Debugger Setup with GDB + OpenOCD in Visual Studio Code

Visual Studio Code’s combination of functionality, customizability, and aesthetics makes it one of my favourite code editors. As such, I was set on making it work with embedded development since I was getting started with the STM32 line of microcontrollers. I was following the steps outlined in Mastering STM32 by Carmine Noviello (which is an excellent resource) until it said to use Eclipse, because life’s too short to use software with unnecessary bloat.


The Making of Project Haikuza: Part 2

The format of this series is an outline of my thought process during the development of @thehaikuza. Poetry is hard To write when algorithms Are extremely dumb. I dont want my haiku generator to be a vegetarian chef. There’s nothing wrong with always making word salad, but eventually it’ll have to learn to make fancier things. A poetic risotto would be nice from time to time. Leaving @thehaikuza to make complete gibberish wasnt what I had intended.

The format of this series is an outline of my thought process during the development of @thehaikuza. Haikus are simple Even children can write them maybe programs too? Nothing is cooler than algorithmic poetry. Except for maybe Carl Sagan. I heard he was a pretty cool guy. I was listening to the radio while driving home one Sunday evening, and an ad came up for a university that was submitting computer-generated poetry to a literature competition.
