Hello, I'm Markus from Finland. I work as an embedded software designer. I already made my first RPi tutorial for anyone who wants to enable the RPi 3 with Raspbian Lite Stretch as a bluetooth audio receiver. ... -receiver/

I started with my first RPi 3 two weeks ago and set it up as a webserver, git-server, owncloud server, mumbleserver, irssi client and have it running headless with the possibility of connecting to it via ssh, teamviewer or bluetooth terminal. There are no really good bluetooth terminals for android so when I have some spare time I will learn how to make android software and I will make my own or contribute to some open source program to bring a good bluetooth terminal experience to android. Currently I have the next two weeks completely booked after work because I sing in a choir and we have 9 Christmas concerts scheduled :)

A week ago I bought my second RPi 3 and I intend to make it a car entertainment system, navigation, theft prevention etc. I already have the bluetooth receiver thing working and have ordered a gps-module, 3g-module and a battery pack for it to run after the car has been shutdown. I made some modifications to my car already and I have a soft-power button to shutdown and wake up the pi on my car dashboard :) I still need a touch-display from somewhere and those other modules to arrive from china.

I love the Raspberry Pis. Next I might order some Zeros. I just need to figure out some project that I could use it for :D

See you around!

Hello world (sorry could not resist)
Call me bill , I am an electronics technician, industrial systems technician. I have been at since first days of commodore 64 and in school it was mainframe and there was tube testers in the stores. Got my start with electronics with a model railroad . Have been an outside the box thinker (to some extremes some day) Worked with the most basic analog to circuits as complex as a video server used in TV studios. Worked with IBM, mac, iPad, android, mainframe, c64, pocket computer, kaypro, palm, CE and some very strange CNC type machines. Also work PLC and HMI of industrial control which means I have work with 440 volt 3 phase power.
BUT , I have also work with mechanical stuff as well, such as ship steam propulsion , water pumps, hydraulics , air compressors, oxygen separators, ozone generators.
Hobby wise, well its electronics, computers, model railroads, radio control , amateur radio music synthesizers

You can ask me any question as long as it is not sports.

Hi all,

I'm Aaron i'm the head of ICT at a secondary school in sunny Dorset and all round geek.

we've had pi's in school now for about a year and a half with the main ones being a bank of 30 pi3's that where initially got for hacking Minecraft after a course i did at the end of 2016. It went down amazingly with the students so to help expand on this i went on the Picademy course in Manchester this year which was an incredible experience, which has helped me bring the physical side of computing with yet more purchased pi's into the classroom from using sense hats to just making LED's light up the student find the whole process engaging and fun seeing how aspects of computer science can link into the real world.

If your thinking of going on a PiCademy course then i'd def say do it as it's a fantastic experience and you get to meet a whole group of like minded people as well.

Into over.

#include hello.h

my name is Michelle, I am Open Source Deveoper ( linux4michelle ) and long term Debian GNU/Linux user beginning with 2.1 Slink in 1999. I am PostgreSQL expert owning one of the biggest Historical databases in the world, run my own Courier Mail server (also with mailinglists), a load of Apache 2 webservers and my own mini cloud network. Hence, I have a bunch of root servers availlable to do many crazy things with it.

Also I am Electronic Developer and since 2014 co-owner of Miila Mahe Aed OÜ(translated: Miila Organic Garden) in Estonia.

OK, Miila Mahe Aed OÜ is an expermental BioFarm and the sandbox for my seconbd enterprise, which will be not more an enterprise, because I will create it as a Foundation with the target to develop 24V DC based Autonomous Power Supply Systems and all things arround.

Of course, anything will be Open Source under something similar to the GNU GPL v3.

However, the Foundation will offer also Dual Licensing under something similar ot the BSD MIT License for a fee to allow the use of our ideas to be included in commercial products and the same time to allow us to develop new things..

OK, only the provisory website of Miila Mahe Aed OÜ is up and running but I am already working on the website of the foundation.

So for now I am here, because I like to get into Raspberry PI 3 as lowcost platform, using CAN, and big TFT displays.
My main research and development are Datalogger (Wind and Solarenergy) , envirement measuring and controlling

May PI and the source be with you

I just picked up a toy programming language project I had put down a while ago and am working to make it useful (or at least interesting) for Raspberry Pi enthusiasts of all ages.

I am John, an eCommerce extension developer. I have developed more than 20 extensions for WooCommerce. I am new to this forum, saying hello to all the members of this forum.
I am thinking of picking up a Pi for a little hobby project so once approved I will have some questions about the best technology stack for what I have in mind - best Raspberry model of course but also good software stacks.

Hi everyone,

My name is Remi, I'm from Poland but living and working in Northern Ireland. I've started programming year ago and recently did get a first job.
Part of the project I'm working on is based on Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Rev. 1. I hope I'll find some help here. Actually, I already did but there will be plenty more challenges and issues later on.

I like watching football, analysing statistics about it, looking for patterns (geeky things about beautiful game).
Basketball, TV Shows & Movies and whiskey. Simple hobbies for simple man.

If I can help , I always will but at the start of my journey mostly I need help. ;)

Hi I'm Bryan, I'm a college student with a course in computer engineering. Recently I've been invested in working with raspberry pi in making a media server and later I'm planning to make a retro game console out of it. I have the basic grasp of languages such as C, C#, C++, Java, and as well as webdev languages/scripts too. But I'm not exactly at the level of developing programs professionally. But right now I'm kinda hooked with front end web design.

Aside from working with computer software, troubleshooting hardware problems are pretty much the thing I kinda dig. Been fixing laptops and system units for my family and cousins since I was 16. Nice to meet ya peeps :).

Hi, I'm Dean. I'm a retired IT manager for a local TV station in North Texas. My first computer experience was way back in 1979 when a friend loaned me his TRS-80 computer and I learned to program in RS-basic. It was great fun and I haven't been computerless since. I'm very excited about the Raspberry 3 and it's ability to be a desktop computer and more! I haven't been working with it for very long, but I'm already amazed at what it can do both by itself, and when embedded with other hardware and software. You'll probably get a lot of questions from me, but I'll answer some too, if I'm able.

I am a newbie from Canada. I am the principal of a small rural elementary school and I heard about the wonders of the raspberry pi in the classroom. I wanted to experience for myself before introducing it to my teachers and students.I bought one for me... err my son! ;) I discovered Scratch. Bought five pi's to begin my pilot project and that's about it. Got my son an AlphaBot2 thinking it would be programmable with Scratch, but it doesn't look like it. I'm not sure how I will get my teachers to by into this project. If it looks complicated to me, it will be too overwhelming for them. I hope to find support and motivation in this forum... Thanks.

Let me Introduce myself!

Fri Dec 29, 2017 5:51 pm

Hey everyone.
New here and to the Raspberry Pi. A little back ground. I'm hardware savvy but when it comes to code or any type of programing I can do a repeating DOS line and that's about it. I got the Raspberry for xmas this year and now my kids and I want to tackle probably the most difficult thing to do as beginners, an outdoor xmas light display to music. Yep I'm that guy.. Since I have no experience in any of this I'm looking for anyone to point me in the direction of how to, one- use the Raspberry, two-do the code for the lights (Sequence) to the music, three- how to mesh the two together code and music.
I have the electrical knowledge to hook up all the hardware ie. power, relays etc, but majorly stupid when it comes to any of this other stuff.. I look forward to any help.
Thanks again,
"I Find Your Lack of Faith Disturbing"

Hi all,

I am Donald Silverburgh and I am from Dallas, Texas. I am a Freelance Marketer by profession. I am a proud Husband and a proud father of a son and a daughter. I am very much delighted to be a part of Raspberry Pi Forums and I am sure that it would be an amazing experience. I would love to contribute to this platform and would help others. Moreover, I am an active person on Quora and answer a lot of questions related to Raspberry Pi. This has taught me so much about it and I am learning and getting much from it. I hope I will learn a lot from here.\

I'm Leonardo, I'm a developer, and I'm passionate about Raspberry after I started to think if it was possible boot a bare metal and load some kind of OS.
I needed a cheap PC and I bought a PI Zero, I found PI Zero awesome and I love it.

I drink coffee too, and beer, but not mixed :lol:

My first computer was a zx spectrum 48k and I'd like to have it again

Joe Kesselman, IBMer since before the IBMPC, software hacker since well before that, badly out of practice at hardware-level Unix admin but relearning it.

I was involved in a significant chunk of IBM's XML efforts (including serving on the W3C's DOM Working Group and being involved in the code which became Apache Xerces and Xalan); more recently I've had my fingers in Websphere Liberty and in some of the Watson Health projects.

If you websearch for "keshlam", you'll find everything else I've been involved in. About the only references that I know of which aren't me are "Kesh Lam" and Tempus Keshlam on TheManaWorld.

Current Pi project: A quick swing at getting the WiSH drivers ( running to control old an old X10 interface. Those were written for an earlier Linux, and there are still some edges that need to be hammered back into place before it'll work, but I've posted what I've done so far to its mailing list. If it doesn't work fairly quickly I may resort to one of the other solutions, but Wish has the advantage of being easy to control from the command line, which would make it easy to tie into HA-BRIDGE and integrate into SmartThings.

Just recently got a Raspberry Pi to build a retro gaming console with RetroPie. I got to set it up myself with all the very helpful resources online. Now I'm interested in learning what other possibilities there are with Raspberry Pi. I might end up getting another one to see what else is possible!

Be talking more in the forums!
