“Soldering is Easy!” Comic Book


There’s a great new comic about how to solder by Mitch Altman, Andie Nordgren and Jeff “Mightyohm” Keyzer . It’s based on a one-pager that Andie and Mitch made last year, and it’s totally cute and informative. It’s a fantastic example of friendly tech ed, and it’s shareable under a Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license.* Apparently the comic will be part of a book on microcontrollers for beginners that Mitch and Jeff are publishing through No Starch Press later this year.

Here’s the pdf, and check out Jeff’s site for copies in other formats and languages, and even a no-text version if you want to make your own translation.

* Thanks to Asheesh for his characteristically astute request for clarity on the type of CC licence.  Jeff says that folks “are free to teach with it, color it, modify it, share it with your friends, translate it, and basically do whatever you like with it!”  So, yes, get started on that Hindi version if you fancy.  :-)

  1. Creative Commons pedant hat on: While it’s very good that someone chose a CC license, it’s even more helpful for us to know which one. That way, we can immediately get ideas in our heads like, “Oh, I could put that into Wikipedia!” or “I can translate that to Hindi!”

    In good faith,
