New project – HitTheHeat


I’ve just created new github repo where I’ll push all my materials / scripts / schemas regarding to the project I started a while ago. This is all about home central heating automation. I’m trying to create a solution that will take care of turning the heating on / off based on heating curve created with data gathered from Atmega nodes.

I’ll keep you posted guys. for now You can check the pre – alfa code of the Arduino app. I’ll add more when I have some more time. You can check it on the github project page: https://github.com/docent-net/HitTheHeat/

Samsung R&D Linux Boot competition – smashed ;) / Concepts github repo created!


During last Linux Autumn conference (check my recap here) I won competition run by guys from the platinum sponsor – Samsung R&D Centre. There were two topics to be covered – each on other interesting aspect of Linux tuning. First one was about polishing Linux security and the second – about speeding up the Linux boot process. I wrote answers to both topics, but the latter was the winning one.

I was asked about my ideas that I used during that competition a few times until then. So after yet another conversation I thought, that maybe it’s time to write those and make them public – why not – I didn’t discover the America – just wrote down some known facts ;)

So – I strongly believe that github is a good place to publish things like that. I created ‘concepts’ repo where I’ll push any ideas that in my opinion is worth of it. Never mind if those are my own concepts or I heard those on some conference. This way I’m publishing my “concepts” notebook from my Evernote.

And one more thing. This competition was awarded with this beauty Samsung Galaxy SIII (yes, it’s only box; I already have exactly the same phone, so this one is landing on E-Bay):
