Changes to The VFD Collective & important & cool things to know about. What’s coming next to Fluorescence?
“Heartwarming tunes of a cozy autumn Sunday morning in your favorite coffee house that make you feel like you are on an adventure with your best friends far far away from home.”
This blog post is part of the Wander & Listen by VFDCo blog post series where I write little guides of magical places I have traveled to, while sharing a perfectly mood-matched Spotify playlist. This time, I’ve visited three places in the Swiss Alps - two lakes and one hiking trail in fall, accompanied by my Fall Campfire playlist.
See what’s new in Fluorescence firmware version 2.3!
We use C++ to learn all the essentials and beauties (did I really just say that?) of object oriented programming. The language supplies us with tools to create classes, methods and everything that comes with it, like inheritance and polymorphism. Based on our previous brief knowledge of structs in I call it ‘Plain-C’, we’ve developed an understanding how classes work. But can we write object oriented code in plain C?

Until now, we have always been working with a very limited set of characters when creating our programs in C. The ASCII encoding (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) consists of 128 characters in total with 95 of them printable and 33 non-printable.
Just a warm hello from me. It's been a long time since I have made some public blog posts or announcements. So here I am now, with a few really exciting things to announce. Let's get right into it.
OpenVFD/Fluorescence Firmware Version 3
Berlin. It's one of those days in January where most of the people just get up and go to work because they really have to. Not that it's freezing outside. No not even close. Just the grey, dreary sky and the light drizzle going on, probably for weeks again, already...
OpenVFD incorporates a full Arduino® Uno® compatible platform and is built upon the Arduino® environment. The code is written in Arduino® C for everyone to understand, to take apart and to participate.
We show you how the OpenVFD software works!
Hey, we are
The VFD Collective
By now you probably know that we create sparkling hours. In fact that’s not the only thing we do.
We want to inspire makers, designers, artists and all the colorful creatives. We believe in open source and we publish open source project ideas for makers.
Free things are great, right? We promise every code line written by The VFD Collective is open and we keep all essential hardware bits open and free.
