Hey buddy, Welcome to KnowShipp! I’m am so thankful to you for taking time to read the about page.
KnowShipp! is 89% a technology blog (because I know about this stuff only) and 11% about random thoughts/knowledge/jokes which I find worth sharing.
Journey of Blog Name:
When I was in Goa with my friend(Pankaj) in 2014, we discovered so many surreal places and I thought to write about these places while sitting on Chapora Fort watching the Sea. I came home and written a small piece on wordpress about places in Goa and named the blog NoShip because the featured image I chose for the post had Sea but No Ship. Yes, this is true.
I made 2 posts about my travel experiences but I was not a traveller, so how could I continue my blog without travelling. Time passed and I forgot about my blog. NoShip was sunk!
In August 2016, while giving an interview for an start-up in Robotics industry. I found myself so amused with the work and technology they were doing that after happily getting rejected I started googling about trends and technologies in IOT and home automation. Bought all the stuff set-up my lab started breaking things because if you don’t break something, you won’t make anything. I am making small projects now and started to solved common household problems with IOT.
Naming the blog was simpler now, you might have guessed it. I just replaced the ‘NO‘ with ‘KNOW‘ and the ‘Shipp‘ is now sailing in the Ocean of knowledge. That’s how KnowShipp was born. I became the Sailor.
Check the following posts to make one for yourself:

- Rotating servo from 0 to 180 degrees over internet
