A bit about me. By day I am a computer and electronics technician for our local school district. By night I am an electronics and home automation hobbyist. I recently entered the world of 3D printing with the purchase of my Anet 3D printer. I am also a mostly self taught programmer.
I have been fascinated with electronics all my life. Once I found out about home automation and the DIY stuff that goes with it, it was a piece that fit my hobby electronics puzzle perfectly. I do most of my home DIY home automation stuff on the arduino platform. Love it.
Then came 3D printing. You mean I can build project enclosures tailored to each project? I can repair broken things by printing a new part? This was another piece to my puzzle that I never knew was missing until I got into it. With the purchase of my Anet A8 3D printer, I found the possibilities to be endless.
My programming background started in High School with BASIC on Atari computers at school and my Radio Shack computer at home. I have since done programming in a variety of languages such as Visual Basic and C#, a bit of PERL and most recently, pretty heavy on PHP.
