About

Are you struggling with finding your way around the complex world of electronics and programming?

Look no further!

The goal of this site is to take all the interesting and hard to understand areas of electronics and break it down into digestible bits. The Maker Dad is here to help you on this wonderful journey of improving your skills in electronics.

It is quite easy to loose interest in something when it is hard to understand – I know it from my own journey into electronics.

I am a 31 year-old guy from Denmark – a dad of two wonderful kids, husband of a beautiful wife and my trade is marine engineer.

I enjoy home projects of any kind – whether it be electronics, woodworking, home improvement, you name it. The idea for themakerdad.com came to me gradually since I’ve become a dad. I’ve always tinkered around with all sorts of projects at home, and I hope this is something I can pass on to my son and daughter through their upbringing.

In the process I would like to help you get ideas and inspiration.

I hope to distinguish myself from others by providing you all with bits of information that is easy to understand, and gets you one step closer to making you own awesome projects, or just understanding the remarkable world of electronics a bit better.

Even though I have an technical background, I started from scratch in this field of study. I want you to be able to go in my footsteps and I feel I can do it just like that, because I’ve been in your shoes myself.
