So you didn't get the shipping crate full of electronics parts you wanted for Christmas.  Not to fret, because in this workshop we're going to be giving you hands on practice with several desoldering techniques.

Often desoldering something correctly takes more skill than soldering it in the first place.  But like all skills it's something that requires practice.

Have you ever had a video that you just can't edit... this was one of those. So, instead I'm just going to blog about the construction process. 3 months without a post is too long.

Ever wonder how the internet works? This class will give you a quick introduction to the networks around you: from the Internet, to your office network, to your home network. We will pull back the hood and show you the basics of the technologies that enable the Internet to work. Instructor is Brian Dirk.

Additionally, you will make a functioning 10-foot network cable to take home. 

This class will cover:  

• Basic network setup and configuration (AKA a "topology")

• Routing and IP Addressing
