Soldering is a process to join two metal items together, usually electric components. We do this by melting a low temporature filler metal between the two components, and allowing the filler metal to cool into a solid material. This forms a permanent bond between them. The soldering iron is a heater to heat up our filler metal. We can consider the filler metal to act as a kind of metallic glue that connects the component parts together and allows contuctivity between them.
In addition to soldering there are solderless breadboards which allow you to make test circuits in a temporary fashion.
How To Solder tutorial on Instructables
Applied too much solder? Use a desoldering braid. Heat the solder then use the braid to suck up excess solder.
The authors suggest that postcolonial science studies can do more than expand answers to questions already posed; it can generate different questions and different ways of looking at the world. To illustrate, the authors draw on existing histories and anthropologies and critical theories of colonial and postcolonial technoscience. To move forward together, rather than remaining mired in regretful contemplation of past biases, the authors offer some analytical and practical suggestions. In reading hegemonic forms of postcolonial computing, this article offers tactics for rereading, rewriting, or reimagining those scripts. –Postcolonial Computing: A Tactical Survey
