After running Etching Pathways for a few years, I have decided to move it to my own domain. The idea will be the same, where I post about topics that interest me and projects that I have worked on. I have been a bit quiet over the last few months, this is due to me changing jobs and trying to find a new path for my career, where I can accomplish the goals that I have set out for myself.
One of the reasons for the move, is that I am starting to venture out of permanent employment and into contracting, specifically National Instruments LabVIEW Automated Test Development. This is an area of electronics that I enjoy, where I can use tools that I believe in and support and where I think I can make a difference.
I am half way through my first contract doing test development for an RF company, and so far it is going really well. I am enjoying the work, enjoying the industry as well as enjoying the flexibility that contracting offers.
Another area that has been taking up my time is putting together a presentation for the UK CLD Summit to be hosted at the NI UK and Ireland headquarters during May. It is a project that I have been thinking about for some time and am making some good progress. The current goal is to do angular measurements of a mirror using LabVIEW Vision Development Module. Once I have everything working and my presentation complete, I will do a more in-depth post about it.
I also have a few other ideas to write about which I hope I can put together soon. To get to my new website and blog, please head over to www.labvolution.com.
