My projects

When someone works for a significant time with a variety of technologies certain need for self-realization becomes evident. This is the reason I embark on little weekend projects that help me to stay in touch with my inner geek. They usually involve some kind of automation, getting into a new technology or even a completely new field of work. It is also a great way to introduce myself to new stuff, exploring the possibilities of so far unknown things to me and possibly enrich my life in unforeseen ways.

When I get into a project anything can happen. They often require some degree of research and may involve some other people as well. It is these interactions that often result in awesome experiences that I find worthy of sharing. I hope that the following projects will inspire you to try them yourselves and even improve upon them. If this happens please come back and share your story with me – I would love to hear back from you. That being said I invite you to browse my collection.
