This post is part of a series in which I’m dedicating two months to learning six new skills this year. The full schedule can be found here. This is month eleven/twelve.
I failed. I tried my best to get this done, but I couldn’t. I will say this. I bought an Arduino kit from Amazon and began to work with it. It’s fricking incredible. The programming language is pretty simple (if you already know how to program a language like C+, I should say). The components are unbelievable, especially for the money. I’d need more time to play around with them to design something cool, but I can see how you could learn to put these things together to build something pretty amazing. I wish I’d had more time, but November and December crushed me.
I will put this away and save it for some magical month in the future when I have more time. It will be worth it.
