Electrical Engineer in Niskayuna:
"It's a long learning curve, but fun."
Be careful of the details, but learn to know where to pay attention to the details, and where it's ok to hand-wave. If you are not a detailed oriented person, find someone who is, and get them on your team. Always have a back-up plan when the nominal plan fails. Better yet, have a Plan C, and Plan D, and buy plenty of spare parts unless the cost is prohibitive. Many times, the cost of extra materials is small compare to lost calendar time when you needed a part and the next order won't come for another 4 weeks. Have options built into the design when uncertainty is high, then remove them as you iterate towards the final design. Always plan for at least 2 shots at getting a design right. Buy a good multimeter and put your name on it.
