Authors:

Dr. Simon Monk (Preston, UK) has a bachelor's degree in cybernetics and computer science and a Ph.D. in software engineering. He spent several years as an academic before he returned to industry, co-founding the mobile software company Momote Ltd. He has been an active electronics hobbyist since his early teens and is a full-time writer on hobby electronics and open-source hardware. Dr. Monk is author of numerous electronics books, specializing in open-source hardware platforms, especially Arduino and Raspberry Pi. He is also co-author with Paul Scherz of Practical Electronics for Inventors, Fourth Edition. You can follow him on Twitter, where he is @simonmonk2.

Duncan Amos (Catalunya, Spain) built his first "crystal set" at age nine, attended a school that offered an electronics class (very rare when transistors cost a small fortune and were supplied in individual boxes, packed in a cotton ball), took holiday jobs in the fledgling UK computer industry, and began full-time employment as an apprentice in a company that produced TV broadcast equipment. He has been involved with producing printed circuit boards for almost 50 years and has straddled many industries from environmental monitoring to aerospace—several of his PCBs are in earth orbit and continue to function after more than 25 years in that harsh environment. Although "officially retired," Mr. Amos continues to produce PCBs and electronic designs for nonprofit groups, small companies, and start-ups, and regularly performs technical reviews of books on electronics.
