I'm very new to LEDs and need to help getting started. Where should I start? Answered
My current huge curiosity is LEDs. I love them, I don't know much about them except that they are little plastic bubbles that take very little electrical power to get them going. I want to learn more however, I have a project which is to light up my computer desk's edges in my room. Problem is, I don't know where to start. I tried reading a bunch of instructables here already but most of them do not really explain the wiring process. I am a graphics designer and I have had a minor in computer science but never got into electrical engineering. I understand the simple things that go behind an electrical cricuit (like power sources and positives and negatives) but thats the extent of how much I know. I need somebody to help me and get me going so I can start evolving. Could anybody here help me get started? A few explanations, guides, tutorials? Thank you very much in advance.
