There has been a period of silence over the past months as I had been given the opportunity to apply some of my new technical skills in the Computing Physical Interface space. In particular a friend offered me the opportunity to build an instrument based on a single board computer with a physical interface to a piece of laboratory equipment. No, there is not much danger of me making money here, and I have been interested enough in it to invest in a number of new pieces of kit, but this pro-bono project has 'def peaked my interest.
Over the coming weeks and months I will attempt to look back on the past several months to document some of my learnings. I am going to backdate these posts to approximate when I actually might have gained the knowledge!
