Arduino

This popular development board is great for beginners and advanced users alike. It comes in a variety of flavors and is extensible with "shields" for adding special functionality. Find tutorials here to learn how to do cool stuff using the Arduino platform.

Articles

Articles are neat!

BLE

Concepts

These are the various concepts that people may need to know while learning a technology tutorial and could be required to complete a ‘hookup’ tutorial. Concepts are most often a general building block that may be built upon other concepts. Concepts can generally be learned without physical objects but are reinforced with a hookup tutorial.

DMX

Electrical Engineering

These tutorials help form some of the fundamentals you would learn in an Electrical Engineering course of study.

E-Textiles

Also known as wearables, this is the world of electronics sewn right into your clothes! Find tutorials here that introduce the basics of machine-washable boards and conductive thread, as well as projects to get you inspired.

GPS

Hookup

This type of tutorial shows people how to get a specific product hooked up and working.

I2C

LilyPad

<center><a href="http://sparkfun.com/LilyPad"><img src="https://sparkfuneducation.com/img/education/lilypad/lilypad-logo.png"></a></center> The [LilyPad system](http://sparkfun.com/LilyPad) is a set of sewable electronic pieces designed to help you build soft, sewable, interactive e-textile (electronic textile) projects. Using LilyPad pieces is a great way to experiment with electronics through the lens of crafting or fiber arts. Each LilyPad piece has large conductive sew tabs for easy sewing and a rounded shape so as not to snag fabric or cut thread. To get started, check out the article on [Getting Started with LilyPad](https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/getting-started-with-lilypad) or tutorials tagged with LilyPad for project ideas!

phant

<div class="well"><header><h3>Phant is No Longer in Operation</h3></header> Unfortunately Phant, our data-streaming service, is no longer in service. The system has reached capacity and, like a less-adventurous Cassini, has plunged conclusively into a fiery and permanent retirement. There are several other maker-friendly, data-streaming services and/or IoT platforms available as alternatives. The three we recommend are Blynk, ThingSpeak, and Cayenne. You can read our <a href="https://www.sparkfun.com/news/2413">blog post on the topic</a> for an overview and helpful links for each platform.

Single Board Computer

Need more brains for your project? There are several different kinds of Single Board Computers today that will give you all of the power of a modern computer on a small board with lots of inputs and outputs.

Skill

These are the various skills that people may need to know while learning a technology tutorial and could be required to complete a ‘hookup’ tutorial. Skills are most often learned by doing a physical action or using a physical thing.

Technology

These are general tutorials covering a type of technology. How does the technology work? Why might I need it? What do I need to look out for when using it?
