I would love to learn the Arduino. I came into Making from multiple angles, including cooking, brewing, and computer programming. I am desperate for some help learning electronics and especially soldering. Eventually, would like to combine everything into making an automated brewing stand.
That is a fantastic idea. In addition to several other maker hobbies I have (amateur radio, mame cabinet, RC flying, stained glass, 1915 home remodel and recently Arduino. . .) my wife and I have been home brewing for 12 years. An automated brewing stand would be really cool.
Another dream project would be an underwater ROV.
