Personal Goal: Accomplished

Tyler/ May 24, 2019/ Programming/ 0 comments

Today, one of my personal goals was realized. I made a small contribution to a large open-source project. The project is the Arduino core for the ESP8266. The ESP8266 is my workhorse microcontroller, but the Arduino core provides a framework to quickly develop software. It contains numerous features that are based on the Arduino platform but adapted for the ESP8266.

I’m still a slave to the books, but I occasionally decompress with a little eBay browsing. I’m accruing material for projects I’ve got planned for my glorious post Core Exam days, but I couldn’t resist giving one cool little tool a test drive. A common need in making brewing hardware is a hole in sheet metal for a valve or instrument.

A couple of friends and I have been planning a brew day, and we’ve been looking forward to it for months. It was tough to wait this long between brew sessions, but it was well worth it.
