What is this blog about? Well, right now, it is about nothing at all... But what it is supposed to be is some kind of a documentary about my personal little electronics projects.
Why is it called "PiLight"? Well, I started fiddling with those little credit-card sized computers called "Raspberry Pi" (let me tell you, they are awesome!) a while ago, and I found them to be extremely useful when it comes to controlling all sorts of LED lighting equipment. Since then I've been working on a lighting system called "pilight" to make all the little lights around my place to shine together in awesomeness. I'm not quite there yet, and here I wanted to write a little about my progress.
Who am I? My name's Jakob, I'm a big enthusiast when it comes to programming and computers in general, and electronics have always been a little hobby for me. Those recent experiences with the Pi have drawn me deeper into electronics, and I've only recently started designing and etching PCBs. This is a big step for me, and has opened up many new possibilities.
What's gonna be next? In the upcoming weeks I will try to cover some of the work that I've already done so far, and I'm also gonna by writing blog posts about what's currently on my table. So bear with me while this blog is developing.
