I have self published my first book Robotics Programming 101. For this book I used CreateSpace for the soft cover and Kindle Direct Publishing for the Kindle version.
All in all it was a good experience. I had more issues with formatting than I did writing the actual code and copy for the book. I was able to hire an editor and illustrator on oDesk to help with editing and cover art.
I enjoy WordPress for ScottPreston.Com, but for Scott’s Bots.Com, I’ve decided to go with my own custom version of the web site.
The reason is that I wanted to do too many things with the site and was forced to look for so many so-so plug-ins. So rather than do that I just coded what I needed and so far so good, it actually give’s me some practice with my PHP skills, which I enjoy.
I’ve put together this video showing you how to hack a servo. It’s great for those that want to buy an in-expensive standard servo and convert it to a continuous rotation servo. For more video’s like this, go to www.roboticsed.com.
