  • Raspberry Pi: Multiple wpa_supplicant networks

    Imagine building a raspberry pi project at home that is dependent on wifi. Everything is working perfectly until you move that project somewhere outside your home network. You have to go find a monitor and keyboard to set it up on the new wifi. This process is difficult, time consuming, and stressful. I have had the pleasure to endure this multiple times throughout my projects. Especially when there is pressure to have it done for a public event. I was curious if there was a way to get the networks to be plug and play, where there would not be an issue when moving it from one place to another. Doing a bit of research I have found that you can setup multiple wireless networks on the raspberry pi. 

  • 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.

  • 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 ).

  • The Internet of Everything, why should we care?

    The Internet of Everything ( IoE ), also called Internet of Things ( IoT ) or Machine to Machine ( M2M ), the concept of technology having the capability to harness the power of the internet to communicate between devices. Now this concept may seem like a long shot but let’s go over some history before we can truly grasp this new Internet of Everything movement.
