What is my F***N’ Domain

July 31, 2009

Right now there are some things at the bottom of my what the hell do I want to learn. What follows is not.

I was grazing Ayende‘s (unconfirmed AI System) blog. He’s starting some posts on developing¬† software in a domain he knows.

For the last year I’ve been working on stretching my horizons. Specifically trying to learn how to be a real hacker ;). I need to write about what I know.

My domain is automatic equipment for manufacturing electronics. Motion control, vision systems, power supplies as welders, and environmental enclosures

So I’m going to write software for a Pick and Place System. As development occurs we will be adding software features, mechanical and electrical devices. The key for us is that we are going to do this without any actual hardware. I believe if you check out Progress Before Hardware you will see how were going to try to do this.
