Passport: Nerves; Podcasts
January 14, 2021

What time is it? It's Nerves time! In this busy release, our friends at Groxio continue to explore Nerves in layers. The projects and videos will focus on working with software in layers in a binary clock. This interesting desktop piece will express time, in binary, with LEDs. The book portion of the release will focus on sensors in a sensor hub project that can read sensor values over a network. We'll work on Nerves with Phoenix PubSub, build a circuit with a light sensor, and follow the guidance on a spec sheet to read the sensor from IEx. Get started at Grox.io!

And, while you're still in the mood to do some exploring...
