This site brings together all of the video content on the Derek Molloy YouTube channel and structures it so that you can follow the videos as lessons. It also integrates associated documentation, datasheets and tools to allow you to get the best from the video series. It also has a blog to allow me to post new videos, articles and useful information that may not be in video form.
I try to answer as many questions as possible; however, I am receiving many, many questions and queries every day, so it is becoming difficult for me to respond. Please post questions to the website and YouTube channel where it is very often the case that other readers and viewers will answer your queries.
About the Author

His videos have introduced millions of people to the BeagleBone, embedded Linux, and digital electronics topics. In 2013, he launched a personal web/blog site, visited by thousands of people every day, which integrates his YouTube videos with support materials, source code, and user discussion.
Derek has received several awards for teaching and learning. He was the winner of the 2012 Irish Learning Technology Association (ILTA) national award for Innovation in Teaching and Learning for his learning-by-doing approach to undergraduate engineering education, which utilizes electronic kits and online video content.

You can contact me by e-mail using the form below; however, please be aware that I receive several hundred e-mail and message board requests every week and I cannot physically answer them all and continue to create new content (and perform my full-time job and mind my four children!). If at all possible, please post your question against one of the topics on this site (and feel free to answer the questions of others that I may have missed).
Also, please remember that some of the videos and blog posts are some years old and I have forgotten much of the detail in them — I have been known to watch my own videos in order to remind me of the topics. In fact, that is a large part of the reason that I started this blog — I was keeping my notes in paper notebooks, but this way they can be of use to others too…
Thanks for your understanding, Derek.
