The Ultimate Shortcut to
Learn Electronics and Programming
with Open Source Hardware and Software

You want to create more Electronics projects, right?

"I love building electronics projects, but I am afraid that programming and electronics is too difficult for me."

"I build projects by myself and sometimes I get stuck, unfortunately I don't have anyone to ask questions along the way."

"When I want to create a new project, I have to spend countless hours looking for the right instructions online."

"Building electronics projects is too expensive..."

"I want to get into the electronics and programming hobby, but I don't know where to start..."

"I am too young or too old to learn this stuff..."

Hey There,

I’m Rui Santos, founder of the Random Nerd Tutorials blog and author of BeagleBone For Dummies.

Since 2013 I’ve created dozens of free tutorials for the Random Nerd Tutorials blog.

Feel free to read them and see if you like my hands-on approach to learn electronics with step-by-step instructions that anyone can follow.

Rui Santos,

Learning a new skill can be quite intimidating, whether it’s using a new development board or learning a new programming language.

With the RNT Lab you’ll be able to follow easy step-by-step instructions to acquire new skills and create awesome projects.

If you get stuck, me and other members will help you get un-stuck. So, you can get back to build your project.

The components required to complete our courses are fairly inexpensive and you probably already have most of them laying around.

We have students from all ages that successfully completed my tutorials, so you shouldn’t fear to come along and try to build your own circuits and write your programs.

I think I'm a bit younger/older to learn this stuff +

People from all ages have been able to follow my tutorials and made awesome stuff. So, I believe that anyone can follow the instructions provided. If you get stuck, you have the Forum to ask any questions.

Will the components to complete the project be too expensive? +

No. All the components to complete the courses can be purchased for around $50 to $100. And you probably already have most of the components laying around. The software used throughout the courses is FREE.

I'm already devoting a lot of my spare time to learning and side projects. Will I be able to fit this course in? +

One of my goals in creating this platform was to keep my courses lean and mean. This means that you don’t need to spend hours trying to understand my instructions.

The courses inside the Lab contain only the information that you need. They were created in a step-by-step approach with clear instructions that anyone can follow.

Which courses will be released after the Raspberry Pi course? +

After the Raspberry Pi course is completed, I'll be creating a course for the mobile app that easily integrates with the ESP8266 and Arduino boards.

I also plan to create a robotics course and how to build an android app using the MIT app inventor that interacts with the Arduino via bluetooth.

There is so much information out there… Why should I pay for this? +

95% of my content is free and it will always be. I believe that we should share our knowledge with others. But 5% of my content is premium, because I know some of you want something extra.

You might want to sign up for more in depth courses or you are interested in personalized support.
