This is my newfound interest – IoT or Internet of Things. I have been taking in all the Maker movements and decided to do something about it. This particular project Raspberry Pi Zero W was the first of the many IoT projects I plan to do and bring you along in my journey. Raspberry Pi Zero W is one of my favorite controller because it’s compact, inexpensive ($10) and with built-in Wifi and well supported by the Raspberry Pi community.
I wouldn’t say this was challenging to me as I have done more difficult and complex hardware design in my career as a hardware development engineer, designing the big-iron mainframe computer and multi-CPU servers. But this was probably more fun as I got to sense and control the real-life environment and it’s relative inexpensive to do.
I look forward to sharing more of this type of projects with you, in addition to all the “boring” book reviews, according to my daughter, I will continue to make.
