The courses are fantastic, but the people here at Ohmify have become my favorite thing. Oyvind and the rest of the Ohmify team are always super helpful, and there are so many talented and knowledgeable “Ohmies” (other members) to learn from as well.– Ron

What’s your name and where are you from?
Ronald Guthrie and I’m currently residing in the state of Texas, in the United States. I was actually born in Germany to a US soldier (and German mother). I also spent quite a few years (about 8-1/2) in Europe when I was stationed there as a musician and loved every minute of it.
What was the main reason you joined Ohmify?
I’ve long had an interest in hobbyist electronics. I tried going through the “Make: Electronics” book, but it didn’t really stick and I still couldn’t read a schematic. I discovered Ohmify a few years ago and finally decided to try it a little over a year ago.
What is the most fun project you’ve ever worked on?
The Design a Kitchen Timer With Kicad course.
Are there any projects you’ve completed since joining Ohmify that you couldn’t have completed before?
Repurposing an old lantern into this.
And quite a few others, basically, anything involving electricity! I wouldn’t have had the know-how nor the confidence.
Is there a project that you’re currently working on?
I just finished building a chicken coop, so I have several projects in mind, one of which is a “weather station” so I can monitor the temperature and humidity inside the coop.
What is your favorite thing about being a part of Ohmify?
