From medicines to HTML and LED lamps

Written by Lisa 🧑 (deutsch, δΈ­ζ–‡)

Hello everybody, meanwhile I've been here for a month now and tadaaaa... Here follows my second blog. I've learned the basics of HTML and CSS and I'm now getting closer to JavaScript. It is still a lot of fun to write the codes and I am convinced that it is the right thing for me. I first had to get used to sitting in front of the laptop all day long and thus constantly looking at a monitor.

But Thingylabs offers small projects to get my head free of codes and to relax my eyes. So I, a nurse aka "wannabe electrician", was allowed to upcycle an LED lamp. Again something totally different for me and well...

...that turned out to be more difficult than I expected. Especially since I haven't soldered for more than 10 years and my electrical knowledge is just enough to know how to connect a lamp. But one grows with challenges. πŸ˜‹

So I spent half of my working day soldering the LEDs together, then fixing them into a pre-prepared ceiling light. Next I cut a cover for the LEDs out of a plastic plate and the lamp was almost finished. Only it has to glow. But fortunately I got some help for that and voilΓ  Thingylabs has another LED-lamp, which makes the place shine further on. πŸ™Œ
