## Electronics 101: Introduction

In this tutorial, we provide the very basic fundamentals and also give you a thorough understanding of the principles and operation of electronic components and devices. This means, as a beginner, you don’t need prior knowledge about electronics to follow along.

In the first chapter, we will cover the basics of electricity and a few terminologies and then we’ll move on to simple, intermediate and advanced electronic components and circuits. The electronic components that we’ll learn about in these tutorials will be used to build simple circuits and projects, this way as a beginner you will be able to know how to apply and use them in real life.

Before we embark on this course, I’ll advise you to buy a starter kit with a few basic electronic components to help you build your own circuits and projects as you follow along with the tutorial series. Alternatively, you could use simulation software such as Proteus Design Suite or EasyEDA, but either way, you’ll get to learn a great deal about electronics.

In this introductory course to Electronics, we are going to cover the following:
