I’m so happy to be one of the authors of the new book Maker Pro edited by John Baichtal. Maker Pro is a collection of essays by makers who have gone pro by starting their own businesses. Last year John asked me to write an essay about my experiences, and I happily penned a piece called “The Power of Constraints”. In the essay I talk about how I got started making and how the technical limitations and constraints of microcontroller programming were the fuel that fed my fire. It’s a great book, so consider buying it on Amazon. I’m truly honored to be among some great hardware hackers and makers.
