Re: Database selection

I read already different postings about using databases on the Pi. Mainly sqlite3 is advised in most situations. What I want to achieve is that different sensors send data (of course this can happen simultaneously) to the Pi. I suppose since sqlite3 is a single user db probably its not suited for t...

Re: random blocks of pixels on LCD

Most likely your program just losing control - like stack overflow, buffer overflow, array index out of bounds etc

Re: is there a real advantage to use C++ over Python?

Very good Python or Java programmer can create code that will be both smaller and faster, than C++ code written by average C++ developer. Proven many times.

Re: Simple assembler question

Actually, assembler is one of the few languages that do not require any IDE to code effectively. And you can code, compile and run on the Pi itself.
Personally, I did assembly programming for 30+ years and never used any IDE.
So notepad or whatever you feel comfortable with - is your right choice.

Re: JRE 8 Slow Java Drawing Functions

To draw fast you need to use the OpenGL ES , OpenVG or DispmanX 2D API to get the most performance out of the Raspberry Pi by taking advantage of its VideoCore IV GPU, rendering will then be fast using any JRE. These three API work without using X11. There exist many Java bindings and frameworks th...

Re: Which Language to Learn?

Don't listen to anyone. Start learning pure C (not C++). It will take about 4 hours to learn. All you need is in wikipedia. And next, you decide what to do with your future programming skills. If you want to be able to write 300K code per day and get a decent job with high salary - Java is for you. ...
