I'm streaming

  • Raspberry Pi

    People often ask me what is possible with the power of the raspberry pi. I’m have a tendency to buy numerous microcontrollers / cheap standalone controllers, just to see how they work and if they could prove more useful to me than the raspberry pi. The release of the Pi Zero for $5 pretty much put the nail in the coffin when it comes to IoT ( Internet of Things ) work for prototyping.

  • Week 1: Initial live stream thoughts

    The start of learning / starting something new usually has a rocky start. There is a lot to learn when creating an entertaining and informative product. After my first week of streaming I have documented and put together a list of things to work on. Some things I need to work on:

    1. Have a better idea of what to accomplish during the stream / be able to explain it
    2. Stop over engineering things ( Start Small then expand after a strong base project )
    3. Estimate
    4. Do research prior to prove proof of concepts

  • 2016 Goals

    2016 brings an interesting time, goals set high, I have always wanted to have a consistent prototyping cycle with more pinpoint accuracy on estimating projects. On a weekly basis I am coding on numerous occasions but never document it. This year I am planning on changing that by live streaming the majority of my coding ( Unfortunately I can’t document my corporate work or the majority of my consulting work due to NDAs ).
