Introduction

Welcome

Welcome to my blog! I am starting this as one of my goals for 2019 and I will be focusing on:

  • Productivity - What I am doing and how I am doing it
  • Embedded Systems - An area I am new and will be sharing my discoveries
  • Programming - Programming projects I have worked on and working on now

As I am still learning a lot of things, constructive advice is always greatly appreciated!
