So I took a one week vacation last week, to relax, learn and code. Now guess what I did? Turns out, three days at the beach of Schönhagen (Baltic Sea) are quite enough, so the next three days, I went and refreshed my higher math skills, using the materials and videos of about 15 lectures from http://ocw.mit.edu (6042 was quite funny). Now why would you care? Well, you probably don't. And while that was fun, there was one more thing to do during this vacation:
Today, I released the code for my Arduino NeoPixel Server project, an embedded, wireless server to control WS2812 LED strips or rings using a simple website. Hardware-wise, it uses the Adafruit CC3000 shield and a 2.9m strip of LEDs, connected to an Arduino Leonardo. More information on the build and the source code can be found here: http://www.helgames.com/neopixel-server-arduino-c. For questions and discussions about the project and its development, feel free to drop me a line in the comments.
Today I forked the Adafruit CC3000 library for Arduino, to get my local changes to said library into the open. The GitHub repository can be found here: https://github.com/helgames/Adafruit_CC3000_Library. The changes are mainly concerning binary size, as the Arduino project, I have in development, would not fit onto an Arduino Leonardo otherwise.
