About Me

I have been a developer for 14 years programming in Java, Groovy, Python, C#, C and several other languages. I currently work for The Babcock and Wilcox Corporation where I develop boring Enterprise Technology, specifically creating and managing customizations to a large proprietary J2EE application. In my spare time however, I work on all sorts of projects using many technologies from writing C for AVR microcontrollers to Java web based applications for automating my home. This blog is a way for me to show off my projects and how I built them.

I have decide to use the arduino board to power project E. In fact I think I may end up using 9 arduino boards in Project-E. I estimate that Project-E in total will have 13 microcontrollers. Here you can see I have a very simple circuit that I did based on this tutorial. Its from the Make weekend podcast. These guys are awsome; however, Bre is no longer doing them so well have to see what Make does in the future.

The arduinos come in many different shapes and sizes. You can even just grab the schematics online and build one yourself. Next to my main test board you can see a smaller version of the arduino which I am planning on using in project E.
