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!
