Your First 3D Printed Part

Today’s post is about creating your first 3D printed part. I’ve recently started playing with 3D printed parts using a PolyPrinter 3D printer. With the PolyPrinter, learning 3D printing was much faster than I imagined, and very easy to do. If you’re just starting out, I highly recommend downloading a simple project from Thingiverse just… Continue reading Your First 3D Printed Part


Setting Up a Raspberry Pi for Remote Connections

This post covers the steps to set-up a raspberry Pi for remote connections using I was looking for a way to connect to the Pi headlessly (no keyboard, mouse, and monitor attached) so that I could update WiFi settings depending on where the device is. This proved to be a simple and effective solution.… Continue reading Setting Up a Raspberry Pi for Remote Connections

JavaScript’s Async/Await

Introduced in JavaScript standard ES8, async/await offers a new way to handle asynchronous function calls and depreciates callbacks, leading to more readable code. The below example demonstrates how async/await may be used with the ES6 Promise and Promise.all. Let’s say you have three actions you want to perform Of course you won’t actually know when… Continue reading JavaScript’s Async/Await


Machine Learning: A Simple Example

Are we on the brink of the next technological revolution with machine learning/artificial intelligence? I don’t know, but there have surely been some amazing advancements lately. Why not get in on the fun? In this simple example we’ll train a neural network to pick light text or dark text against a user-chosen background color using… Continue reading Machine Learning: A Simple Example
