 There was a skillshare introducing the better methods in February 2018. Due to the size, the presentation slides are split into three files: {{:skillshare:solderlessBreadboards01-03.pdf|avoiding solderless breadboards 1 of 3}}, {{:skillshare:solderlessBreadboards02-03.pdf|avoiding solderless breadboards 2 of 3}}, {{:skillshare:solderlessBreadboards03-03.pdf|avoiding solderless breadboards 3 of 3}}. Those files have the slides in the first half, and the slides plus notes in the second half. There was a skillshare introducing the better methods in February 2018.
