Since I was a kind I was interested by computes. RAM, CPU, … all of those words were know things for me. This is actually a kind of heritage from my father. He stated with the reparation of pc’s and now I continue 🙂 .
An other passion from me is electronics (or almost everything that has buttons).
Sometimes good, sometimes bad: I like to know how things work. Every time I had a toy that makes noise, has a led, or similar I did need to open it (with mixed results 🙂 )
This is also the reason why I like the Arduino platform so much, easy, open source and not to expensive.
Most of my personal projects do involve an Arduino or a Raspberry pi.
