I'm Danny Staple, the Orionrobots guy, a builder of robots since long before the Raspberry Pi, and now mostly using Pi's in robots. I love code and electronics, and mentor people in developing their skills. I make videos of my work from time to time on youtube at my channel [https://youtube.com/orionrobots
I have a bit of a passion with robotics, as a creative technology endeavour, in my own way and on my own time. Although I have a technology related career, making stuff my own way has lead me to learn so many skills, build my own lab, and to share that passion with as many people who I can. I get fired up over demystifying and getting the power to create in as many hands as possible. In those passions, the Raspberry Pi (along with the Arduino, and a flurry of simple, inexpensive development boards), and the community of makers and educators have been huge part.
I am also the author of the book Learn Robotics Programming, exploring making and programming robots with the Raspberry Pi. I've spent time on not just code, but building techniques, choosing parts, bits of electronics and leading readers to the community.
I love the Pi, Makerspace and Python communities, and happy to lend a hand with my technical skills where I can.
I came here today to comment on PiWheels - Ben's rather awesome project making large projects like OpenCV less cumbersome to get up to date.
I'll see people at PiWars this weekend, where I am a reserve team with a Raspberry Pi 3A+ based robot.
