The Raspberry Pi can execute code written in a wide range of languages, given that the “Pi” in Raspberry Pi is a nod to the Python language itself and that it is a relatively easy to learn for the beginner, it’s a great place to start.
Do you have a hobby or interest that you would like to share with the world? Then why not start your own blog. Let me begin by saying that I started this website to share information that I found useful and that I hoped others would find useful at the same time. I enjoy learning new things and this blog allows me to help people, get great ideas and engage in interesting conversations with others who also enjoy in the same thing.
Motion detection can be done quite easily by using the GPIO ports of the Raspberry Pi and a motion sensor. In this article I will show you how to connect a PIR (Passive Infra-Red) sensor to the Pi and we will also use one of the GPIO’s as an output to connect up a simple LED so that you can check to see that the whole setup is working.
The Pi Camera from the Raspberry Pi Foundation is a great little unit that connects directly to your Raspberry Pi via a ribbon cable to the dedicated CSI (Camera Serial Interface) located just behind the Ethernet port. The Raspberry Pi Camera Board v2 is a high quality 8 megapixel
If writing software isn’t really your thing but you still want to create an interesting Internet of Things (IOT) project then using Cayenne and the Raspberry Pi is a great solution.
Soldering is one of the skills that can really expand what you are able to do as an electronics hobbist and fortunately it not difficult to learn. By practicing some basic techniques you can open up a whole world of new projects.
Interacting with electronic circuits is one of the great things you can do with the Raspberry Pi utilising it’s General Purpose Input Output (GPIO) ports. If you are new to making electronic circuits then you do need to be careful as it is possible
The Raspberry Pi foundation has recently released an upgrade to the User Interface (UI) for the Pi, it’s called PIXEL meaning “Pi Improved Xwindows Environment, Lightweight”. The creator, Simon Long, says that this has been in the works for 2 years
This Raspberry Pi pool monitor website makes controlling the associated Hydropi python code much easier. It will allow you to see current and average readings from multiple sensors, set relay timers and change settings. It will also provide you with
The Raspberry Pi is all about learning and education, hosting your own website right from your Pi can be a great way to learn more about creating your own webpages and the tools involved. If you haven’t already then the first step is to set
