This project aims to get the room temperature and humidity using a digital humidity sensor. We will be using a DHT22 sensor for this project.Read more
This project aims to display text using a 16 x 2 LCD Display. Having the ability to use an LCD display will surely come in handy for future projects where I will need to provide visuals.Read more
This project aims to introduce Arduino in the most basic way that is fun for kids. My kids are into Mario Bros. and the best way to pique their interest is to play some Mario Bros. tones.Read more
In 2010, I got myself an Arduino Duemilanove, here is the link to my post https://nhymbe.net/arduino/. I got interested in learning about it and wanted to see what can I build with it. I know I have a decent knowledge of how to code in C/C++ and a decent knowledge of electronics which I think would be enough to start learning Arduino. Unfortunately, life got busy, so I never had the opportunity to delve deeper into my Arduino projects.
Fast forward to 2023, while cleaning and inspecting my belongings, I stumbled upon the Arduino and its accessories I purchased 13 years ago. It reminded me of my initial enthusiasm and curiosity about exploring its potential. When my children saw it, they were curious and asked what it was. I explained that it was a device I wanted to try out long ago, but life got busy, and I never had the chance to explore it fully. Now, seeing their interest, I’m considering giving it another shot and involving them in discovering its possibilities together.
Join me as I start to re-learn Arduino. I will document this learning journey for you to follow our progress. Feel free to reach out if you have any suggestions or questions, or need assistance.Read more
I was going through my stuff, looking for a USB cable to attach to the HDD Dock Station so I could read our friend/neighbor’s HDD. Guess what I found? An Arduino Mobile platform DFRobot 4WD that I bought in 2010, an Arduino Duemilanove, a Lady Ada Pshield, and an L298N motor driver.
I remember during that time how the Arduino piqued my curiosity, and I wondered if I could build a robot, just like many others have done. I was able to go as far as getting it to follow a line. However, I had lots of ideas that I wasn’t able to work on.
Maybe this year I can rebuild it, as my son and daughter became curious when they saw it.
I recently started exploring Django and Flask to determine if I could migrate my application to these frameworks. However, as I hadn't coded in Python in a while, I decided to create a small program to refresh my skills.
Occasionally I get asked about what app I use or install on my work laptop or smartphone. So here we go, I am putting up a list of apps that I have and use for my work as an IT professional. This list is not a must-have recommendation, I am just sharing what I use and if you are interested you can just simply click the links. If you think I need to add an app to my list please leave a message below.
Occasionally I get asked about what app I can recommend installing on a tablet for kids. I do not recommend apps, but I usually tell them what apps we install on our kids' tablets. There are so many great apps out there, paid, and free for children of every age level. It is up to the parent to choose which one to pick that will work for their child.
My wife was browsing the web and was complaining about Ads taking over web pages ruining the experience. All she wanted was to read the blog and Ads just keep popping up and she will need to scroll down so many times.
This made me think about Nhymbe. I recently enabled Auto ads without looking into how it would affect user experience. The Auto Ads in Google Adsense make it easy to set up ads on your website. The downside if you don’t set it up is a not-so-good user experience just like what my wife pointed out when browsing another website.
I hope that after making changes to the settings, the user experience of guests is better and doesn’t get in the way of getting the information they need.
These are my notes as I am learning Laravel. Its gets overwhelming looking at the documentation and tutorials so I made this post.
