my name is Daniel, I am an sales engineer from German with a focus robotics.
I really like my job, but as an sales person you are not in touch with a lot technical details unfortunately (my opinion)....
To satisfy my curiosity, I started to teach myself C, Python and mechatronics (especially micro-controllers hooked me).
I had my first commercial website about stock trading as an student, which worked quite well.
Nowadays I am triying to combine my experience with my hobby to create something. My first project is about a new generation lock, which will protect all your goods like bag, jacket, locker... it workes as an door alarm and it evens as an bicycle locker too.
I've bulied a couple of prototypes already, but the size still needs to shrink a bit more and during the whole process I am coming up with idea after idea which I need to implement as well (its very hard to come to an end
During my work I backed up some money to finance marketing activities and other expenses.
My biggest issue though, is how to start to make my product knowen to other people.... I've started to read bookes about how to setup a start-up marketing campaign but I still have a big gap of knowledge regarding this topic.
I hope this forum will be one more source to learn something about how to get started.... I appreciate any kind of advice. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have the feeling that I can help you in some way.
