How to Make Printed Circuit Boards 101

I just posted Episode 18 of Code Hour.  In this one I show how to build a Printed Circuit Board (PCB) from prototype, to design, to manufacture.


I demonstrate how to populate a board with LED's, resistors and solder paste, and then reflow solder the components to make a finished board.

Along the way I show a cool time-lapse video of solder paste condensing into its mercury-like liquid state.




This is a very different code hour. Please write in in the comments or me hit up on twitter to let me know how it went and if he should do more like this or if I should really just stick to coding.
