Happy New Year!
The turn of a year is an opportunity to reflect (look back) and plan (look forward).
2022 was another challenging year in many respects, and 2023 will be no less challenging.
However, the common ground I appreciate in the diverse and worldwide Maker community is our focus on learning, sharing, and helping each other and our belief that life can be better through the intelligent application of technology.
On a personal note, work and play are often intertwined. I love to tinker with technology, learn by doing, document and publish my work, and interact with you on the Makers Club or the Blog comments.
I feel privileged to be a member of this community and to be able to merge work with play for all these years (since 2013!!!).
Thank you to each of you for your support and for allowing me to join you in your technology exploration adventures!
Latest course updates
In 2022, we updated many of our courses. Last week we published updates to “Arduino IoT Cloud – Getting Started” and “Oscilloscopes for Beginners“. In early December, we also published an update to “Node-RED and ESP32 Project“.
- In “Arduino IoT Cloud – Getting Started“, the update contains a new lecture that covers the changes to the Arduino Cloud user interface introduced in the second half of 2022.
- In “Oscilloscopes for Beginners“, I have introduced seven new lectures demonstrating the Zoolark electronics multi-tool in oscilloscope mode, a new ESP32 waveform generator (written by Stephane), and a fun ESP32 X-Y plot generator (also written by Stephane). You will find the new content in sections 3, 9 and 12.
- With the upgrade to “Node-RED and ESP32 Project,” you will learn how to upgrade your Node-RED instance to version 3 and use the most important new and updated features.
We also published a sequel to Raspberry Pi Full Stack: Raspberry Pi Full Stack Upgrade Project.
2022 was a busy year, as usual.
