I’ve been away from this website for too long.
I’ve taken down some very stale posts and I’ve got some plans for the year ahead. Between work and my personal passions, I should have plenty to write about this year.
All of my product development has transitioned from PowerPC and the Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) VxWorks to embedded Linux on Intel and ARM. I have lots to learn but I’m more excited about work than I’ve been in years. I have multiple new designs in development so I’ll be learning under pressure which is the best way for me. I just can’t learn as much from a book as I do working hands on. I need to solve difficult problems under pressure to truly burn new skills into my brain. Anyone can “learn” a new technology but it’s like learning a foreign language, when we think in the new language, you’ve fully learned something. Maybe, I can tell some good stories in these blog’s pages.
I’m interested in … well everything frankly but I will try and focus this year. Most likely, no one will read this but it’s fun to look back a couple years now.
Work is more insane than ever but I plan to spend more time writing and less time on my hardware/software hacks. Later in the year, I may get back to hardware but at the moment you just can’t buy the parts. So I’ll be sticking to software until the supply chain gets back to normal.
