Shenzhen is one of, if not the most important cities for electronics manufacturing in the world. So when Freetronics posts an 18 part video series covering everything from the Huaqiangbei market, to Maker Faire Shenzhen, to a tour of the SEEED factory, it’s hard to resist tuning in. You can read all you want about Chinese manufacturing, but seeing it really is something else.

The documentary explores a variety of manufacturing sites, but also discusses more abstract topics like “Incubators and Role of Government“, so it’s really worth checking each video out. The chapters are below:

4: The Factory Tours of Shenzhen – Defond
5: The Electronics Markets of Shenzhen
