Apparently a new blog is created every second, and I decided to do my part to keep the trend going, so welcome to my blog, I guess.
First of all, my name is Yuriy, and I like making things. More precisely I like all tings robotics, electronics, programming and tinkering. Over time I've collected enough tools to convert a humble one-car garage into a full blown shop, complete with drill press, mini mill and a lathe on one side and an electronics lab on the other. Since my main vocation is software development, I had to learn many of the lessons the hard way, by turning expensive metal into swarf and letting the magic smoke out of countless electronic devices.
I'm starting this blog as a platform to share what I've learned so far, document some of my projects, and most importantly, to learn something in process. The posts will cover various equipment mods and upgrades, electronic gadgets, programming “howtos” and short tutorial. Never the less, the main idea is not to bestow my wisdom upon you, but rather to have a fun discussion. I don't need to sell or promote anything, so this won't be a marketing driven blog with scheduled posts. I will simply write a few words any time I feel like I have something interesting to say.
