This site was created so I could share my work with other electronic and robotic hobbyists. Do you want to learn how to build smart gadgets that light up and move? Want to learn how to use a Raspberry Pi or Arduino, but don't know where to start? Then this site is for you!
Who Am I?
I’m Mitch Allen, a maker, software engineer and tech writer. I originally went to school for hardware. Ever since I was a little kid I ripped apart all of my electronic toys (… and a few appliances …). Like every engineer I wanted to find out how they worked. But I also wanted to use the parts to build robots.
My first job out of college was for an industrial robot factory in New England. A lot of those jobs went offshore and I made the jump to software. I've finally come full circle and am once again working for a robotics company in New England.
When the Arduino Uno came out I bought a starter kit. I finally jumped on the Raspberry Pi when the 3 came out. Then I really started getting into the Pi Zero. My goal is to use those devices as the core of my personal robot projects and document my work here.
