This is one of the many
reasons that I love my job as a developer. Not only can I create cool things for other people, but some of the most amazing things I have made, I have made just for me :). For example, one of my most useful apps is an internal one that helps Jake and I out on a day to day basis. Our users would have zero use for this type of application, but for us, it is invaluable.
All i have to do is point the Raspberry Pi to the webpage, and it shows my information. Works completely without user interaction on startup as well, just plug it in and it will find the wifi and display the page.
One drawback is that it is a bit heavier than I initially thought it would be, meaning mounting it could be a pretty major issue. This baby might just have to sit on a table somewhere...
Unfortunately with this one, I can't end with "hope you enjoy my work!" Being a developer opens up a world of possibilities if you look outside the box a bit and are willing to learn. If this kind of thing interests you, then please, go out and learn a bit about coding- it can be pretty fun! There are so many resources available and people to help you. I really love how this project turned out and it is quite the statement/conversation piece for any room if you are into that sort of thing ;)Original Inspiration: https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/magic-mirror/
