Let's stay in contact

Welcome! and thank you for visiting my little home on the web. I would love to tell you more about my journeys in tech and running. I mostly write about what I learn from running long distances and building large scale web applications. I also enjoy reading your email responses.

Thank you, Chris

IIoT is simple (and can be cheap… shhh, don’t tell Allen-Bradley, Siemens or Inductive Automation.) Yes, the Industrial Internet of Things is simple. Measure, analyze, and react.

Measure - Many machines don’t record simple metrics like widgets per hour. Put a photoelectric sensor at the end of the conveyor belt and start counting.

Analyze - Load Elasticsearch and Kibana onto an old laptop.

React - Look at the Kibana dashboard and make some decisions based on what you see

I fell in love with running after I committed to running a 5k everyday during the month of September. Now I'm training for my first Marathon on October 1st, 2017.
