About Dave Astels

Thanks for visiting my Patreon page. Supporters like you are why I do this, and why I'm able to.

Patreon is a website that enables fans to "pledge" a monthly amount of $ and in return, those fans get the satisfaction of helping to create content they enjoy, as well some some perks.

I've been working in computer hardware and software for well over 30 years and have learned a lot of lessons over that time. Now it's time to give back.

All of my work these days is with the goal of helping all of you get better at making things with tech: primarily electronics, microcontrollers (think Arduino, Feather, etc), retro-computing, and 3d printing.  Think of me like Ben Heck but with more hair and less accent.

You can find my content in various places including Youtube, HackSpace MagazineAdafruit's learning guide site, and Adafruit's forums.

When I'm not fiddling with tech, I'm probably fiddling with fountain pens or practicing calligraphy.

I'm on Patreon because I am doing this full-time and, to be honest, it covers the most important day-to-day bills, but just barely. Most of the time.  So if you enjoy my articles, guides, and tutorials, consider throwing a few $$ my way each month. It all helps and it's all appreciated.
