I’m not so handsome and talented as Harvey Keitel, I actually solve people problems.

Quite often people ask me what I do for living, and I always struggle. Am I a programmer ? Web developer ? Software Engineer ? Software Architect ? Technical Lead ? Technical Director ? – I owned each of these title among my carrier and still don’t know what is the best one.

I think my best skill is intuition – sometimes I just know what it’s going to be a bottleneck in software / setup or just know what is the best solution without testing it first. I usually do test it later, to make sure that I’m right.

Anyways – please check my work to see what actual problems I did solved…

Arduino Clock TimeZones and something more

Following with my last project – Arduino clock  – i wanted to extend it with 2 features:

  1. Handling daylight saving time,
  2. Showing up time in different time zone.

Simplest Arduino Clock With 7-digit segment display

From time to time, I’m also working on less “web” related project. This time, a wanted to play a bit with Arduino platform. The task was pretty simple – to build a clock. Yes – these days, we don’t have enough time measuring devices like mobiles, microwaves, computers – I wanted to build another one.

It was my first Arduino project so the task wasn’t  as easy as I expected. In the theory, we need only pass time & data from RTC to 7-Segment Display. Simple isn’t it? I found plenty of tutorials, had so many small issues like – digits wasn’t displayed correctly (mixed cables). I could only display one digit at the time in given position or – same digits everywhere (multiplexing). I couldn’t find shift register in my stock, so wanted to use whatever I already had.
