Hi Guys,
Being a product designer, one of the biggest limitations is to look for the correct PCB to run your designs.

This is not a problem if you know how to make your own PCBs.

Follow these detailed tutorials on how to design your own PCBs and custom Shields for your products.

Hi Coding,

I feel my videos will help many people in different fields. I can see you removed it from other topics, but I wanted to share with Robotics, Microprocessors, Motors, Introductory videos.

Do you feel that these people will all come to this forum to see these videos?

I am a newbie poster to please help me understand how to reach all different topics from here?

Thanks
HitRatio

Cross posting is against the rules of this forum:
http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=148850
Please take the time to read them.

Everyone who posts here would like as many people as possible to see it. Imagine the chaos if the hundreds of thousands of posts on this forum were all repeated in every single forum section that had the slightest relevance. In the future, please pick the single best forum section for your topic and post only there. The "Exhibition/Gallery" section of this thread is clearly the most appropriate.

You're 12 years old and you know less about professional design than what you don't know. Maybe step it back a bit.

Your sketch can sense ongoing process events in time.
Your sketch can make events to control it over time.

Hi GoForSmoke,
Thank you for your advice. My dad is an engineer and helps me with these videos and to learn things. I would appreciate it if you can share some specific feedback about what you didn't like about my videos. It will help me learn a few things. What do you want me to step back? Did I say something wrong in the videos?

I am doing this for learning and any help and feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks

I have limited 4G, haven't watched your videos but I have read your posts.

It's good that your father teaches you professional things. I learned a lot from mine.

Hiya Hit,

I'm not GfS by a long shot, but I too think you should slow down, particularly on the marketing of your website aspect. This is not the place to build a large You Tube audience. A single thread should be all it takes to win any viewers that are available. But here's a secret - many of us are old, and prefer the written word and clear diagrams. I know I need to be extremely motivated to watch an instructional video!

Now you DO have a huge target audience. Some are here, and will spread the word, but others live in the other sites, such as Facebook and Instructables. Go seek them all out, and soon you'll be the King of Circuits.

Good luck again!
What, I need to say something else too?

HitRatio

Hi Chris,

Thank you for your suggestions. I played a lot with Arduino for a long time. I think Arduino helped me fall in love with Electronics. I did feel that there were many concepts that were too hard to understand, but once I understood it, I realised I could make it easy for others to understand.

I used to read a lot of posts on these forums, but hadn't posted anything. Recently, I decided to make lots of tutorial videos so I can share things I know. It may help other kids like me see things easily. I know a lot of kids start their electronics journey on Arduino.

My goal is not to market any youtube channel, but to just share what I know. (Even if I am just 12)

In the future, I will reduce my posts here and just drop a note when I post a new video.

All you people are very helpful, and I have learned a lot from you. I don't mean to annoy anyone here.

Thanks
HitRatio

Good for you with working with your dad!

If you want to direct these videos to a younger audience, remember not everyone has access to the tools you are using.
Older audiences may not not be too open to take direction from a younger person, unfortunately that can be a problem. :(
Maybe slow down and present your topics at a lower level (I cannot believe I am saying this to a 12 year old).
Use a toolset that kids can access.
A simple but useful project captures your audience's attention and is far better than some abstract or complicated thing that is too far above their starting out capabilities.

Keep on with your education (in all areas), you will be very successful and remember to be a kid for a few more years.

BTW, always make your links clickable.

No technical PMs.

If you need clarification, ask for help.

I also generally prefer written tutorials to videos because it allows me to scan/search for the exact information I need very quickly. It is also much more search engine-friendly. The exception is something like a soldering tutorial where video really does help. One thing I really like is when video creators add a "table of contents" to the description of longer videos with links to jump to the various sections. Here's an example of a video with a nice "table of contents":

The younger generation seems to really like video. I don't really understand it, but maybe that's just because I'm old (at least relative to HitRatio). Everyone has their own way of learning and I think it's great if HitRatio's videos can help people learn electronics.

Maybe they will let you use Arduino in science labs. We had nothing like it in my school time, oscilloscope and slide rules.

Push hard on your math, spend extra time and read ahead in your book so if you have a question you will know to get an answer in class. Memorize squares out to 20 and refresh that, the Pythagorean relationship pops up a lot and it's good to know that a triangle with sides 12, 13, and 5 will be square on the 12-5 corner. Whole number Pythagorean solutions pop up even on the SAT so start getting ready now. Knowing cubes is not as useful but worth it out to 10. If you know something when you see it, you just beat everyone who has to look it up including coulda-been-you. There's nature and then there's nurture, you are entering your peak nurture time to dial up your own potential just don't get overconfident and always be looking to learn.

What I wish I had learned is Vedic Math from India. It can save time on tests and doing homework, break dumb reliance on a calculator, let you multiply 2 multidigit numbers as fast as writing the answer down if you're really sharp. Had I known that I would have scored higher on my SAT. I did watch a couple of intros and turned into algebra it works, 85 x 31 = (8B + 5A)(3B + 1A) where A=1 and B=10. The Vedic method lets you do small steps in your head and leave a trail of digits that's the answer. It's worth learning if you're not a savant though you may want to save time for a new hobby of memorizing primes.

Larry / Pert / GoForSmoke,

Thank you all for your detailed feedback.

--- remember not everyone has access to the tools you are using.

Unfortunately, I only have access to my Dad's software and hardware lab. I will need to continue using whatever he uses for the videos. However, I am trying to make the videos vey simple so anyone can follow it with other tools.

--- and remember to be a kid for a few more years.

Electronics is fun for me. I also play a lot of video games like Fortnite... and Soccer and Basketball at school. However, I get to unlock my video game time with project time with my Dad in the week.

--- The younger generation seems to really like video. I don't really understand it, but maybe that's just because I'm old

I find it faster to keep recording what I am doing. If I had to write a tutorial for all the steps, I think it would take me very long and many many pages.

--- One thing I really like is when video creators add a "table of contents"

That's a great idea. I will learn how to do this and add it to my videos.


--- Push hard on your math

I am still studying basic Math at school. I was looking at the inverse kinematics equations for the robot hand, and most of it looked very strange. Actually, I find concepts of Artificial Intelligence much simpler to understand. My dad said that we will play with AI for programming the robot arm. AI seems to have a lot less math. I still need to start Trigonometry at school next year, so it looks like I need to find other ways to program the robot.

Thanks
