FAQ

Where can I get Arduinos/Raspberry Pis/electronic components in Halifax?

There isn't a lot of selection for electronics in Halifax. Local options are: Jentronics, RAE Electronics and the Discovery Centre gift shop. But generally, most hobbyists buy from online sites like Aliexpress, Adafruit, or eBay. Online options typically take a lot longer, of course, but are cheaper and have a wider selection. Another option is to ask our Google Group. Typically, electronics hobbyists buy extras and tend to be generous with them. Often you'll be able to borrow a part from a local until an online part arrives.
