As I’ve been talking to CE users, it’s become clear that people would enjoy having small groups to do design reviews and/or talk through the difficult parts of their projects. For those I haven’t yet talked to, is this something of interest?
The primary driver is that there are a lot of people working on electronics by themselves all over the world. There is no one to bounce ideas off of, nor to “sanity check” design decisions. I am thinking that small groups would allow this to happen on a formal or informal basis. Certain aspects of this are offered by Contextual Electronics (especially tutoring sessions), but that is not always the right choice. Some people cannot afford those and sometimes it’s not needed.
Has anyone been part of a remote group like this before? How did it work? Any thoughts?
