re: 10 Great Programming Projects to Improve Your Resume and Learn to Program VIEW POST


I like to make something I "need" like my air quality monitor. Neil's cool "pirrigator" project is another good example.

Or an extension of work stuff. Something we don't need but I thought would be cool. Taking a school project to the next level is also something I've done in the past.

Just some more ideas.


this is really cool! and practical too!


Cool. I do projects like this as well. Have an aquaponics control and monitoring system I built for a friends system, based on raspberry pi.


Woah! That sounds really cool. What are you growing?

It change every few months but has 4 growbeds, and a few strawberry towers. The fish tank has 60ish large tilapia, and total water volume of the system is 800 gallons.

The monitoring system, monitors the solar power, when it switches to AC back up, updates a graph dissolved oxygen, pH, water temp, outside temp, and greenhouse temp.

Once a day it also automatically tops off the sump take with any needed fresh water using a water level sensor and a solenoid valve.

the pi hosts a web server with grafana to display the data

You should write a post about it. I can't be then only one that likes reading this kind of stuff. 😃

Thats really cool! and quite practical. Like the other person said. Maybe you should write about it!


Love it! Always good to see what other people are doing!
