Eben: Here’s a guest post from Tom Sherlock, describing how he’s been able to control a telescope using a Raspberry Pi, Mathematica and the Wolfram Language. As an amateur astronomer, I’m always interested in ways to use Mathematica in my hobby. In earlier blog posts, I’ve written about how Mathematica can be used to process … Continue reading →
If you head over to the downloads page, you’ll find new versions of our Raspbian image and NOOBS installer. Alongside the usual firmware and kernel improvements, major changes to the Raspbian image include: Java updated to JDK 8 Mathematica updated to version 10 Sonic Pi updated to version 2 Minecraft Pi pre-installed Following its release … Continue reading →
Liz: If you use Raspbian, you’ll have noticed that Mathematica and the Wolfram Language come bundled for free with your Raspberry Pi. (A little boast here: we were only the second computer ever on which Mathematica has been included for free use as standard. The first? Steve Jobs’s NeXT, back in 1988.)  Earlier in July, Wolfram Research announced a big … Continue reading →
Here’s another guest post from Allison Taylor at Wolfram Research. We’ve seen sous vide applications before – but we’ve never seen one that uses the Wolfram Language and Mathematica to describe elegant curves while it prepares your dinner. Thanks Allison, and thanks to Diego Zviovich, who came up with this project. Diego Zviovich, another one … Continue reading →
Here’s another guest post from Allison Taylor at Wolfram, which is part of a series that will help smooth your introduction to Mathematica. Thanks Allison: over to you! At our 2010 and 2011 Wolfram Technology Conferences, attendees were challenged to come up with their best one-liners—pieces of code written in less than one line, or … Continue reading →
Have you been staring at the Mathematica and Wolfram Language icons on your Raspbian install, and wondering where to get started? We’ll be featuring several guest posts from Wolfram Research in the coming weeks, so you can start to get to work with them. This first, introductory post is from Arnoud Buzing. Arnoud and the … Continue reading →
One of the best things about working on Raspberry Pi has been the opportunity to meet groups of people who are trying to bring about the same sort of change in the teaching of other subjects that we’re aiming for in computing. One great example is the computer-based math(s) (CBM) movement, which aims to redefine … Continue reading →
