Who is behind CoreConduit?cpotter1

That would be me, Cory!

I’m an engineer with a passion for gardening and sharing knowledge.

I love gardening, but the maintenance and time-intensive processes became frustrating. I used my background in Electronics and Software Engineering to develop a tool that enables people to achieve a successful harvest all year round.  Professionally, I have over 20 years of experience in various roles including an electronics engineer, a plastics fabricator, software engineer, an industrial laser technician, and, of course, a barista. I’m also what you would call a collector of hobbies and skills.

I am very much a proponent of being hands-on with your garden, as I believe it is not possible to have continued success without knowing and checking your plants yourself. But I wasn’t satisfied with having to worry about when to turn on fans and heaters, pumps, lights, and humidifiers. You know, all that irritating stuff. By combining my strong interests in electronics and gardening with hydroponics, I gradually developed an automated system capable of maintaining both my indoor and outdoor garden using microcontrollers, sensors, and wireless controlled outlets. And the hydroMazing was born!
