Great thread - thanks to veteran nerdfarmers alike for contributing, and welcome @Mann23! @hildreth from the OpenAg team @ Media Lab, here, & chiming in to help our newcomers who might have similar questions.
As @Webb.Peter & @Riggi pointed out - there’s tons of resources for folks who are new to comb through, and it can get overwhelming. the tiny team at the lab is working on ways to make “Getting Started” with Food Computers* accessible & easy, especially for nerdfarmers without a lot of technical knowledge.
OpenAg’s website page “Build a Personal Food Computer” is where we give curious nerdfarmers a quick-start to building a Personal Food Computer - the smallest scale*.
From there, you can dive into the level of details/complexity that match your skills and enthusiasm!
Hope this helps - keep us @openag posted as you grow!
*n.b. Food Computers (the umbrella term that OpenAg uses) are a type of device, like a PC or a 3D Printer, and refers to all scales of controlled environment agriculture devices that the OpenAg community develops.
