Radio silence

When I started this blog, I wanted to write regularly with at least a blog post per month, but October has been a really quiet month from me. The reason for the radio silence is that I moved between suburbs in Sydney. I also moved between continents, between Malaysia and Australia. I have also re-joined Microsoft as a Technology Solutions Professional for IoT in the Asia Incubation team. Fun times ahead and the passion for anything IoT related continues.

A recent announcement that got me stoked about was the Microsoft Band. It’s more than just a fitness tracker because as this blog post rightly puts it, it’s the power of IoT on your wrist. I can’t wait to wear one on my wrist.

This device would be a great addition to my Project GetFitY’all. It’s really about the internet of my things when I began this project, and the more devices connected to this project, the merrier it is.  Over time I intend to connect more devices, or sensor gadgets. I also need to replace the mems sensor board because the temperature stopped working. I think I might have “killed” the function. All it returns now are the following:

MPL3115:        Alt. 0.0        Temp: 0.0
MPL3115:        Alt. 0.0        Temp: 0.0
MPL3115:        Alt. 0.0        Temp: 0.0
MPL3115:        Alt. 0.0        Temp: 0.0

No worries, I probably will buy a few other boards just as backup. Meanwhile it’s back to work. Let’s rock on!
