This workshop is Sparkfun's very popular course that teaches SMD soldering to anyone who thinks they can't possibly solder those little pins. This will be a hands-on workshop where the students learn techniques to help them solder surface mount components. There is a minimum age requirement of 15 years old, and it is highly recommended that you have a strong background in soldering, as basic soldering skills will not be covered. It is also highly recommended that you be comfortable with soldering, although you don't need to be an expert.
Though Hole Soldering (Intro to Soldering) or equivalent (which you can get any Monday night at Noisebridge's Circuit Hacking Monday -- feel free to come to the one tonight, starting at 7pm!). This SMD workshop also requires participants have the physical dexterity to hold a soldering iron (equivalent of a heavy pencil) and solder (thin wire) steady with both hands and tweezers.
