 +====Event Description====
 +
 +Beginners often prototype their electronic circuits on solderless breadboards,​ but in practice they are the work of the devil. The invisibly unreliable contacts, “parasitic” wire inductance, and wires poked in the wrong hole mean that when (not if) a circuit doesn'​t work as expected, you are left guessing whether the problem is in the circuit'​s design or just a breadboard problem. That's all unnecessarily confusing and discouraging.
 +
 +Fortunately experienced amateurs and professionals know easy, fast and cheap ways to make decent prototype circuits with both conventional through-hole components and modern SMD components. With care, these prototypes can be both high-performance and robust enough that it isn't necessary to replace them with a pukka PCB.
 +
 +This skillshare will discuss and illustrate construction techniques with names like “dead bug”, “live bug”, “manhattan”,​ “pittsburgh”. It will introduce how to structure prototypes'​ construction,​ and show some commercial and homebrew components and techniques that make life easier.
 +
 +Attendees should have soldered electronic circuits, and know which end of a soldering iron is hot.
