Ever wondered how hardware is made, or curious about making your own?

We share our experiences manufacturing a programmable gamepad for use in IoT/MicroPython workshops.

We will cover the entire production process, including:

  • Designing the PCB (Printed Circuit Board)
  • Choosing microcontroller and parts
  • Finding, ordering and assembling components
  • Pulling together firmware, drivers and software

Mistakes were indeed made along the way. Let's turn them into valuable lessons!
