I am just getting started with the Netduino platform, having just purchased a Netduino Go starter kit.
In my professional life I am an enterprise/software architect, and have very deep expertise in Visual Studio, C#, etc. But I'm a rookie when it comes to basic electronics. I earned a B.S. in Engineering decades ago and had to take a core curriculum EE class in networks. But I've never had to use it so don't remember anything about that.
I know that I need to learn to do basic breadboarding and learn some basic electronics in order to be able to do things like control a relay that turns a 120v AC device on and off, etc.
What advice can you give someone like myself on how to come up to speed on basic electronic knowledge and breadboarding. Is there one of those "For Dummies" books you would recommend, or is there some home science kit aimed at children that you think I should buy and work through?
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
