While AllProgrammablePlanet blog is no longer online it still remains the stuff of legends. It came out of nowhere and united FPGA enthusiasts everywhere, providing a great community to talk and learn about FPGA’s. It ran for about 18 months under the capable hands of Clive “Max” Maxfield who I had the pleasure of meeting at DesignWest 2013. While browsing the FPGA subReddit I noticed a familiar name and was delighted to come across this really great interview with Max. It’s a very interesting read with some great insights about the history and future of FPGA technology.
Shortly after, as I was putting the final touches on my soon to be released Papilio DUO Kickstarter project I noticed a familiar name again! While scrolling through a list of technology projects to see how mine compares I noticed something odd. A project by “Max & Duane Galactic Enterprises” zipped by and I thought, “Wait a minute! Is that Max and Duane from APP?”. I clicked on the link for a Universal Screw-Block Proto-Shield System for Arduino, r2 and to my great delight, again, there was both Max and Duane in the video! So take a look at both and maybe even show some love on Kickstarter.
