It's been a long time since my last real post, and my sincere apologies for this! With the new baby, a tight work schedule, and dealing with shady characters making fraudulent copyright claims, I've had very little time to post to my blog.
I return today with some exciting news, and a roadmap for the near future.
First, I'm in the process of formalizing a new company called RAD Software Systems. The company leverages my personal expertise and experience in agile software development, along with that of my network of software developer and engineer friends, to provide high-quality software development services at a low cost. You can check us out at http://www.radsoftwaresys.com.
Secondly, I'm working on a new series of blog postings that will show you to add an accelerometer, Lithium-Polymer Battery power, and eventually a Large-format LVDS LCD screen (Laptop screens) to your Gumstix projects. I will provide detailed tutorials on how to accomplish these, and will be selling some of the hardware on the RAD Software Systems products page (http://www.radsoftwaresys.com/content/products)
Finally, I'll be updating the Gumstix Overo Ubuntu distribution, Overobuntu, to Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala). RAD Software Systems will be formally supporting Overobuntu, which means more active development, bug reporting and ticket handling, and more rapid updating to new distributions. We'll be releasing Overobuntu 9.10 by the middle of next week, and from now on will keep Overobuntu updated with the latest versions of Ubuntu.
Keep your eyes out in the near future for more updates! I'll be moving this week into a new house, with a new office and new workshop, so expect the updates to start sometime next week. Thanks for your patience, and all of your support!
Happy holidays to everyone, and I hope this last month of 2009 marks the start of an excellent 2010.
