So I'm hanging with the Higher Education User Group this week in Las Vegas; Alliance 2014. It's been a year or so since I've gotten to Alliance, so it's pretty cool to be back here. I'm also excited in general about working with Higher Education customers. I've only been here for a day so far, but I've noticed some very obvious things already:
I’ve just ported a Python library to drive LPD8806 Led strips to Java.
The only dependency of the library is Pi4j.
The led strip I used was the Digital RGB LED Weatherproof Strip from Adafruit.
I’ve also made this library available on Github: https://github.com/glnds/LPD8806-Java. See Readme for me details
Oracle yesterday (March 7) released version 11.1.8 of Fusion Applications
Some time ago I used Pi4J in one of my Raspberry Pi projects running Raspian. While trying to migrate this project to Arch Linux recently, I was unable to find a Pi4J version for that distribution. In the end I got it running by making a Pi4J version for Arch Linux myself. This tutorial describes how to build Pi4J on Arch.
If you don’t want to build the library yourself, you can just download the build here.
The other night, we were feeding Riley chicken. It's not the greatest thing in the world - it's boiled, shredded, and then blended with water to make a sort of paste. I like to think it's better than the jarred baby food chicken, but in health only. I'm pretty sure they taste equally terrible.
Anyway, we were feeding Riley who was not enjoying her chicken. And Alli decided to encourage her.
"Riley, you have to like chicken. Lots of good things come from chicken. Like chicken nuggets, chicken patties…and pork chops…and…fish sticks!"
