welcome

Welcome to Open Circuits, CodeThatThinks.

Thank you for your work on PCB Footprints and DIP. Thank you for making Open Circuits a better place. I hope you enjoy reading OpenCircuits and sharing your knowledge with us.

A few tips:

  • You can "sign" your contributions by typing four tildes "~~~~" at the end.
  • Be bold with your editing. If you add information that really belongs on some other page of this wiki (or on some other wiki entirely), or you accidentally delete some crucial stuff, it's fairly easy for anyone to fix it. Please feel free to revert or otherwise fix-up any of my edits that turn out to be erroneous or misguided or both.
  • Sometimes it is faster to fix my misguided edits and delete spam (and restore what the spammer may have deleted) by pressing the "undo" button on the page history "diff" page.
  • We are all volunteers here.

Please feel free to talk about your electronics experiences here.

Welcome. --DavidCary (talk) 11:54, 12 August 2014 (PDT)

Open Component Project

Hey, the Open Component Project sounds like a very helpful project. I wish you great success.

I hear that the KiCAD people are testing git. They hope a version control system will make it easier for people to pull the very latest version of the public Kicad libraries, and easier for people to contribute new and improved footprints and schematic symbols to those libraries. [1] [2] [3]

Would it make any sense to clone a copy of the KiCAD repository onto the OpenComponentProject.org server?

naming pages

Here on OpenCircuits, I hope that people talk about their electronic projects. They will inevitably use words or phrases that someone new to electronics won't understand. Also, when explaining what they meant by one specific phrase (such as "LED matrix" or "POV display"), they will likely use other words or phrases that someone new to electronics won't understand. I prefer using those exact words or phrases as the titles for wiki pages, as described at Community Wiki: Best Practices For Wiki Theory Building and Community Wiki: Theory Building. Even though those words or phrases are often *not* what people would consider a "proper" title for a book or article.

So I expect 2 kinds of pages here:

  • very specific pages about a project someone is working on, that hopefully get generalized enough that lots of people can use that documentation to build their own version of that thing (and several popular variations get documented on that page).
  • more general pages that explain what ideas and techniques and components people mean by certain words and phrases they use on other pages, both project pages and other general pages.

Do we need a page here at OpenCircuits with localized tips for naming (and renaming) pages here? --DavidCary (talk) 20:16, 25 November 2014 (PST)
