Below are some examples of hobby projects I have been working on.

HTTPtoMQTT

HTTPtoMQTT.ineptum.dk allows your to easily turn HTTP requests into MQTT publishes and MQTT publishes into HTTP requests. This enables you to easily bridge a HTTP REST based application to an MQTT application. MQTT is a light weight messaging protocol often used in home automation and IoT devices.

This project was build since I wanted my Google Home to communicate to my Home Assistant home control platform, but I didn't want to expose my Home Assistants web platform directly to the internet.

HTTPtoMQTT is build on Ruby on Rails 5 using a test driven development approach.

RaspberryPiHQ

I love embedded eletronics and playing around with linux. That is why I think the Raspberry Pi is the best thing since sliced bread. I wanted to share my endeavours into the world of the Raspberry Pi which is why I started the RaspberryPiHQ blog.

With more than 30,000 monthly visitors, RaspberryPiHQ is by far the most successful hobby project I have created so far. Its build on a vanilla Wordpres with a focus on content. The blog posts are created when ever I try something new with the Raspberry Pi.

Brewalizer

When I started brewing my own beer I wanted to learn much more about what makes up a good beer. I wanted to be able to answer questions like - which type of beer uses which type of malt, yeast and hops? and how much hops is too much hops?

I figured the best way to learn about beers and how to build recipes was to make a beer recipe calculator. The Brew-o-Matic is my beer recipe calculator on brewalizer - its build in Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, JQuery and Javascript.
