Welcome to E-14. It is always a challenge to get started in a new place. E-14 is full of great people who are eager to share and learn about electronics and all the related sciences. As you choose the areas of interest to yourself your activity stream will fill with questions, blogs and discussions from those content areas. Your own questions and answers will earn points and you will make friends from all over the world. I look forward to learning more about you as time goes by. If you click on peoples names you will go to their profiles which will tell you more about them and their interests.
Letting us know you are a member is a good first step.
Just follow instructions and you will get a feel for how the site operates, I am sure that Nicole will get around to contacting you when she gets in on Monday.
Meanwhile, poke around, look at the groups and think about what you want to follow.
When in doubt, ask a question, there are many of us here who can help.
Good morning from the UK!
I'm a brand new member here at Element 14 and I am wondering if we have somewhere new members can introduce themselves and find out a bit more about element14? I had a look around the website but didn't see anything immediately obvious. I figured I'd click the "Start Discussion" button and just ask you guys. It seems there's an award for an answer anyway!
Anyway, I've just taken up a job as an Electrical/Electronic Engineering Lecturer in the lovely Garden of England (Kent for the philistines) so that's my simple motivation for exploring the web for communities like element14. I'm very much looking forward to the years of fun and Making ahead
(I've just been told by this page that i have to select a group to post in so I'm trying 'member'... maybe this is the place?
