Hey there! I'm from Singapore, where it is summer all year round I studied Industrial Design in university and fiddled a little with Arduino. However I wasn't very good with it and eventually gave up! So this would be a great chance for me to try again.
Oh, and I chanced upon this through Gamebuino and Makerbuino! So very excited to get my hands on all the pixel-love!
Seems like an awesome community here!
