We wanted to make a quick post announcing a new SparkFun class - Solder Your Own Microcontroller. This class will take place at 6 PM on January 18th, 2012, and is a new addition to our line of beginner embedded electronics workshops designed to help teach attendees a bit about DIY electronics while also learning the skills of soldering.
In this class, you'll practice the beginner skill of PTH (plated through-hole) soldering while you create your very own Arduino-Compatible PTH Kit. This class is designed for the novice, but is also great if you know your way around a soldering iron and just want to brush up on your skills and/or learn some more advanced re-work techniques. As always, keep an eye on our class listings page for upcoming classes - hope to see you at one soon!
