Saying hello to the Internet of Things!

A while back I signed up for Microsoft Developer Program for Internet of Things ( #iot for more info ). As much as I love exploring new things this was extremely exciting thing for me.

I have always had the curiosity to know more and try to hack things my own way. Even as a kid I had an investigative mind which always tried to discover more about how everything works. You can imagine this curiosity by the fact that I got severe electric shock as a kid, when I tried to cut a live wire from "Clothes Iron". This curiosity grew more and more in me, to a point that I did an engineering degree (Yes! I was born with an engineer's mind). I have always been interested in hacking different devices to make something more useful out of it.

Gif animation using ImageMagick Command-Line

I have used GIFs in a number of presentations I have done and they are very useful if, like me, you are working with images/data which changes over time. Luckily I have found a very easy method of converting an image sequences into a GIF.

All you need is a working installation of ImageMagick.
