Where Should I Start?


We recommend filling out your profile and uploading/changing your avatar first so your fellow members can learn more about you and your interests.  You can access your profile by clicking on your name at the top of the screen and selecting the options from the drop down menu.  By completing these two tasks you'll earn your first badge, 500 points and move up to a level 2!  (For more help on how to earn this badge click see here)


After you've filled out your profile, we recommend "Following" the areas of the Community (e.g. Raspberry Pi) that interest you most, or even the users who create the content that grabs your attention. You can also add fellow members as contacts on the Community by hovering over their username and selecting the option "Add as Contact." You can also find any member of the element14 Community team here.


Finally, make sure to introduce yourself to the other members by posting here; and take a minute to review the Participation Guidelines so you'll fit right in!
