Moving DaleGi in a Slightly New Direction

How time flies!

It has been almost two years now since dalegi.com said “hello world” to the world, and I have had a nice time writing what I have managed to write on the blog! In this time there have almost been 3000 visitors to the site, and that has been just about enough for me to have the motivation to occasionally post about different things. Without a doubt the most popular posts have been about Bosnian Bureaucratic Wonders, however there is also a lot of interest in my post about the PMSA003 pollution sensor, as well as the Parametric Digital Transducer Loudspeaker. It has been a good creative outlet for me as someone who likes to write, but does not get much of a chance to write anything but code these days!

I have noticed lately I have struggled to find the time and motivation to write which might be due to the style I have tried to keep on the blog. This was one of a resource of information, and a portfolio for myself. I have also noticed a lack of motivation to start new personal projects outside of my day job, which really is a shame!

So with this in mind, I have decided to change things up a bit. From here on out I will try to write more in the style of articles belonging to a series. The series might be for a specific project, or maybe a topic in general. I find that this helps to motivate me not only finish projects, but also write more. I am also going to loosen up a bit with the article content and provide content more in the vein of a thought process, discussion, with the occasional bad joke.

So with this being said, here is to moving in slightly different directions!

University Portfolio

Throughout my degree I conducted a variety of assignments as assessments for various courses at RMIT. As a kind of portfolio, I decided to share some of the work here. Do keep in mind a lot of the work shown here was done through group assignments, so not all the work is mine alone. Code and documents are attributed as such when appropriate.

Introduction to Embedded Systems:

  • Sun Tracking unit. A dual axis servo sun tracking unit controlled by an Atmel Atmega32 with code written in assembler,

Wireless Sensor Networks:

Capstone Project:

 

PollutionPi: Project Proposal for an Indicative Air Quality Index Compatible Raspberry Pi Powered Air Quality Station

As a part of my volunteer position working on air pollution issues at CPI Fondacija located in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, I put together a project proposal for the design and prototyping of an inexpensive air quality station. This prototype would have provided the basis for building a network of air quality sensors that can provide indicative air pollution sensing in Sarajevo and other areas of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The aim was two fold. To advocate for action that curbs the severe air quality issues Bosnia and Herzegovina faces, and to provide awareness on how acute the air quality issue is in the region.

Unfortunately the project never went ahead, but I have decided to publish the project proposal here as I believe the project had merit and I did extensive research that I included in the proposal. I also think it is good to use in the sense portfolio as it shows some of my research and project design capabilities.

Hello world!

I have had the idea milling around for a while to write up about some of the various projects I do at university and in my own time, as well find a home for some of the travel related stuff I have written in the past. I suppose the time has come to actually do it. So consider it done.
