In early 2012 I was one of the first people to receive a Raspberry Pi Computer. I couldn’t wait to rip open the box and plug it in…

My Raspberry Pi

Being a Windows user I was a bit baffled at first. The Raspberry Pi website has tons of information for people starting out and I recommend you take the time to study the set-up guides and tutorials.

That in mind, I started getting inquisitive about the multitude of things that can be done with this little machine: Use it as a PC (albeit a little slower than your average laptop), a webserver, low level electronics via the GPIO IN/OUT, this doesn’t include some of the more wacky projects that people have been designing.

I am by no means a Raspberry Pi whizzkid, and I would not like people to think that I am. The information on this site is from my own experiences and with the help of others to overcome some of the hurdles I had when I first ventured into the massive world of the tiny computer that is the Raspberry Pi.

    Hi Andy
    I was just touring your website, and I have just received a Raspberry Pi Version B. I have it up and running with the “Wheezy” software, but I was wondering what to do next!
    I am not a programmer, but more of a hardware guy. I have a project in mind (should be simple) to use 2 RS-232 ports and do some data string manipulation.
    Any ideas as to where I should start? Any particular language?
    Should I not try this at home? 😉

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

      Hi, and thanks for your comment. I’m afraid in the opposite. I can do the code but i am still learning hardware myself. Ill see what i can find out for you though…!

      Andy 😀
