Fritzing: Electronics made easey for non-electronikers by Amin Zayani

Published on

Fritzing is a software tool which allows users to document these electronic prototype projects and share them with others. Due to its intuitive approach, it can help teach electronics to people without an engineering background.
Until the development of Fritzing it was difficult to document or share these projects. Prototypes could only be photographed with their overlapping wires, which made them very difficult to “read”.
