Hi humans,

I love computers. Particularly the networking elements that allow mass, real time data flow. I also love tinkering with micro controllers + sensors in my free time.

Professionally leading the backend efforts in an IoT startup (a little oxymoronic, kind of, but not really)

Cool site and seemingly awesome community goin' on here!

Hello back to you fellow human! ðŸĪŠ I have messed with hardware (arduino + sensors, etc) in the past... fun! Are you working on any neat projects at the moment?

I order a bunch of the new Particle Argon boards docs.particle.io/argon/ but haven't had time todo much with them. Impressive how beefy they are! With so many peripherals baked in. Have worked mostly with Arudino based guys as well in the past.

This is my favorite, strictly person project github.com/rsmets/Motion-Controlle.... MPU 650 accelerometer/gyro chip + teensy 3.2 and leds makes for a buttonless "flow" controller led cane.

I hadn't seen the particle argon board before - and that project looks neat! Thanks for the links :)

Hi Ray! IoT, that seems kinda awesome. I've been doing some deep digging on the topic lately... it's got some real potential. I hope that I will begin to understand networking one day... it's a crazy deep topic which can lead you down the rabbit hole into some deep mathematics like fuzzy computation, wavelets, and graph theory though.
