At ELCE, Neopenda’s Teresa Cauvel explained how her team built a low-cost neonatal wearable for developing countries using an Intel Curie running Zephyr. The Zephyr Project is still a babe in the technological woods, so it’s only fitting that the open source real-time operating system is driving an innovative wearable solution that aims to improve […]
In OwnCloud, we can add external storage as ownCloud storage devices to extend the storage capabilities of the local server. In this tutorial, I will show you how to enable an external storage or drive in ownCloud 9.
For many of us 2016 flew by, and we didn't complete all our New Year's resolutions or mark everything off our "2016 To Do" lists. I didn't have nearly enough time to play with the Raspberry Pi this year, and my list of projects I want to do keeps growing. In this article I've rounded up 8 recent Raspberry Pi projects that I haven't made yet, but that made it onto my "2017 To Do" list.read more
Total War: WARHAMMER [Official Site] has plenty of larger-than-life units in its battles. There's massive beasts, demons and even steam-powered tanks that can change the tide of battle. In a class above all that, unique leaders can possibly change the tide of whole battles. Following that tradition, Grombrindal joins the other Legendary Lords, such as Karl Franz of The Empire, and can lead the Dwarfen faction and fight under its banner. This DLC adds special quest lines exclusive to the character as well as unique gear and abilities that he can use in-game.

I’m CEO of Moodle, a learning management system. It's a piece of software that is like an operating system for education. You can add and remove tools, and you can build an environment for learning. The teacher usually controls it. The students are usually going through activities set by the teacher, although that's not always the case. It doesn't just have to be like that. It's ultimately a place where you'll collaborate and work together and learn from each other.
I started off making up this job because I was solving problems, bit by bit. There's a lot of things involved in that, but ultimately, it's glueing together a lot of different skills that I learned from a lot of different people, and solving problems in a bigger way.
