Topic starter  

I'm an electronics and Python programming enthusiast living and learning in the Denver area. I've authored quite a few books for Microsoft, O'Reilly, and others, mostly on VB programming, but in recent times I've switched to Python, a language I'm passionate about. I've also authored quite a few Medium.com articles on various programming topics. I'm the inventor of LucidLights and LucidBrake consumer electronics devices, which use PIC chips at their heart. Today, Arduino and Raspberry Pi Pico are my microcontrollers of choice. Currently, I'm working on a sensor box to detect geomagnetic and geoseismic anomalies. My employment history involves work on some of the world's biggest (at the time) solar fields, where I programmed all heliostats, trackers, and data acquisition systems. Other software I've created helped engineers design wind turbine towers, and to monitor Alaska oil and gas projects. (I much prefer the green jobs!) My most recent books have been on Python for programming various popular calculators, such as NumWorks, TI-84, TI-NSpire, and Casio models. I'm still not sure if "DroneBot Workshop" involves drones, but I do have an FAA license to fly my drone to photograph roofs for my wife who sells solar panels nation-wide to help homeowners save a lot of money. (Write to me if you might be interested in solar for your home!) This forum looks awesome, and sharing what we all learn, and meeting the challenges we all encounter, is a great way for us all to make progress, and to have fun!

Welcome to the forum!

I just scanned your Amazon authors list John and realized that I actually once owned one of the books you co-authored - Visual Basic 2005 Cookbook. 

I think we have a celebrity in our midst, folks!
