You engineers are it. You will be the ones to create the next big thing. It’s done by seeing a problem and solving it. Very rarely if ever is it a businessman who has an idea of what problems exist or how to solve them.
I was told this while in my senior design capstone while finishing up my degree. He nailed it exactly on the head. I’m seeing it at work right now and even more so in a couple of pet projects that just started up here at home.
If the pet project works I’ll blog about it after it’s first successful test. I have questions of if it will really work or not since absolutely no one else has done it. I also have a realization that those in the field are probably trying to get people to fully upgrade than just buy a box to make their current equipment just as capable.
Barron is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.
He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.
