Surely many of you already know the Instructables repository. Others, if you are newbies or have just arrived, it will still be strange to you, but it is something that will change in a short time.
Instructables is a web repository where users and non-users will find hundreds of thousands of free gadget building projects, artifacts or electronic projects, all based on the DIY philosophy and Free Hardware. But, Instructables has taken a step forward and is now more than just a repository for free projects.
Instructables offers knowledge for the newest before building the project
Instructables has recently updated its website and its services, offering now classes and instructions for the newest. Thus, if we want to do a project such as creating a retro game console and we do not know anything about Raspberry Pi, in Instructables we will find the basics to learn how to use Raspberry Pi and then advance in the construction of such a project.
These classes they are free and online although there are also courses that are paid, although a fairly low payment. But the most interesting thing is that Instructables has courses for everyone, not only Free Hardware but also courses on tools, photography, robots, laser cutting, etc ... And even some tutorials on how to cook or knit.
Thus, with this, the Instructables repository is ahead of other free project repositories, being ideal for a large novice audience that does not understand or does not know all the elements and processes of the projects it houses, making its realization and reproduction more possible. Unfortunately Instructables is still in English so those who are also new to Shakespeare will have trouble following the classes or reproducing their projects, but for the rest it will be a great reference point, as good as Wikipedia Do not you think?
