It all started with the desire to build some electronic Geocaches in 2010. So what do you need for that? A lot of enthusiasm, a good idea, and a soldering iron. One of my first electronic caches was an electronic thermometer. You had to bring some ice in order to cool it down, only then you got the coordinates of the next stage.

Once you start to build such systems, you’ll notice that you might need more than just enthusiasm and a soldering iron. Meanwhile, I have learned a lot about embedded computing and I have added a few gadgets to my Arduino craft corner (see photo above).

This blog focuses on some of the difficulties I encountered and describes solutions I came up with. This may be just a twist on how to make avr-gdb usable on the Mac or an in depth description of how to use my adaptation of Peter Fleury’s I2C library to the Arduino framework. In addition, I will present some of my projects in order to inspire you. And finally, I plan to present some tutorial series. The first one will be on debugging. All of that will mainly take place in the Arduino universe.
