taps

I was lucky to have a talk about brewing beer with Linux, Python and a Respberry Pi chosen for OpenWest 2017. As part of that talk I wanted to put up a quick post with the slides from the talk and links to some of the resources I used. It's also worth taking a look at a previous post about my electric brewery as I include some details and links there as well.

In preparation for the talk I wrote about the system for opensource.com. That turned out to be really popular, and was then mentioned on Hackaday and raspberrypi.org as well. It's probably worth reminding folks to follow me on twitter @docaedo if you want any updates on the next things I'll be doing with the system. It's also a pretty convenient way to reach me if you have questions :)

Working as a developer advocacy program director for IBM, improving how the world of developers perceive our company is my top priority. One of the ways I believe we can make a huge impact is by using our time in front of developers wisely. That means no product pitches at …

I'm sitting here on a plane headed home, finally, after what has been a pretty long week of travel for work. All of it has been good stuff, and even included the opportunity to share the stage with IBMs Chief Digital Officer Bob Lord. During his quarterly "all hands" town …

10 Bills You Should Read

Mon March 06 2017 by Christopher Aedo

I try not to post too much political stuff here unless I think it's something useful and interesting. In this case, I've seen this list of bills proposed in the US house of representatives several places. All the times I've seen it however, it's just text (and often on twitter …

Live on Gitlab

Thu February 02 2017 by Christopher Aedo

Last year when gitlab announced they would offer free site hosting with custom domains (similar to github pages) I decided it was about time I looked into moving this blog. Until today, it had been hosted on a VM running on either Google Compute, OVH, Vexxhost or AWS. I think …

A Typical Brewday

Fri December 30 2016 by Christopher Aedo

While writing about my electric brewing system I thought it would be helpful to outline what a typical brew day looks like with that setup. Since that post was already getting too long I decided to put this in it's own relatively small post.

The FIRST step is to figure …

The Electric Brewery

Sun December 25 2016 by Christopher Aedo

One of my best friends (bones!) sent me an email asking if I'd ever heard of this thing called Hosehead (it's a control system for an electric brewery using open source software called Strangebrew Elsinore). I had never heard of it, but had been thinking on and off for some …

One night a few months after we moved into our place in Portland we noticed a bit of a skunk smell. It wasn't too strong, and we just assumed there was a skunk in the woods and something had scared it. It didn't take too long for the smell to …

IRC, the secret to open source success

Sat December 19 2015 by Christopher Aedo

[Yes, this is another IRC post - this one was written for IBM's OpenTech blog, but I thought I'd add it here since my blog tends to be thin on updates ;) Anyway, hope you enjoy it!]

Effective communication is key when collaborating on an open source project and being reachable is …

Regarding IRC

Mon August 17 2015 by Christopher Aedo

All the work I do with OpenStack is coordinated through mailing lists, IRC and design summits every six months. For quite a while I handled IRC by just keeping a screen up running Irssi on a VM on some cloud or another. That approach was quick and easy, and kept …
