IoT Blog With Robotics & Automation: About Me

IoT blog with robotics & automation by installtekz

Training the next generation to build the future

Hi I’m Ryan Elliott and for the purpose of this blog I may refer to myself as installtekz.

As a young boy growing up in England I showed a keen interest in electronics and computers.

Currently at the age of 36 I still haven’t stopped learning.

I like to know everything I can find on the internet that’s even remotely associated with how technology works.


Now I like to build projects from the electronics level with embedded programming and eventually create networks by using as much open source hardware and software as possible.

Plus I’m a huge linux fan 🙂

My goal with this blog is to teach young people how to begin working with electronic devices to build their very own Internet of Things, robotics and automation projects.


My working life so far I’ve been involved in: Operational Software Testing, Electronics Testing, Electrical Assembling & Installation, IT Assistant and Communications Systems Operator.


I’m not big on the whole social media thing however you’re more likely to catch me on Twitter as I like to keep up with the tech trends there.
