I just got my acceptance letter to present a premiere session at TCEA 2017 in Austin, TX this year. I will be presenting Arduino and the Internet of Things on Monday, Feb. 6 at 8:00 am. You will need a premiere admission to attend as this is a half-day “hands-on” session. I would LOVE to see someone there who is also a blog reader. Speaking of which, I know I have been remiss in posting but this year has been incredibly busy. I have nine (NINE!!) preps this year. Seven classes, two of which run two classes concurrently. Needless to say I am very overloaded. Also, my fledgling music career is moving forward. Fifth Sparrow completed their summer tour of West Texas and also played the Whitesboro Peanut Festival. So before you chide me for inattentiveness, please be aware that I am not just being lazy.
