Back from a long blogging hiatus…
I’ve you’ve been following this blog or read a couple of the more recent articles then you know that “IoT” has consumed a lot of my spare-time in the last two years. Hundreds of hours have gone into supporting the NodeMCU firmware project. I’ve been a tool smith, a documentation author, a release manager, an issue tracker janitor, a helpdesk volunteer and variations of all of the above.
What I haven’t been so far is a company founder and owner.
Earlier this year my friend Dani “Squix” Eichhorn and I founded ThingPulse to lift a common serious hobby to a whole new level. It was Dani who initially sparked my interest in IoT, ESP8266 and NodeMCU. While I for some inexplicable reason got pulled into the NodeMCU universe and became a project maintainer he pretty early changed sides to work with the Arduino platform. While I helped lay the ground for other people’s IoT projects Dani churned out DIY maker projects at an impressive rate. No surprise has he since become a well-known and respected figure in the ESP8266-Arduino community. We eventually decided to join forces to prove that the whole is indeed greater than the sum of its parts.
In our spare time we will develop, promote and sell IoT hardware and software for both makers and consumers. We feel that there is a place in this huge emerging market where we, thanks to our unique combination of skills, can shine and offer an excellent value proposition. We’re both experienced (enterprise) software engineers who have helped our respective employers implement countless successful projects over the last 15 years. As we have worked for demanding Swiss and international clients (of our employers) we bring the right mind set and skill set for delivering excellent products to our own customers.
Interested in coming along with us on this exciting new journey?
