[San Francisco, CA] – Amidst the countless universities and schools raising tuition rates and cost of education, one man is stepping outside the norm and providing classes on electrical engineering completely free of charge: No ads; no memberships; just free education.
Christopher Peurifoy, a Masters of Electrical Engineering graduate from California State University: Chico and creator of the electronics website pyroelectro.com, wants to share his wealth of knowledge with anyone with an Internet connection and the desire to learn. The only obstacle in his way is the cost of funding such an undertaking. Read the rest of this entry »
PartSim is a full-featured circuit simulator that allows anyone to create, simulate and share electronic circuits using their web browser,” said Cody Miller, Aspen Labs president and CEO. “Web-based tools offer huge productivity boosts. There are no install processes, application updates are automatic, and projects are easily shared using web links. We’ve partnered with Digi-Key Corporation to offer this tool free of charge and look forward to building a community of users.

I recently came across this neat web app that let’s you draw an equation and have it automatically converted to LaTeX or MathML. You can also submit the eq. to Wolfram Alpha for evaluation. This is actually a demo page for MyScript handwriting recognition software, and it recognizes all the standard LaTeX symbols, including Greek letters and set operators. Super handy if you want to draft up a quick LaTeX expression and can’t remember the special character codes.
