Basic design skills, knowledge of Jekyll and GitHub pages, a free evening or two and lots of ideas. Why not make your own Weekend Thing?
We've all got to start somewhere. A blinking LED is the 'Hello World' of hardware programming. Long weekend? Why stop at just one LED?
Life is full of tediously boring tasks. Why not automate them? You could use a new language, or an army of small robots or cats.
If you've got a drawer full of old gadgets, why let them go to waste? Old smart phones can be used for fun hacky projects, and old computers can be repurposed for web servers or whatever you like. You don't need to buy a new gadget!
If you've got any ideas that you'd like to add here, let me know!
I'll be adding new project ideas as frequently as I think of them, but you can contribute via Pull Request on GitHub.
