• BTLC1000: ultra-low power Bluetooth SoC mit integriertem ARM Cortex-M0 Mikrocontroller

    Der Atmel BTLC1000 Arm Cortex M0 Mikrocontroller mit integriertem Bluetooth Low Energy Transceiver ist gerade angekommen. Schon faszinierend wie winzig solche Chips inzwischen sind.

  • automatic restart of node.js apps via git commit messages

    When updating our node.js applications we usually had to login on the webserver, pull the updates from git and restart the server. To make this easier we decided to write a git hook that would automate the process. The following scripts work in combination with gitlab and pm2. They will pull from git if you […]
