For a long time I was looking for a company that I could refer my readers to for buying electronics. There are many companies out there.
But there was one company that I felt especially drawn towards…
So recently I started an affiliate partnership with the good people at Makershed. They offer lots of cool kits, tools and components that make it easy for beginners to build cool stuff.
Here are some of the stuff they offer:
A popular platform for DIY projects, an Arduino microcontroller is the “brains” of literally thousands of projects created by Makers worldwide! Create projects of different complexities— the open source Arduino platform will grow with you as you develop skills.

A powerful, credit card-sized, Linux-based computer that plugs into a TV or video display and a computer keyboard, Raspberry Pi provides a low-cost, easy-to-program development platform for DIY hobbyists and maker pros alike. The Pi was built for education, making it perfect for beginners and schools.
