I'm thinking to build a project just for the community. It could be anything. Pick one.

 

I haven't really got a clue as to what it would be, but I think it would be fun to build something that would be very useful. So what could it be?

 

I have been getting good results lately with encrypted transmission over cheap NRF radios. So I have an idea brewing of encrypted sensor network that can not be sniffed and where packets also are authenticated in order to remove possibility of replay attacks. This particular subject is particularly interesting for me right now.

 

But I think it would be fun to do something that community finds interesting as well, instead of just working on something I find interesting for myself. I'd have to admit I'm not that good at putting my stuff out there..

I don't think it works like that. You do something that you want to do. That fact that someone else might think it is useful is secondary. Do what you do best - your best might just not be putting things up on the web - it may work for some, but not all.

What "community" ?

Top Tips:

  1. How to properly post source code - see: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment... - also how to properly include images/pictures
  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected
  4. Difference between a crystal, and a crystal oscillatorhttps://www.avrfreaks.net/comment...
  5. When your question is resolved, mark the solution: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment...

Agreed! You will probably also be a lot more motivated when working on something for yourself that you find interesting rather than doing what someone else asks you to.

Maybe an application specific community would be a good target / outlet?  For me, holiday lighting control and animatronics has been my rabbit hole.  If any of that peeks your interest, checkout http://diychristmas.org/vb1/inde... and http://doityourselfchristmas.com.  Most of the projects are either PIC or Arduino based, but there's a few of us who enjoy pure AVR and there's a few nRF24L01 oriented projects there as well.  There's a lot to be done on the wireless front there.  My personal stuff tends to be centered around Xmega E5s and nRF24L01 modules.
