Hello. I'm a noob and have a question about the store. I noticed a email alert warning me to be carefull about making sure that I log on to the correct Element14.com website and not a clone site. So I'm good with getting logged on here. My question is, when I click the "Store" tab off of the top meny bar, it takes me to another website Newark.com.
Is this a valid site? Is it ok for me to purchase items here?
Thanks for the warm welcome and the suggestion of PSOC. I shall go and take a look. As I am so new to coding of this sort, another system seems a little daunting.
I am glad you like the idea of algae. I have a post on my website about the project I have been doing over the last year and a bit. I plan to do another post soon as we have made a number of advancements since this post.
Can I ask you and others, are there any "Guides to learning coding" that you would recommend? Re your suggestion about a blog about the algae world, I would be happy too. I'm off to New Zealand for a wedding next week and so I might mentally write one up while I am there and then post it when I return.
Newark is/was the parent company that started Element 14.
They are in the process of changing the name of everything to Element 14.
Note, you will need to set up a buyers account before they will let you order stuff.
It has been a long time since I learned coding, but I am sure that there are some good sites that layout preferred practices.
I learned coding on a PDP 11-20 using assembly, also have used BASIC, C, Pascal, Ada, and a few other less than known languages.
I would recommend you take some time with the Personal Software Process book. It will show you how to become a very good programmer.
I'm Jack Crenshaw. Some of you may know me for my long-running column in Embedded Systems Development Magazine (now Embedded.com). My columns there have been mostly about math algorithms. I also have a book (Google "Amazon Jack Crenshaw") In other lifetimes I've been an Aerospace engineer (starting with Apollo), an embedded systems engineer (starting with the Intel 4040), a software engineer, a personal computer engineer (Altair, CP/M, Heathkit, Kaypro), a navigation & control specialist, and a specialist in computer simulations. I also wrote the compiler tutorial, "Let's Build a Compiler."
I've been away from embedded systems hardware for quite awhile. Lately, I've sought to get back into the mix. I'm working with the ImageCraft CorStarter (based on the ARM Cortex M3) and the Rasberry Pi. I'd enjoy talking with anyone about projects for the ARM or the Pi.
Or maybe just reminisce about the Good Ol' Days.
I remember your columns well. They were always a good read and full of useful information.
Welcome to Element 14. You clearly have the experience to help a lot of the younger/newer folks using the site.
I look forward to exchanging information and war stories.
Hi, Dab. Looks like we've been down a lot of the same roads.
Welcome to the element14 Community Jack, we are excited to have you!
Hi, my name is Devin Sheppard. I am new here. I discovered Ben Heck by chance and that lead me to this site. I have always been interested in tech stuff just didnt really know where to learn about it. Now Im never leaving.
Glad to have you Devin, welcome!
My name is Carl and I work for Atomic Energy of Canada as a R&D Technologist. I hope to learn about new ideas to help with my projects and hope to provide expertise whenever that is possible.
Welcome cneggers we are looking forward to your participation.
Hi Carl, I have a friend in Toronto named Dave. Do you know him? Just kidding. We are always joking with each other about being Canadian and American. Glad to have you here. Im new and know a little about electronice but not much. Excited about learning more.
My name is Omar Ortiz. I work in the satellite communications industry and have always loved electronics. I became interested in Raspberrypi a few months ago but did not have the time. Now a friend has given me a free raspi he never used and now I don' t have any excuses to not work on Raspi.
