Hi, I am Liudr, a Tesla member at the arduino forum at http://arduino.cc/forum/ Most of the forum members are newbies, non-engineer or non-scientist type everyday fellows that are hooked on the simplicity and fun of making cool and functional projects with arduino. There is no shame in asking any basic questions. We answer them repeatedly 🙂 I have started tinkering with arduino since the early part of 2009 and have been an active member of the forum since 2010. This blog is an extension of my activities on arduino forum and my raspberry pi activities. I have contributed to the arduino software with several open source libraries, including phi_prompt, the very first user interface library, and several other ones, Morse code, big fonts on LCD, buttons, etc. I am also a hardware designer. I designed the popular phi-1 shield and phi-2 shield, SDI-12 data logging shield etc. I have also designed and programmed a number of data loggers as consultant.
Arduino is an open-source microcontroller software and hardware system based on ATMEL’s ATMEGA microcontroller family and Processing IDE. Arduino is a perfect system for physical computing and is very friendly to newbies.
In my blog, I mostly log my projects with arduino, raspberry pi, physics with arduino, making printed circuit boards (PCB), my designs, and other electronics-related contents. I am also a computer CPU collector. If you have old CPU’s, like Pentium or older, I’d like to trade with you with my designs!
