A Typical Hardware Hobby Enthusiast is a Hacker when he starts learning, it is sometimes given the name of reverse engineering in another context. The Hardware Hobby Freelance hacker is better off, he is doing it for Learning and Education. Students should be given new and challenging projects in well equipped labs, to augment their skills and make them productive in their jobs from day one.
Electronics Theory and Tutorials
As an Electronics Engineer i had always needed data sheets and application notes. The web makes these documents not only accessible to all, but searchable too.
Process Control Instruments
These are some instruments i manufactured when i used to run my own industrial automation business.
Now many Virtual Electronics Workbench Software and Interactive Tutors are available, these aid learning. We have to design, build and apply some electronic ideas in 3D Hardware, for complimenting the Book, Academic or Web learning. Practical and Theoretical study in electronics has to be in Tandem, this is possible only when Industry works with Universities to create real talent and skills in students. The applied technology is evolving, hence the academic education must be relevant when the student gets into his first job.

"when you solder the windows should be opened, cross ventilation must be good, because the fumes are not very good for health. After you finish wash your hands with soap, as lead is poisonous or toxic"
- Solderman Talks 1702 AD
Theory must be studied once and referred again and again as you do practicals. One is by building DIY projects and then modifying them. Also Repair of equipment, troubleshooting, testing and calibrating. Then you know how components behave and real life limitations. Now design and engineer a product and test it at customer site. do a pilot production and test with more clients. Now you will learn to think based on practical application.

This invention lead to modern electronics, computers and internet look at this page, Transistor Photo.
History of The Transistor the "Crystal Triode"
A picture of the first transistor ever assembled, invented in Bell Labs in 1947. It was called a point contact transistor because amplification or transistor action occurred when two pointed metal contacts were pressed onto the surface of the semiconductor material.

Electronics Concepts at HyperPhysics
Students should go thru this website from cover-to-cover, It is a work of knowledge that is priceless
Ampere's Law at HyperPhysics
"Ampere's Law states that for any closed loop path, the sum of the length elements times the magnetic field in the direction of the length element is equal to the permeability times the electric current enclosed in the loop."
Sony used to get the abandoned ww2 radios in the islands to design, make and sell their first radio units. Honda used to fix bikes from europe and america to gain the skills and mutate to a global giant. Take apart, reverse engineer, fix and learn.
Hackerspaces are community-operated physical places, where people can meet and work on their projects.This website is for 'Anyone and Everyone' who wants to share their hackerspace with international hacker's'paces.
Every kid is a born hacker and he starts with his toys, his mom does not like that, but he does not stop. One day he is building something pretty big.
Dallas Makerspace Wiki - Membership based, non-profit, shared community workshop and laboratory.
Milwaukee Makerspace - Social club for people who like build, invent, tinker and/or collect new skills and expand their minds.
In the late nineties and the early 2000. There were Hobby DIY Groups, Ham Radio Groups and Learning Electronics Communities. Hackerspaces by function, may be as old as technology itself. People working in a garage or shop to learn skills or build-invent something, but with different names like "Metal Tinkering Club" etc..
Recently the people at Make created a more organized and sustainable movement, that is helping the "MakerSpace" Phenomenon Emerge - Makezine - MAKE brings the do-it-yourself mindset to all the technology in your life.
