Site Updates - November

We have certainly had a busy November. For the first time in Rebrickable's 3 year history, I have had another developer help me with code changes. As a control freak, this was pretty nerve wracking at first. However, unlike myself, Jantjeuh is a professional web developer who has also been a Rebrickable Inventory Admin for the last 4 months and at the start of November started helping me fix my dodgy code. Surprisingly he didn't run away screaming after seeing it :) He has been invaluable in refactoring a lot of code to make it easier to maintain and helping me switch to better web development workflows like using git. Thanks Jantjeuh!

Review - Mindstorms EV3 - MindCub3r

Rather than pick another of the community supplied robots that come with the EV3 software, I wanted to build a Rubik's Cube solving robot. It just so happens there is a fantastic project already available that creates one from just the 31313 EV3 parts - the MindCub3r created by David Gilday. Awesome :)

Review - 21117 Minecraft The Ender Dragon

The Ender Dragon is a scene from some game called Minecraft. I guess if you're reading this you most likely already know that and probably know way more about the game than me. But essentially it is a game about using different types of bricks to create stuff. Remind you of something?
