About James

About the Bald Engineer
James is best known for Arduino tutorials, capacitor talks, and unique AddOhms video animations. While I enjoy creating all of this amazing stuff, it does take time. And hardware. For the most part, I buy everything I feature. Your pledge helps offset that cost and enables me to spend more time creating content.

All of the tiers above the $5 mark include a real-world physical bonus. Like, a real thing! Make sure you provide a valid shipping address. I'll ship the items after your (successful) payment. Also, can you decode the dollar amounts.

Video Chat Tier
The FPGA tier includes a monthly hangout with me. Unlike my weekly live streams, this hangout offers a one-to-one conversation. The hangout includes everyone on that tier, which is why it is limited. I'll do my best to schedule a time that works for everyone. 

Types of content I create
There are two major types of content I create. Your pledge will help see more like these.

1. Weekly Blog Posts
On baldengineer.com, I post new tutorials and reviews on Wednesdays. Post topics include Arduino, Raspberry Pi, engineering concepts, and hands-on experiences. My goal is to post weekly, but sometimes subjects take 2 or 3 weeks to develop. 

2. AddOhms YouTube Channel
AddOhms is a tutorial and projects video channel focused on electronics and maker technology. Search YouTube for "MOSFET," and you'll find my most popular tutorial. I post videos about once a month and host weekly live streams.

Thank you for taking a look at my Patreon page. I look forward to stepping up my work with your pledge.
