Upcoming 2016!

It has certainly been a stressful Christmas, 5 exams feels so much more than 4! I feel the extra exam is just a spanner in my revision works but hey! Medics get it a ton worse so how can I complain. I’ve had quite a few requests with the MAX7219 8×8 matrix display, namely a […]

I’ve […]
