Tetris inspired, mikroBlocks is all about quickly adapting to what comes next and figuring out how to fit it into your existing situation as best as you can. It’s about benefiting from the unexpected.
Because it’s never the right moment to start anything. Opportunities keep popping up and you’re either too tired, not quite prepared, or in the middle of something else. Yet, if you want to grow and have a great career, you’ll jump at the chances you are being given.
Take Aleksandar, the intern who made mikroBlocks: He walked into our building as a customer, to buy some click boards. When he saw we had an intern’s lab, he didn’t hesitate to join, even though he already had a lot of plates to spin:
Aleksandar is a full-time Computer Science student already involved in professional Android development projects and embedded projects as well.
Unrelated to his studies, he mastered his PICs and ARMs a few years ago, in his spare time, as a hobby (with mikroC, EasyPIC and EasyMx). And guess what? Internet of Things emerges and everybody’s looking for engineers with skills for both embedded and Android development. Suddenly Aleksandar’s expertise is in demand.
Seizing opportunities as they surface, not being afraid to sort things out as you go—that’s the mindset appreciated here in MikroElektronika.
Take a few minutes out of your day to review the project on Libstock, the code might teach you something about designing game mechanics on MCUs. If you already own a mikromedia 5 for Tiva, alter the code, introduce new shapes or rules.
More projects from our intern’s lab coming up.
