A few foundations of analog video on breadboard - an interactive six part online course

a few foundations of analog video on breadboard

design and build your own vga-synthesizer!

an interactive six part online course with cyberboy666

tl;dr - im teaching an online course about making art with electronics - find out more info and join the wait-list here - first session likely running august 2023

this is a beginner-friendly and hands-on creative course about making video-art with electronics. no experience or specialized tools are required – everything you need to get started building your own vga synthesizer on breadboard will be sent to you via the mail.

the course will run over six weeks, with each ~2-hour lesson touching on a different foundational concept of analog video. after briefly learning about some theory, you will follow schematics and breadboard diagrams together to build a module each week and experiment with the newly learnt concepts directly.

the course makes use of this custom vga_breadboard_module pcb to interface between vga signals and the breadboard - its going to be a lot of fun really looking forward to sharing it with you!

im also excited to announce this will be an inaugural course hosted on polyphaseportal.xyz
