    Wrote a cool app/service/daemon for time entry with badges and a scanner over the weekend. Uses a cheap laser scanner, a little python and the rest is a pair of Node apps which forward upstream to an LMS system somewhere. It all sits on a Raspberry Pi 3 and I'm printing the cover for that now. Good-looking interface, logging and such.

    This was my weekend project

    Sadly, I am not a nodejs fan so there was a bit more effort involved :)

    Is that Java-based?

    If I break out the C++ compiler it is serious :)

    I'm actually attempting to compile... Cura. One of the build preps by itself took six hours to run.

    Learning python and Raspberry Pi 3. Hope to someday build cool apps on my free time.

    You could try writing an OctoPrint plugin. They use Python/JavaScript/HTML/CSS and an occasional bash script. They're not too tough. The hardest part is getting your mind around venv and how Python does that. Pretty sure OctoPrint's development page takes you through the process.
