Today I worked on my raspberry pi for class. I got a response from the guide that gave me a link to a forum where people had the same problem. the guide was saying it was a syntax error that you don't need to do -m you can just do pip. I tried it but still had the same result. I tried to go about it with for python 2 but that one didn't work either. I'm not sure what I should do. I may have to find a new way to do it for next class.

Week 13 November 18

This week in class I worked on my pi trying to get google assistant on it. I have been getting some help from a guide I have been reading and have asked the creator some questions on his post. I hope I can get a response or else I may have to try something else. I also saw more guides for people who did in a different way so I can do that if I have to. Next week I am going to still work on my pi but do some more Unix things on my mac.

Today In class we had a group discussion that started with Teslas new Truck line and new car. We talked a bit about presenting and about Mlon musks presenting skill and then about Bill Gates presenting skills. We then talked about end of the quarter stuff and presentations. We also talked a bit about a group of world media people who are coming tonight to talk to us. I won't be able to make it because we have late basketball practice. After that, I had some time to work on my project. I checked to see if i got a response, I didn't get one but did find some other cool projects I want to check out this weekend.

Today In class I worked on my raspberry PI. The plan was to follow I guide I found last weekend on hakster.io. The guide was how to create a rasberry PI that runs google assistant. I started working and was able to finally fix my Google apis. I got the fild on my laptop and transferred it onto my PI. Once It was on my pi I moved on to working on downloading files in the terminal. I made it throught 3 of the 5 commands and on the 4th one I ran into some problems. When I put in the command

env/bin/python -m pip install --upgrade pip setuptools into terminal im getting the error,

/home/pi/env/bin/python: No module named pip.__main__; 'pip' is a package and cannot be directly executed

I sent a comment to the creators email and hope to get a response. I will try and firgure this out this week.

Week 12 November 11

this week in class I worked mostly on my Unix project. I didn't have to much time to do anything for my IOT project. I want to be able to spread my time between both projects equally next week. I want to be able to have something working that I can present within the next week or two. I also want to 3d print and laser cut a case for my PI that can fit my speakers and all of the cords can fit inside the case. Once I have a case and I have my pI running google assistant, then I can start connecting it to other components. Next week In class I want to look how to design a case to 3d print and getting google assistant to work.

Today In class I messed around with some unix commands that I found online. I also watched a video on how to name files, create files and move files in terminal. I didn't read anything in my Unix book. I will do some more reading before we meet again next week.

Today in class I worked on learning all of the commands I learned yesterday. I worked on using the commands in the terminal. I got most of them to work but a few of them I was having trouble with. I also looked online into what happened to ethereum and how it is affecting the other cryptocurrencies. Next class, I will probably read some unix then do some work on my PI.

Today in class I finished some ap us homework that I forgot to finish last night. I then talked to bill about unix commands and the most used commands. I took a picture of the one's bill put for the most useful and then I looked online to get some more commands that are commonly used. I'll list them both below. I then tried them all out and made text documents and moved them around with the commands. Another command that I found was clear which is incredibly useful and makes life so much wasier.

cd

man
mkdir
rmdir
touch

Week 11 November 4 2017

This week we had lots of presentations. We presented to students and teachers from Punahou. We also got a chance to talk to the workers from admissions about content to talk about to potential students. I Got to do a little coding on my raspberry pi and some research was well. I also got to read half of chapter 3 in my unix book.

Today In class We met with students from punahou. I presented my project to a few different people and students and got to hear about what it's like at punahou and what they are doing and are interested in. There were a lot of small groups of people that were walking around and talking to students. I also was able to do some reading and some research on home automation systems and news about google assistant on the phone being able to sync with google home instantly. The idea is you could start a task on your phone and with a voice command transfer it in real time to your google home. This could be like a timer with 3 min left and you can transfer it to your home automation.

Today In class the admissions department was in the elab getting information about elab projects. Almost everyone talked about their projects and the impact it has on the school and on the community. As the talk progressed bill brought up how the other oliver's project with rfid cards. Bill was saying how they would soon some time next year be trying to use rfid card scanners on all of the gates and for check in at the dorms. He said how these cards could be used as a quick way and more secure way of checking in and opening the gates. This ties directly into my project and would be a way that my project could be used for something more than just me. I would be able to be directly involved with something that everyone uses every day. Next class some students and teachers from punahou are coming.

Today in class we worked on our semester proposals. I want to finish my google assistant by the end of the semester. Then I can work next semester on just making components. Making components that work with the google assistant hub is easy once you have somthing to connect them togeather. I also want to finish my unix book by the end of the semester.

Semester one

Initial plan
-My inital plan was to make a home assistant that can interact with all of my other home automation devices.
What I did
-I havent made much physical progress. The 3d printer has been broken so I havent been able to print a body for my rasberry PI. I have dont alot of things on my PI and have done some reading on my Unix book. I want to finish my google assistant home by the end of the semester.
Problems
-I have been having lots of problems coding and dowloading things on my rasberry PI. I havent beena able to get my API and I also havent been able to get node red installed.
Next semester
Next semester I want to be able to have my google home working. I also want to be able to connect it to other devices that i can make with servos and other things.

Week 10 October 28 2017

This week I only had one class of ISR. I mainly tried to get node red onto my PI. I wasnt able to download it. I found come commands to donwload it but when I put them In I was running into errors. For the rest of that class I spent reading the unix book. I am following along with terminal on my computer while Im reading the commands in the book. Next week I want to get node red and read a few more chpaters of the unix book.

Today In class It was a longer period. I spent the first 20 minutes trying to instal node red onto my raspberry pi. I found some code online but wasnt able to get the scripts to donload node red. I then spent the rest of the class on the unix book. I took some notes on some code and saved some screen shots of important commands.

week 9 October 21 2017

This week in class we only had 2 classes and one of them was parents for the parents. In the class without parents, I spent it trying to figure out what was wrong with my pi. I hadn't updated it in a while and something had made the internet for my pi super slow. Now that I know how to fix it I can continue to work on my google assistant. If I don't run into any more errors I should be done with it in a class or two. Then I can move onto seeing if I can use google assistant to control automated parts on Arduino or other iot things on pi. Then I won't have to make my own software to connect all of these components I will already have one.

Today in class I attempted to follow a youtube guide on how to get apps onto raspberry pis and how to activate google assistant so that i can make my google assistant work on the raspberry pi. I didn't get very far. The guide was using the browser on pi to go on google cloud and get the apis. On my Pi I was having trouble with the browser. I had the connection wired and the the Pi wasn't overworking. I updated and upgraded it in the console but It still was super slow. I did some research and found a command sudo apt-get dist-upgrade after I did this and rebooted it worked. I'm not sure what the problem was but now next class I should get some more work done.

Today in class we started by meeting and talking about our projects and what we will be doing in quarter 2. I said that I was going to focus on getting my pi working so that I can present on it then working on the Linux book. I want to have something physical to show how all of the codings that I am doing is working. I also am going to be working with the other Oliver on penetration testing and on the C02 monitoring project with a few other people. I hopefully can tie it togeather with my home automation. Next class I am going to be working on getting APIs for google assistant.

This week In class we had a few speakers talk to our class. The first one was about working together and team management. It was a giving to us by a father of an alumnus who works as KEK. He wanted input on how to improve there visitors center. They want to improve the visitor center so it will appeal to more people. There were many different ideas on how to improve the visitor center and how people think of KEK and the telescopes. Next class, we talked with alumni who has worked in the tech industry and has worked with startups and is now working from home. He talked about how he got to where he is and some tips on how to make it as a computer science major. Next week I can get some work done on my project.
