I am just about finished with the MITx course that I was taking. Now that that monkey is off my bank, I can get back to my regular schedule of tinkering.
The 2nd RISC-V workshop has been announced. I may or may not put together another poster. I recently read Laszlo Bock's book and will certainly post a review of it. In fact, I have a few other books that will be interesting to blurb about.
On the home front, the home automation effort has begun. This will be exciting! The wife is also excited! A z-wave enabled door bolt is on the way, but I've yet to decide what type of controller to use. All signs point to one from Mi Casa Verde, but I may hold off for a product with a more refined software ecosystem, or robust interface to script all triggers myself ;)
For hardware, it is time to dig into Chisel more. I may or may not be partnering with another group to work on a project in this area.
