So now for the first time I'll have a Unix system of my own. That's exciting.
Yeah, I'm pretty stoked.

Hey, Steve from Denver, Colorado. A mile high and staying.

First started using Linux with dual boot PC back around 95. I was a big fan of Slackware back at the time and got into building my own kernels to optimize for my hardware. Was one of the first at a large Telcom here to put a Linux computer into use as an internal web server.

Today I do software engineering in the Cloud (AWS) and except for the macOs for the laptop workstation, everything else I touch is Linux.

I now have four Raspberry Pi's used for everything from a VPN to project experiments. The Raspberry takes me back to my days of building my own systems and knowing everything there was inside and around the hardware and software.

Should there be smoke coming out of the cpu? :lol:

My turn, I guess.

I'm Kingtermite (aka Chris). I've never worked with RPi or any of the 'new' kit computers, but I've been interested for years. Although I haven't (yet) worked with them, I wouldn't call myself a complete noob.

My degrees are in Computer Engineering and I've been developing software, professionally, for about 20 years or so. I did build a (before all these cool kits were available) small car designed to follow a line on the floor using a Motorola MCHC11 Micro-controller as my senior project in college.

I just need to 'get back into the swing'. My biggest challenge will be the electronics side of things. I haven't really done much with electronics in many years and I never was very good with the analog side of things in electronics.

Just ordered a kit and am trying to go through the "Exploring Raspberry Pi" book by Derek Molloy.

Hello, everyone, I'm Jacob Davis, and I'm from Las Vegas. If there is anyone from Las Vegas that also uses a Raspberry Pi, let me know.

I've been involved with computers from a young age. Usually, I use Windows, but I have been starting to branch out to different operating systems when I first started middle school. Mac OS 9 was my first taste of an alternate computer operating system, and I've used that while I was in middle school for a couple years. One of my family's relatives introduced me to Linux later on, although it was a live CD, and I've managed to find my way around most of Linux's desktop environments. Now, as of last week at the time of this writing, I have my own Pi unit, which I almost broke trying to put into its case (thank God it still works,) and managed to install Raspbian onto a USB drive, and RISC OS onto an SD card. I'm thinking of use it to replace an old aging desktop that was just sitting around gathering dust.

That's all I have to say for now.

My name's Pedro, i hail from Portugal, i am a Networks and Systems Specialist for about 16 years, i work mostly with Msft in AD / Azure systems and CISCO in network environment. I've done some server configurations in linux based machines, but in these kind of OS i'm more self taught, recently i started to do some "toys" with the raspberry. I hope, if i have any doubt, you guys here will be able to help.

Cheers

Hi all,
I'm Ben. 38yo. My online nick is always MetalTurtle or a variation. Why? because I love Metal music. And my real world nickname is Turtle.
I'm a complete green 'noob' with programming although I am an electrician that works on fire systems so a bit of extremely low level programming skill.
I'm mad into retro gaming and collecting all to do with it. Now i've got a Pi b 3+ and a 2 and have one set up with retropie and one setup with pi hole. Loving tinkering with the pi and want to get right into the guts and learn some programming.
My up coming project goal is to set up a fully operational miniature clone of a gaming rig PC case for my retropie. More of a build rather than a programming thing at this stage. Then on from that expanding it as my knowledge grows.

I look forward to asking all sorts of dumb questions. ;) and being a part of this community.

Hi.

I go by Dan.

Raspberry Pi 3 B+ was delivered yesterday so I registered here yesterday.

I've been around a bit. Done some of this and a little of that. Had a couple of great jobs and a couple of jobs that nearly drove me insane through boredom.

If you want to know more just ask me. I may not answer you but most likely I will.

I'm here to learn so please don't be offended by my dumb questions.

Hi Steve, Mike from Colorado trying to form a Raspberry Pi User group to organize the expertise that might exist in the Denver Area. Any interest? [email protected]

So I am a young man of 30 who is looking into enhancing his life with maker skills. I have a computer I built from a Kano Kit and now am looking for ways to optimize it. As a fallower of the old Gods I wonder from time to time where my life is going?
