I used to do some electronics decades ago and rekindled my interest when I came across a PSU I'd built from a magazine article that had been collecting dust. I was pleasantly surprised to find I could download a copy of the article so could check out the circuit.

The second surprise was that "basic" electronics these days seems to assume an MCU, usually an Arduino.

Circuit 1 is a button, a resistor and an LED in series.
Circuit 2 has a button connected to one pin of an MCU board and the LED plus resistor on another pin! Smile | :)

I agree about the sense of achievement when a circuit you've designed, built and programmed works even if it's just for my own use.
