I’ve done a few rounds of 100 Days of Code in the past, but never really made it past 2 weeks. Part of the reason for that failure is the weekend portion - I don’t like to computer on the weekend since I computer very hard during the week.
I decided it would be a really good use of my time to work on my Indoor Air Quality platform as a part of my attempt at 100 Days of Code. It’s the next step for me in my career, so I need a way to force my effort.
There are two parts to making my IAQ platform successful, the sensors themselves, and the backend system.
Today was focused on getting my dev sensor put together and booted. This one is just sitting on my desk naked, since I have a 3D print tying up my printer right now and I haven’t been able to print an enclosure. I worked on getting some of the baseline items setup for the test sensor, such as:
- Static IP
- SSH Authentication
- Syncthing to copy over code
- Docker install
Tomorrow I will work on starting to pull data from just one of the sensors and spit it out to the terminal via
print() in Python.
