Hi all, I’m Mike.
My background is in Electronics and Software. Beginning in the mid 70’s I started a career as an electronics communication technician but discovered the new-fangled microprocessors during my basic training. After 15 years of maintaining everything from teleprinters to satellite ground stations, while building and programming home computers as a hobby, I finally switched careers to software engineering working on avionic flight control systems. With much experience in varied languages and operating systems, I am ashamed to say my project output is almost non-existent. I have spent all my time examining and admiring everybody else’s. With the advent of the Arduino and then the Pi I thought that might change but they just resulted in an explosion of new makers with more content for me to view.
