Intro to Hardware Reversing: Finding a UART and getting a shell

This video is part of the Figurable project, which is geared toward people who are curious about IoT security and looking for that first bite of the apple.
If you’re interested in hardware but haven’t had a chance to play with any yet, this one’s for you. In this “hello world”-level reversing project we’re checking out a UART (serial port) and using it to access a shell on a *very* soft target.
If you decide to try it on your own you’ll find an equipment list, walk-through references, and some troubleshooting ideas at the link below.

Cheap PCB Assembly from China [Test & Tutorial]

This video shows how to use JLCPCB’s cheap assembly service.

Since I’m developing boards on a weekly basis I had to test JLC’s new service and show how to easily use it with EasyEDA online design tool. The results are surprising and you can get off really cheap using basic components. I hope this quick tutorial will help to handle the limitations and get you first assembled boards from china really cheap.
