I am interested in having someone point me in the right direction. I would like to start experimenting with electronics and I have a background in computer science. As a result, I could probably write the code once I figure out what I need. What I would like to know is how would one go about getting the parts for some of the electronic projects that are available online. I tried looking at specs from companies like TI, but I dont understand all of the specs, and it seems these companies will not sell retail, but wholesale.
SO...Info on parts and projects (In order of difficulty) would be greatly appreciated. Not interested in a running start, and dont mind re-inventing the wheel if it would provide me with usefull information.
Thanks is Advanced.
