Early oxygen levels contribute to brain injury in extremely preterm infants

Our article “Early oxygen levels contribute to brain injury in extremely preterm infants”, in which I am co-first author, was published in Pediatric Research and is now online at https://doi.org/10.1038/s41390-021-01460-3

This paper was definitely not a preterm baby, as it took almost four years from concept to publication. It is also my last pending contribution to the field of neonatology, but who knows what the future will bring.

PCB prototype manufacturing review – 3-way shoot-out

Disclaimer: PCBWay provided free PCBs for this review. No other compensation was provided. PCBWay did not request nor receive favourable treatment.

Laying out the board in KiCAD.

The following is a 3-way shoot-out review between 3 PCB manufacturers: PCBWay and JLCPCB in China, and Oshpark in the US. I uploaded the same Gerber files to each of them. I’ve reviewed both the order process and the finished product. You can download my KiCAD files (warning: I used the development nightly version) from Github: https://github.com/rockola/stomp-breakout/

FizzBuzz in Common Lisp

FizzBuzz is a famous recruitment interview question for programmers.

Write a program that prints the numbers from 1 to 100. But for multiples of three, print “Fizz” instead of the number and for the multiples of five, print “Buzz”. For numbers which are multiples of both three and five, print “FizzBuzz”.

I imagine it can be used to weed out the ones who lied about everything on their application, since it is not exactly brain science nor rocket surgery. Continue reading “FizzBuzz in Common Lisp”
