Hello! Recently i found out that the raspberry pi existed! I really wanted one, so now I'm waiting for it to come in the mail.

I'm only beginning my journey, I'm interested in learning how to code so that one day i might end up as a game designer.
But that's only a dream, I'm starting out small and then progressing to slightly harder things.

Raspberry pi is gonna be fun! :D

Hey there folks! I heard about the RPi when I watched a YouTube video in my recommended! Look, I grew up with Windows and I'm still getting used to Raspbian.

I got a lot of stuff on my plate.

Hi everyone,
I'm a complete Noob (defo New out of the box). I used to dabble many many years ago with the launch of 8086/286 DOS based PCs, I thought now i'm 50 to try my hand at this exciting product that I've read so much about.

I'm not expecting miracles so I'll probably pester the more knowledgeable on here.

Being as olde as I am I'm going to use my RPI 4 as a gaming platform so I can play with systems that at the time were out of my reach to own lol.

Hello all, I'm Rick. I'm from northern New Hampshire in the US. I've been playing with Raspberry Pi's for a while now, mostly home theater, NAS, Retropi type stuff. I'm currently using a 3B+. I've wanted to learn Python, so for Christmas this year my wife got me one of those nifty "Ultimate Raspberry Pi Kits". It reminds me of the old Radio Shack 150-in-one Electronic kits! (coincidentally, I got one of those some 40+ years ago on Christmas!) :D I'm an absolute beginner in both electronics and Python but I started messing with the tutorials that came with the kit and lit up my first LED before Christmas dinner! I'm hooked! Can't wait to learn more. I'll thank you all in advance for the help and inspiration I'm sure this forum will provide. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! :geek:

Hello and Happy New Year to all. I'm Phil. I live in Az where I'm mostly Papa to my family. Was an electrical engineer designing IC's for Motorola's government electronics division for about 10 years and then migrated to various semiconductor companies in the Phoenix area for about another 20 years. I'm now a freelance 2D/3D animator among other things. Getting back to my engineering roots working of various Pi, Arduino and other electronic projects. I love animation, art, electronics, anything geek, cycling and of course my family the most. Looking to learn and help where I can. Pi's a great computer and just love all the things that can be done. At the moment setting up an Octoprint Pi for my new Prusa 3D printer.

I'm a programmer with some electronics experience - I'm interested in using a Raspberry Pi to replace the controller in a bread maker - gotta have a hobby!
In the short term I will be looking for advice as to what kit I get for that project
Happy New Year!

Hi I'm Richard from North East England. I got a Pi a couple of months ago. Did some retopi first. I have limited success. I then moved onto trying very simple projects using a FREENOVE kit I bought. I quickly got stuck as the components in the book I'm using don't match those in my FREENOVE kit. I found this forum to hopefully get help.

Hi, I'm Ritchie. Elsewhere on the internet, you may know me as a contributor to the SABRE Maps project, as a regular Wikipedia editor or as one of the contributors to the NAGI emulator or someone interesting in disassembling old ZX Spectrum games.

I've been tinkering with Linux since 1.0.23 (I think) and have caught the Raspberry Pi bug, having bought a 3B+ for my son a few Christmases ago, and now upgraded to a 4 this one just gone - where amongst other things I sat down and explained the rudiments of memory allocation and pointers in C. :twisted: My next project will probably be setting up a TV server upstairs using a TV Hat so myself and Mrs 333 can watch television in bed.

Good Afternoon,

I am Johnny Valli, or Azrael(online). I am brand new to the forum and to raspberry pi. I just ordered the Raspberry Pi 4. I look forward to this new hobby. I have some general coding experience and have built several computers. I am an avid gamer, retro gaming collector and MMORPG(currently WoW Retail) fan. I want to see where this new machine takes me and dive into the world of Linux. I am looking for any recommendations for a newbie to get started.

And now me.
I am Branko from Slovenia, I have some Pis in the house doing their jobs and sometimes I get into problems like now, and I think that there is the right place to ask.

Hi All,
I am new to the PI world. Just got my RPI3B+ the other day to start learning (re-learning) Linux and learn to code with Python. I will probably use Pi's to do some small projects, but mainly got it to refresh myself on using something other than Windows. Mainly want to do this so that I can teach my now 2 year old son how to code. When I was a kid, in the late 70's early 80's, we used to have a Texas Instruments TI99-4A and did quite a bit with BASIC. I would like to get him involved at a young age, so maybe he goes the way I originally was going to, but didn't, and go to school for computer science. If not, no biggy, he'll at least have a little bit more knowledge about how computers work than his buddies. ;)
So far I have "written" a version of the "Hello World" Python program, installed scratch thru the GUI, installed libreoffice from the command line, and connected my network drive so that I could change the wallpaper of the GUI. I have had a problem with getting an openoffice spreadsheet to open from my network drive in libreoffice, but I'll ask about that on a different thread.
RPI3B+ - Raspberry Pi OS -general "playing" and/or RetroPi
RPI0W#1 - MotionEyeOS - yard surveillance
RPI0W#2 - Driveway gate monitor - coming soon
RPI0W#3 - ?????

Hi, I am from the UK and I am totally new to the Pi and linux the environment, but I have been tempted by the idea of running my own cloud server and media server on a pi for some time now.

Recently I set up a private TS3 server to replace a Discord server seemed to cause more problems than it's worth on mobile devices but it's running on my laptop and I don't really want to leave that or another PC system running 24/7 for a TS server so, after a bit of research, I purchased a Pi 4 B 4G kit.

Unfortunately my research was not complete enough and I now realise that this solution might not be as easy as i first thought

I'm Natti and I'm just getting into Pi's - modding an existing Arcade1up machine. :) Nice to meet you and hopefully I won't be too much of a bother with questions.

Take care!

my real name is Gert, I´m living in Germany in the Area near Bonn/Cologne.
I´m retired and die rapsi`s should fill a part of my time ;-)
Since Novemer last Year I´ve got a 4b, a 3a and a 3b+ in 7"-Displaycase.
My first project was pihole on the 3a, that works fine after a time of try anr error.

My English is a bit rustic, but I´ll give my very best :-)
Caution: Raspi is addictive :lol: :lol:
