Everybody loves cake, right? Cakes have layers. Mmm…. cake! We’re sure you’ll also love PiBakery, a brand new way to bake Raspberry Pi images, which makes creating a custom image a… piece of cake. PiBakery was created by David Ferguson. He’s a talented 17-year-old whom we first met at the Big Birthday event we held... Continue reading
When we originally announced the Raspberry Pi 3, we announced that we’d implemented several new boot modes. The first of these is the USB mass storage boot mode, and we’ll explain a little bit about it in this post; stay tuned for the next part on booting over Ethernet tomorrow.

Yes, it is that Jessie, but not in... Continue reading
Hopefully the dust has now settled on the first batch of changes to the Raspbian desktop which were made available at Christmas, and you’ve either a) decided you like them, or b) decided you hate them and have rolled back to a previous version, never to upgrade again. If you are in group b), I... Continue reading

I should start by introducing myself.
