In our blog you can expect blog posts about technology and business topics, of course about the Raspberry Pi, but also a wide variety of topics related to Industrie 4.0, IoT, and machine learning - for example about the popular MQTT protocol, Python and Linux embedded development, and much more. Blog entries are not scheduled and not in particular order - the topics are an eclectic mix of what comes up in real life of a company engaged in machine learning & Raspberry Pi embedded adventures.

My (Max') attitude is to post about topics which take up significant time for research and experimentation, and which are not well-documented elsewhere. And of course, also some rather emotional topics about how to do business properly.

If you resonate with what I write, my advice is for hire in the form of consulting. I love to rant about bad user interface and business design, and brainstorm workable solutions with you. Possibly the best money you will ever spend.

Dealing with NIL in JSON::Any in Crystal Lang

Von Maximilian Batz | 2020-05-30

One of the challenges when developing with Crystal is that it is not as forgiving about data types as, say, Python or Ruby. nil will keep you occupied. The following error message: cast from Nil to String failed, at /usr/share/crystal/src/json/any.cr:220:5:220 can be solved by: # cast to string, THEN check if it is nil if […]
