Published another piece on Hackster! This one talks about a Hackaday project, the Knobo, a project that helps individuals type using braile. This is important because braile literacy rates have dropped below 10% in visually imparied children.
Published my second piece on Hackster this time focusing on some other main interests of mine, cybersecurity and the open-sourced community. If you store any aspect of personal data on the internet, then you can understand how important cybersecurity can be. We want to protect our data using high-tech cybersecurity tools but I also believe that is an important for these tools to be public facing, and not hiding any secrets behind closed doors. The Cybersecurity company that I talk about in my second piece SoloKeys, shares this world view and I couldn’t be more excited for the products they are currently developing.
Hackster is the world’s largest network for hardware & software developers. With 1,100,000+ members and 18,000+ projects, beginners and professionals can learn and share how to build robotics, industrial automation systems, AI-powered machines, and everything in between. For the past three years I’ve been both publishing and following tons of writers, inventors and creatives on Hackster.io. The website maintains an inspirational community that help promote fun side projects and ingenuis inventions. Which is why I couldn’t be happier that I was approached with an opporunity to start tech-blogging for the community.

A how-to article for creating an ecosystem to monitor your house plants.
At the beginning of the year I spent some time manufacturing some devices to help keep my houseplants alive, which I named In-Plants.

A how-to article on creating your own hardware/software creations!
I’ve been making side projects religiously for the past 3 years and it’s been a remarkable experience. I went from making hacked together kindergarten level phone applications that only DJKhaled would like - to making projects that I am incredibly proud of.
Article about a collaboration project for a Raspberry Pi NAS.
Spent a few weeks working with cybersecurity researcher Josiah Bryant making a device to allow users to quickly and securely share files locally. For example, imagine you were having a get together with friends to talka bout your last big trip. If you all had tons of images/videos which you wanted to share with each other but you didn’t want to publish it to a coporate cloud like Google, you could just utilize our solution to privately share those files amongst each other.
