This is MASSIVE! ARM support in the Arduino IDE for cheap STM32 ($4) dev boards... Changes the playing field!

Just tried my first PCB etch with HCl and peroxide, what an incredible difference compared to ferric chloride. Thanks to +Chris Fraser​ for joining me in the adventure and to +Ben M​ from +DIYElectronics​ for some tips on the process. Just say no to ferric chloride folks!
