Welcome to Diogo Makes!

This is the place where I show you how to go from an idea to a tangible object so you too can shape the world.

Let me tell you a little bit about how I found the world of making and the fantastic maker community.

Due to spending much time at the computer, I was doing a study on what would be the most ergonomic workspace I could make. Any other geeks out there? 😁

Anyway, I came to the conclusion that the perfect keyboard to the type of work that I do would be an 88 key, backlit, ISO format, mechanical (probably brown switch) keyboard.

You can't really go more specific than that, am I right, haha?

The thing is, I searched everywhere to try and find where I could buy that piece of gear, but apparently, no one sells that very specific keyboard.

So, being a designer, I thought to myself - "How hard can it be to create my own keyboard?".

And after searching on multiple electronics forums, I finally found the Arduino platform and the world of making and the maker community where lots of people like me and you from all backgrounds are creating amazing things with basic knowledge and lots of passion and enthusiasm.

That was it for me.

I was hooked on making and started making all sorts of creations of my own.

From 3D printed tools to aid me in my work to simple objects and accessories that solve problems in my daily life.

And now I want to give back to the community.

The time has come where I show you what I've learned and how you too can create just about anything you can imagine.

So join me on my journey as we explore the maker world together!
