Started with computers around 1977. Learned about 80 programming languages for everything from embedded processors to big iron.
Got interested in home automation in the 2000s and already have a SmartThings system with webCoRE automations. Started with Home Assistant in 2020 (very recent) in part because of the SmartThings integration that let me bridge the two systems without recreating everything from scratch.
Oh, and I’m a minister with DisciplesNet, an online church with attendees in about 200 countries now. As well as doing ministry-type things, I keep the website, social media, and local office running.
