  • Attended #KeralaJS September meetup.

    All the sessions were very informative and added a bunch of new things to the to-learn list!

    The first session by Ganesh (UX Strategist, UX Problem Solver And Lead UI Designer, Tata Consultancy Services, Infopark Kochi) on Visual Approach to presentation design gave lots of good insights and tips on how a presentation should be. It was detailed and mentioned different terminologies and theories in UX and presentation design.

    The second session was by Nithin Chandran (Senior software engineer, KeyValue Systems) on Adopting Typescript. He talked about why TypeScript and how it adds value when Dart or Coffee script-like languages are doing the same thing. The key point was how it is easy to adopt TypeScript for a JavaScript programmer.

    The third session was by Mahin on RxJS with a Live Demo. He demonstrated what is RxJS and what sort of capability it adds by things like Operators.

    The final extempore session by Praseed Pai Kt about why JavaScript is considered as "Glue" language and why it got designed so (dynamic, prototype-based oop, functional constructs ) with the details of history and facts about the context when JS got originally designed by Brendan Eich.

    Thank you KeyValue Systems for such an awesome venue and snacks (;-P). Thank you, Nirmal Vyas and all speakers and attendees for such a beautiful event.

    @salmanfaris best if you could point me to an example that works as described: getting different values depending on hoe close the finger is without really touching. nothing i tried did work yet

    @salmanfaris I haven't found a good sensor module for this at all. I used a thing which was calles touch sensor and it returns only 1/0. Tried to use touchRead() but it is not sensitive apparently, only 40 and 1 more or less.

    #define touch_pin_numer 33

    const int VALUE_THRESHOLD = 30;
    void setup()

    void loop(){
    TOUCH_SENSOR_VALUE = touchRead(touch_pin_numer);
    Serial.println ("Touch ON");
    Serial.println ("Touch OFF");

    should show something between 40 (current max) and 1 (current min) the closer the finger gets but it shows 40/41/39 and 1 - nothing inbetween. got this code from the web

  • @FlorianB Can you share the code, output window/error and details of the sensor module?

    Hi! I am trying to add an capacitive sensor to the ESP32, that will work through glass with 3mm thickness and an distance of 8 to 2 cm. I have bought sensors which only work on touch, i have looked into the touchRead() function but cant get a steady value increase/decrease with distance and only a real touch gets me enough difference to count it as a "touch". I have checked Arduino examples with foil where a resistor can set the sensitivity but nothing worked on my ESP32. i have spent hours looking for an example, can somebody point me to one please?
