About wisar

In a previous life I had extensive IT leadership experience including nine years as the CIO or CTO for a multi-billion dollar global division of a Fortune 500 consumer products company.

In my current life I am designing and implementing solutions that exploit single board micro-processors crossing the physical interface between the computer and the real world. Chosen platforms are the Raspberry Pi and Beaglebone Black single board computers running either Debian or Arch Linux and a variety of Arduino microprocessors. All integrated with a wide range of sensors, relays, and motors. Languages and environments include Node.Js (Javascript), PHP, Python, and the Arduino IDE (C++). Any required circuits boards are designed with Fritzing for FAB'ing in China. Also exploiting 3D printing for project needs with custom designs done in Sketchup.
