I’m getting old. I also like to make techie things that involve a lot of steps. But I can never remember how I did what I did the next day.

So this blog was born. I am trying to form the habit of documenting my projects. And once I have them documented, I might as well share with everyone, right?

I have to let you know that I am not by any means an expert on most of the stuff I will put posting here! Teaching English as a foreign language is my profession (well, “profession” might not be the right word for a dancing monkey’s work).

I plan on writing about programming (mostly Python and C), gadget building with Arduino and other dev boards, making more complex gadgets with Raspberry Pis and other SBCs, maybe a little woodworking, and probably some teaching stuff, too.

If you have a question about anything, leave a comment somewhere. If you want to contribute an article, send me an email, even especially if you think your particular subject might not be a good match for Maker WS.

Oh, right. Maker WS… What does the WS stand for? Workshop? But that’s two words. It stands for WaiShi (外師), which means foreign teacher in Chinese. Kind of sounds cringy now that I write it out, but luckily, nobody reads about pages!
