    Hi all,

    Are there any Youtube channels that teach Electronic in a practical way , like starting from Interfacing Microcontroller to devices , to designing an FPGA..

    If so, please tell me!

    Thanks!

    There's a lot of junk on YouTube. Some is just wrong. Some will bore you to death because they take forever to make their point.

    I cringe whenever I see one by a Neanderthal (hairy) or a nail bitter.

    Some of the "best" I've seen seem to be class lectures from East Indian instructors. But I've only looked at digital subjects.

    It appears that many of these YouTube "experts" have figured out how to monitize YouTube and want your eyeballs as long as possible.

    There are a couple of videos on crimping Dupont connectors like that. It is not that complicated of a process but people will really drag it out.
    Dirty nails are the worst. It is not someones fault if they have hairy fingers but they can certainly clean their nails.

    The accents are often horrible and makes it tedious an an effort to listen. There are a set of Draftsight videos like that I am trying to muddle through. I don't think he is Indian but still difficult to listen. And he talks and moves do fast!

    I can understand him just fine, but then, I worked with Indians for years.

    As I have but I still have trouble. Then again I worked with two that could not understand one another's English, they did not speak the same native language. I could understand the both of them and they both could understand me so I had to translate English to English. ;)

    I had lived overseas, in Germany, before going to college, so I was used to accents. In college, I often had to translate foreign students questions from English the prof could not understand to English that s/he could understand.

    Actually i want to learn some EDA tools like Allegro, OrCAD schematics. Are there any full fledged free courses, anywhere on the internet. Youtube doesn't have a specific structured course.

    Why don't you do your own search? Seriously, you waste time because you will end searching anyway.

    Useless thread this.

    If starting from scratch, look at the Nigel Goodwin Tutorials.

    Look up the EEVBlog channel by Dave Jones on YouTube. He has some great stuff.

    I cant recommend Dave Jones for those who are new to electronics since he is far too advanced and does not go into the basics. I love the guy but I think he is more suited for seasoned engineers or at least those who are already designing their own projects and interested in commercial grade stuff.

    I think Jones takes far too long to get to the point. Plus he has a seriously annoying voice.
