Software Introduction

This category contains assorted software projects and topics.

I try to work on personal projects that aren’t too closely related to work. This is mainly to help keep me interested, but also helps with any IP issues. 

I will be putting code up somewhere (probably github) as the actual projects get underway and hope to get some of the project management/task tracking organized and made public as well. 

Hardware Introduction

This category contains assorted hardware projects, inclusive of the hardware portions embedded ones.

I plan to setup some git (github?) repositories for sharing schematics/layouts etc. Git isn’t really a great tool for it though, so I’ll be keeping my eye out for a better solution. 

I am not a hardware person by any stretch, so exploring in this direction should be fun. 

Books Introduction

Welcome to the Books section of Sparking Squirrel.

Books are important to me. In technical endeavors, I generally find myself using them to build knowledge from the bottom up (vs top down like projects tend to promote).

My pal is to use this section to track progress through various books that I am working my way through, and probably write some book reviews along the way as well. 

Obviously, this category will overlap with the others depending on the subject matter involved. I’m not yet certain that separating them out into a distinct category is worthwhile, but I figured I’d give it a shot. Each book should also have it’s own tag, so that might be sufficient. Time will tell.
