SoPra Review

The SoPra (“Software Projekt”) is a module at Ulm University which requires groups of students to develop a software project over the course of a year. The module is mandatory for all students doing a computer science, software engineering or similar software development oriented programs. This includes “Informationssystemtechik”, the program i am doing. I did the project in the last year with a group of five fellow students and took the chance to try some new strategies, for the software development itself as well as for the project management. In this blog post i will review the differenct aspects and summarize my experiences. If you are interest in the actual code, it is available on github: github.com/SoPra-Team-10.

Generating CMake projects from STM32CubeMx

For configuring an STM32 microcontroller there is arguably no easier way to configure the chip and periphery than using STM32CubeMx (in the following refered to as CubeMx). Sadly it is only possible to export the code to a small selection of proprietary IDEs, it is neither possible to use the Code with one of the important C/C++ IDEs (CLion, QtCreator, Code::Blocks, Visual Studio,…) or to use any editor (vim, emacs, nano,…) and an external build tool to build the project. This also limits the ability to integrate the build process in some form of continuous integration.

Toolbox-Plane PCBs

After having several problems with our last PCB-Stack used in the Toolbox-Plane (in no particular order: large size, problems with the mcu not starting, non standardized platform) we decided to design three new PCBs for our plane.

New website!

As you might have guessed after visiting this site i have a completly new website! After i had more or less abandonded my old website (i still believe the concept is really cool, so it still is available at aul12.me/old) i tried to develop a new website from scratch but pretty soon realized i’m not a designer. So in the third iteration i started using Jekyll as a static site generator.
