getting started working on electronics in the hackerspace, but not sure how to do so safely, this training session is for you. This two-hour-long session covers the basics of how to use soldering irons safely, proper ventilation, and soldering and desoldering techniques. You’ll have a chance to practice your new skills under the guidance of the instructor.

 

About the instructor:

My name is Nicky Rosenberg and I am looking forward to being your instructor for an electronics soldering workshop.

The soldering workshop is the first in a series I plan to teach which will provide the necessary skills to take your own ideas to the next level to design, build and create electronic circuits, computers, programming, robotics and even art creations.

 

I am an entrepreneur and inventor. My educational background is in Electronic Engineering (BSC) and I spent many years developing electronic circuits and prototyping. I like not only designing, but mostly hands-on projects which integrate electronics, mechanics and other fields.

I’ve taught Computer Communication in College, had an IT company for 5 years, and developed electronics projects since I was in high school, even built my own computer when it was too expensive for me to buy one.  

You might say it has been, and still is, my hobby for a very long time.

Some people play the piano, some play a sport, and I enjoy learning and developing new electronic products.

On a personal note, some of my hobbies include mountain biking, camping and music.

I am looking forward to the experience and challenge of teaching and learning with you.

Let’s work together to ensure a positive outcome and have fun.
