Being A Little Agile

It has been a while since I wrote starting up, I have been busy with my business (which is a good thing). When I started Bit Space Development I set out to learn. If I was going to start a business and fail, I would have learned about failing. If I built something that was sucessfull I would have learned how to succeed. What I didn’t anticipate was how much I would learn in such a short amount of time.

Starting Up

I gave another awkward speech to students at Red River College recently. This might not be awkward to most people but I’m not used to it. The topic was jumping off a cliff or doing what I did and jumping off a shit load of small hills.

The talk was for entrepreneurship students in the Business Information Technology program at RRC and is about building your network of mentors, gaining support and taking a leap of faith.

Banana Pi D1 Review

The Banana Pi D1 is probably the coolest dev board I have received lately. It comes form the Banana Pi folks but it is something all of it’s own. At first I wasn’t sure what I was getting but I was pleasantly surprised when I saw it was an open source IP camera. The device is tiny, 38mm x 38mm squared with a small camera hanging off of a ribbon cable at the top.
