I at one time was a person who didnt know squat about programming these things, with little ones screaming in my ear every 2 seconds ... but ya know what? a couple months later I started to grasp, and now a few years later I am pretty durn decent with the thing. (hell showing off my arduino projects just landed me a decent paying job as a lab technician at an electronics firm after a long stint of unemployment)
Good for you. You get yourself notice. In my case, I am also an unemployed electronics technician - very rusty mind you ( Bench Tech - 1998 - Cool job, - last job 1999 - Assembler -
) , work as a school bus driver - most 20 pass, sometime 72 pass - hopefully, doing this job for the past 8 years. Not well pay, but it pay the bills, the foods and the electronics stuffs for my projects. On the plus side, no boss and no employee to worry about unless you do something wrong...
My comment about the video : LOL
I know, sometime, it is not easy to learn something new. It the steep learning curve everyone have to go throught. You need to find a passion for it, doing small experiments / exercises , a small step at a time until you have a proper understanding. Sometime a hobby is a way to escape / unwind from the daily routine and also a way to spend time with the kids - if they are interested with technology and to see how things work.
