Greetings from Omaha,NE

Recommended Posts

Yet another hobbyist trying to teach himself electronics and embedded systems. I was a programmer for 10y, mostly server-side and the beginnings of J2EE but got frustrated with the layers upon layers of abstraction so I decided to start programming on the bare metal in my spare time. I played around with AVRs before Arduinos existed and enjoyed that but I've been told that you get better if you branch out to other micros. So, here I am. 

 

I already have a collections of launchpads and have worked through the MSP430 workshop that TI has online so I think I have a good basis to start with. Now I'm off working on my first project, an RGB LED strip driver that I can control the color and brightness. Should be fun.

The closeness to the hardware is a different experience. If you try some assembly language you can really get a flavor for the silicon and the designers point of view. Welcome aboard!
