Me, at the 2012 Portland Mini MakerFaire.

My name is Aaron Eiche (pronounced “Ike”). I’m a Professional Web Developer in Portland Oregon, and a moonlighting tech hack. My hobbies include: Electronics, Computers, The Web, and Robotics. I’m also intrigued by data analysis and

A little History:

I’ve always love computers and technology, but for a long time I was convinced that I just didn’t have the kind of mind for programming. I was blessed to be given an opportunity that required me to stretch my simple web development skills back in late 2005. Over time I learned to develop websites with PHP and Javascript. Eventually, I figured I could actually do this for a living, and I got full time work building websites and apps. In 2007 I married my sweetheart (woohoo!) and I started messing around with programming microcontrollers. We moved to Oregon and bought a house while I have done freelance and full-time development.


I work for Jaguar Land Rover developing next-generation Infotainment systems. That is, I’m working on the software that will influence what you’ll see in future vehicles. Aside from that, I do consulting for WordPress, Web Apps, and run Conductive Resistance. I’ve done reviews for Digital Trends. I publish projects, commentary, and podcasts that I make here.

I have a question!

Excellent. I like being helpful! I’d love to answer your question (if I can). I’m happy to help, but there are a few caveats to my answering you:

  1. U hav 2 rite real wrds*. Seriously. Please type using English. If English is not your first language, don’t worry about how you’re doing. Just don’t write that txt/lingo junk. Drives me insane.
  2. Don’t email me saying “How could I make traffic signal simulator circuit? Plz send sch, brd, and code”. I don’t want to do your homework. You clearly don’t either. Maybe you should pick a different study focus. However, If you want some help with the logic, or possible approaches, please do email me. I’m interested in finding solutions to problems or projects.

That’s it! Follow those rules and your message will probably get a genuine answer! Shoot me an email at, or you can tweet me at @aaroneiche.
