  1. JS is good, it is almost like a living organism how fast and easy it is to add packages and functions. The asynchronous aspect is pretty cool too, sometimes it can get out of hand. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Personally I like interpreted languages. I'll take easy to read/write code over the tangled mess that I can often get myself into with types in C. And the same time the target needs to have the resources that the interpreter is not a burden. At this point I've written in so many languages, they all sort of blend together anyway. What do you mean by "reversing the bindings?" Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks, I really appreciate everyone's support! Vinicius was officially the skull that move the project to the #12 spot Now just a matter of keeping pace & finish strong! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yeah it's pretty cool. The one caveat with NodeMCU is that the Lua interpreter takes a lot of RAM. I've switched to using this: https://github.com/esp8266/Arduino Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks, I've looked into this. I actually have been selling these on Tindie as well: https://www.tindie.com/products/ImpGuru/esp8266-mini-development-kit/ Price could certainly be lower but I wasn't sure how easy they would be to build. Turns out that it is not too bad. I heard from some people who purchased my kit that they had trouble witht he USB to UART chip on the NodeMCU version. I still prefer genuine FTDI chips... There is also this which is a pretty remarkable deal: https://www.tindie.com/products/AprilBrother/cactus-micro-rev2-arduino-compatible-plus-esp8266/?pt=full_prod
  6. Thanks again everyone for your help, the skull count keeps inching up Currently at 97 follows, 5 comments and 62 skulls. Just 3 more skulls to reach that #12 spot! The sign up Link is here: https://hackaday.io/signin?returnUrl=%2Fproject%2F4648-analogio-a-full-stack-iot-platform Project page is here: https://hackaday.io/project/4648-analogio-a-full-stack-iot-platform This weekend my goal is to publish a video documenting my toaster oven build process for the sensor nodes that I've been shipping out. Also I was very excited to hear that the project is going to be featured
  7. Hey @@bluehash entries are archived on Sept 21st for judging finalists so that is the next deadline. Help with a push via announcements and/or newsletter would be a tremendous help. Anything to get more eyeballs on the project page Thanks for the offer!
  8. There is so many great places to share info & like you said, contests too. hackster.io is another example. I will say that with instructables, they get an incredible amount of site traffic. If you are looking to get a a lot of exposure instructables is the best. Look at this post for example: http://www.instructables.com/id/TempBug-internet-connected-thermometer/125k views, and I know that at least 15 people from all over the world have built Tom's TempBug and connected it to analog.io. On another note, the hackaday project continues to thrive now in spot #16, up to 81 followers,
  9. Hmm, it's unclear if that is part of the rules. Notice that some projects are carry overs from the year previous Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I hear you, there are for sure some great projects in the mix. I just keep my head down and keep plowing forward. I feel like consistency is key. That and validation from other community members through skulls and testimonial comments. I think that the challenge will be having a project that holds true to the "build something that matters" theme. I can make a case for mine, it isn't as compelling as some of the other top 10 projects IMO. Still, the same argument is true for a robotic arm or a solar charger. It is what it is at this point regardless of who wins I'll be happy that i
  11. Thanks @@timotet! As for the originality of other entires. I do have hope that the judges flesh this out in the final 10. My fear would be that 100 entries is a lot to do this level of diligence on so I want to continue to promote the project and keep accumulating skulls so there's no question that analog.io has what it takes to make the finals Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. You and I have talked about similar things before, this looks like a great project! I'm not sure right now if I can commit the time though :/ That and I don't have much expertise with RTOS. This would be a good excuse to get some!
  13. By the way, with everyone's help, the project is now number 22, thats exciting. With only 9 more skulls the project can jump 7 spots to number 15! Heres a fun pic from this weekend: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks for the Skull! The list is a little difficult to find but here it is: https://hackaday.io/list/7402-2015-hackaday-prize-semifinalists Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Thanks @@zeke it's a lot of fun! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Yes sorry for the delayed reply but I did get your message, thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Thanks! The project is moving up the ranks, #30 now with 36 skulls thanks to 43oh members. Surprisingly, the next 3 skulls would move the project up another 5 spots. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Haha, yes he didn't quite catch the point. Making the sensor is the most fun! I do know Greg though, I interviewed with him awhile back but ended up working somewhere else. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Yeah all I can do is laugh, it could have been much much worse if the 9000 gallons filled my basement. What is also funny is that I called the local water department and told them what happened. Her reaction was very nonchalant. Said "we don't even start to worry until you lose 20,000 gallons." I feel sorry for that guy! She estimated about $50-$60 worth of water. I guess its a good thing that I don't live in AZ or CA... But yes it would be much worse if the spill was cause by a IoT actuator. Luckily, so far I have spent all of my time on sensors. Sent from my iPhone
  20. I thought that maybe some forum members would enjoy this cautionary tale that I wrote: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/my-epic-fail-internet-things-iot-luke-beno It's kinda funny and has a happy ending. Also just a quick run down on how things are going with the 2015 Hackaday prize: Currently analog.io is ranked #35 with 56 followers, 5 comments and 29 Skulls. The top project has 443 followers, 56 comments and 161 Skulls. Right now it would take 55 Skulls to move to the 10th rank. 10 Finalists are going to be selected on Sept 21st. While the judging criteria is not based solely
  21. PIR sensors too Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Very cool, this library would be very useful for interfacing to one of these https://www.tindie.com/products/limpkin/hb100-doppler-module-with-backpack-1/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Sometimes I'm just totally blown away by how far embedded development has come in terms of ease of use. I spent the evening tinkering with porting to library to ESP8266, just a few hours later with some pretty easy to read code, it was working Soon sensor nodes will be able to connect to the internet through this bridge https://hackaday.io/project/4648-analogio-a-full-stack-iot-platform/log/24297-nrf24-esp8266-hub-development Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Cool, I actually shipped out the first 10 units today so I can turn orders fairly quick. I'm putting together docs as well but they are not complete yet. Two things that I have so far are: RF library with examples: https://github.com/analog-io/analog_io_lib Info on getting the board setup in the energia environment: https://github.com/analog-io/iot_sensor_node Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
