So I had the awesome opportunity to go to the PCB design workshop in SF the other day and learn about how to make a board from scratch. It was a great day, I felt like I was back in school again. (feels like forever) Anyways, I got to talk to a few people about the project and I even got a dev kit from the Hackaday team!

Tonight I started playing around with it. sad story number 1 is that the studio is Windows only :( So looks like I'll be checking out a new computer. Looks like it's possible on a mac, but not sure if I really want to go down that rabbit hole. make files!?!?! Am I real programmer again? Idk, been pretty happy in python fantasy land. Going to look and see if theres anything I can do about that.

I've also been looking around online at LiPo battery solutions. Looks like this is going to be a must. I really enjoy starting from scratch and learning a bunch of new stuff. I think my next step is to test out some battery storage hacks. I'll be back.
