The thing that needs to be made clear is this: C is a permanent fixture. It is not going anywhere in your lifetime. You can use it, or not.

This post is aimed at programmers-in-general, and covers some general stylistic perspectives.

This will be an examination of one of the two key data structures in ManuvrOS: The Priority Queue.

When writing programs (no matter the language [human or otherwise]), you will repeat yourself. Unavoidable. Templates are a C++ feature that allow us to write the form of the code once, and rely on the compiler to replicate it for each unique type we use with it.

This is a brief recount of my experience using the iPack P401 Module.

This post will cover the theory-of-operation of a driver for Microchip's weird and wonderful MGC3130 e-field gesture sensor. I will be using Microchip's Hillstar dev kit for the MGC3130, a chipKIT Fubarino Mini, and MPIDE. But the library ought to work with any other Arduino-esque microcontroller provided it has Wire.h.

This is a high-level overview of MurumLux (Latin: "Wall of light"). It is a demo piece I built using Microchip's current top-of-the-line microcontroller. The chipKIT team wanted something eye-popping and fun to use for the bay area Maker Faire (May 2015). This is what I rolled for them.

In this poast (yes: "poast"), I will show you how to include libraries within libraries in the Arduino IDE and not break functionality elsewhere.

My collection of C++ classes has grown to include a priority queue template. Here is that template, and an example of how to make it do something it wasn't written to do: Calculate statistical mode.

I've been needing this part for a long time now. So I've finally gotten around to doing the design work and making a production-worthy module.
