We give a friendly introduction to (part of) noncommutative differential geometry
with emphasis on, and applications to, examples coming from gauge theories.
In particular, starting from (what physicists call) monopoles and instantons as connections
on bundles over spheres, we arrive at very natural deformations of spaces and bundles.
The `noncommutative' manifolds and vector bundles that one obtains have very
interesting and rich geometrical structures that can be described with natural tools.
