I'm going through basics right now and during instances where I may use switches or potentiometers, I just end up with the item sitting horizontally on my table, connected by wires. In other words these types of items are not properly positioned or in place for their designed purpose. I don't have a permanent location for the switches/potentiometers yet but I want a better prototyping process.
Is there an alternative to the scenario I'm describing? An alternative to having some of these switches and potentiometers awkwardly connected by wire and sitting on the table?
