My Current Activity
Attending openHPI course Linux for Everyone (in German, starting 12 Feb) .

New
Completed a new experiment Raspberry Pi receives Arduino BMP180 Sensor Data via XBee Mesh Network (openHAB,Node-RED,C). This was an exiting experience handling various byte array conversions between Arduino (C) and Node-RED (JavaScript).
This experiment is also related to my openHAB Home Automation Make Project, to further embed external sensor data and other means of communication.

VSCode
Visual Studio Code with openHAB extension, is used to remote edit the openHAB configuration files.
Define the remote folder in Windows explorer (\\192.168.N.NN\openhab-conf), start VSCode and open the remote folder. The structure is listed and ready to create new or change configuration files.

Raspberry Pi Desktop
Installed Debian with Raspberry Pi Desktop on an old Sony vaio.
Quite interesting as have been using Windows (up-to latest version 10) for so many years ... lets see how this goes when using a bit more.

ABMaterial
Example application SBrick control Lego Power Function running on a Raspberry Pi.
The application uses an SBrick. The communication between the Raspberry Pi and the SBrick is via Bluetooth. The ABMaterial Custom Component noUiSlider has been enhanced. Enhancing this solution is planned as SBrick are working on an adapter to connect to the Lego NXT/EV3 motor family.
