Quick Takes: Mini Weather Stations

Recently I had a job placement meeting with a student named Todd. He’s in his late 40s.

The beginning of class was a bit rough, and at a few points I think he questioned whether he was going to make it.

Low and behold, weeks later he had more than persevered: his final project consisted of miniature Arduino weather stations and an open source API anyone can use to track climates in their office space.

His favorite part?

“People came to ask ‘the old guy’ questions. That made me happy.”

Todd’s API hard at work.
