Android Open Accessory Protocol (AOA) using an FTDI 311/312

In this video, I'll give you a brief overview of implementing the Android Open Accessory Protocol (AOA) using an FTDI 311/312. AOA is a protocol designed by google to allow android devices to connect with a wide variety of external peripherals over USB.  Since the AOA device acts as a host, it is able to connect to most Android devices, even devices that do not have USB host capabilities themselves.  FTDI provides chips that are preprogrammed with the AOA protocol, making it ...

Second Annual DMC Picnic

Second Annual DMC Picnic

DMC employees, friends and family enjoyed fun, sun, beer, and games at the Second Annual DMC Picnic this past Sunday, July 27. We decided to hold our picnic at Linne Woods in Morton Grove, IL, just 20 minutes outside of the city. The preserve was a perfect spot right off of the highway and thankfully near a local store where we were able to grab things like scissors, markers, and extra ice. A great escape from the hustle of city life and the average workday, we were able to enjoy the serene b...

DMC Welcomes Boston New Hires with a Week of Fun

Kevin (DMC Chicago Intern), Ryan and I (both new hires for DMC Boston) all started at DMC on Monday June 16. After arriving, Ryan and I only spent two weeks training in Chicago. All the same, we were welcomed into the DMC family from Day One. For our Welcome Party, we put our competitive spirits to the test with a sport that combines lacrosse, basketball, and bumper cars, well known to any DMCer as WhirlyBall. As a first time player, I was excited just to get my car to go straight and success...

Upping the Ante at DMC's Fifth Official Golf Outing

On what was a beautiful sunny day at the Sydney R. Marovitz Golf Course, eight DMC employees went out to hit the links for the fifth official DMC Golf Outing. The course itself sits right on the coast of Lake Michigan, and is the closest course to the office.  We split up into two teams of four. Team A included Devon Fritz, Eric West, Jeremy Green and myself. Team B was made up of Spencer Glesmann, Rick Rietz, Simon Healey, and Jeff McCormick.  We decided to play in a scramble fo...

Simplifying UI and UX Design with Color Cheat Sheet

Simplifying UI and UX Design with Color Cheat Sheet

A while back I took a poll of the engineers here at DMC, and one of the main concerns the engineers had was that when designing a user interface they did not know what colors to choose. As a User Interface Designer I understand that there can be a bit of decision paralysis when it comes to designing in color since there are an infinite amount of colors! I knew there had to be a way to help engineers view colors as a simple choice. I took a stroll around Google Images for color charts showing ...

DMC Turns Eighteen

It's official! DMC is now legal to vote, join the military, and gamble - not that we are really planning to do any of these things, but all the same it's an exciting and transitory time in the life of DMC. Last year, on the edge of seventeen, we opened our Boston office on the east coast. Over a year later, the Boston office is growing rapidly with 4 new employees, its own holiday party, grand opening party and a host of activity fund events, including heading out to a shooting range....

These three people answered the question correctly: Andrea Gotti of Milan Polytechnic, Adnaan Velji of DMC, and Dan Freve of DMC. Of these, the winner is Andrea Gotti. Andrea solved the problem as follows: Each line of the paper doodle passes through two points. Those points will ...

DMC Ranks #5 in Chicago Bike to Work Week Challenge

Last week DMC joined close to a thousand other Chicagoland companies and organizations to participate in the Bike Commuter Challenge. This is my sixth year participating in Bike to Work Week in Chicago, but my first at DMC. I was excited to share my lively enthusiasm for bike commuting with my coworkers. We normally have a handful of devoted bikers commuting to work, so this was a great opportunity to encourage new riders to get out on the road. Sure, there are risks to bicycling, but ther...

Geek Challenge: Define the Doodling Curve

A graph-paper doodle connects each point on the x-axis with a consecutive point on the y-axis with a straight line. Within a defined boundary, the positions on the x-axis move away from the origin as the positions on the y-axis move toward the origin. The resulting shape fills a defined curving boundary with a pretty pattern. The geek challenge for this month is to define the curve generated by these straight lines. Focusing on the lines in the positive x and y quadrant, select the functi...
