Kit Log #050: First blink images created

We made the images for the first blink guide. This update seems tiny, but it plays a big part in that guide.

Kit Log #049: Bowie build series

Kit Log #049: Bowie build series

With the progress of the build guides coming along, today we took a pause to figure out how all of those pieces would fit together into a series. The result of this brainstorming session was seeing that there will likely need to be three series: a solo Bowie build (for makers building it on their own), a team Bowie build, and an educational group Bowie build. The edu build would be broken into phases, as seen. It looks simple, but there was a lot of erasing and re-writing while figuring this out on the whiteboards.

Since on our system everything has been installed from various experiments and projects, we had to go back and be diligent in tracing the steps to install everything properly. The goal is to install all the software and Bowie libraries properly to get to a first blink. Today, the initial descriptions were written for this process. The next step will be to gather and make the thumbnail images for the steps. Then, running the .csv through the python script to publish as a page on the site.

Kit Log #047: Chassis build instructions

Kit Log #047: Chassis build instructions

The chassis build instructions are now live. Check it out here. Many thanks to Beck for writing the descriptions for the steps.

The nice photos of the CAD models with annotations and arrows on them, these were made before the kit log began. The most of that work was done in September, October, and some November 2019.

There will also need to be an additional page for the build instructions, consisting of all the pieces. This is also logged in the google sheet. Python to parse this and then output html is what will be needed next.

In addition to posting the backlog of kit log and various updates today since the beginning of February, we also updated the chassis instructions in google sheets to include the proper image file names. As well, we updated the brain kit instructions in google sheets with the most recent bugs that were found. Next kit log we will be revisiting the mega list about progress on all the electronics kits, to see what is remaining to complete.
