Alors si je peux me permettre par quoi je devrais commencer langage phyton ?

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.

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!

Hello, this JAY from Canada. just got my first RBP , a snazzy 4GB ! I'm very impressed so far. - i got the Canakit starter MAX, highly recommend it. my other computer (s) are just overkill for web surfing, streaming, etc ... i think the RBP 4b will use a heck of a lot less power, AND it will be fun to learn a bit of LINUX , maybe do some other cool projects.

back in the 1990s i studied UNIX and C on the University SUN micro systems network, so i have some familiarity with command line operations. yikes!

lets get this party started ! whooop whooop . . .

I'm 77 and live in Northern Calif between San Francisco and Sacramento along Interstate 80. Oddly enough, I graduated long time ago from an institution called Rensselaer Polytechnic in Raspberry Pi<LOL>...where I learned machine language for an IBM 640 magnetic drum computer. I began using personal computers in 84 when I bought a Kaypro 4 CPM twin floppy "luggable" and today I have 3 W10/W7 machines using early i-core CPUs, 4 macs using similarly aged hardware, and a handful of tablets, laptops, and such. Am presently using a mac mini 2011 as a print server to a Brother laser where the Ethernet has quit working. I want to replace the mini with a Pi (fewer watts) and add file server functions to it to supplement my WD NAS.

From what I gather the Pi is itself needs to boot from an SD card. I see on eBay a reasonably priced addition that could let it boot from an NVMe blade drive via an adaptation of the USB 3 interface or, as an option, a USB-SATA interface that would boot from an SSD.

Any comments from those who have tried such?

I appreciate the speed difference of a SATA vs SD card and imagine that these additions could make a significant difference in the usability of the RPi-4B. It'll be another month before I equip myself so, so until then I'll just be a lurker noob.

Hi, been running linux 20 years. I am no geek but know the basics. I bought a pi 4, less than a week ago. It is now my second computer and I'm loving it.
Once I settle down and have the desktop the way I like it and make my home made python filemanage ssh capable and etc. I will start looking into what a pi can really do. My biggest issue now is the Gtk3 version. Gtk is a nightmare at the best of times but now they have made redundant so many things and replaced it with insane complex crap. I long for the old Tk days...

Mike here, checking in from behind a Pi4B. Unlike some other forums I've been in where I might be something of a Mr. Knowitall, around here I know a little bit less than nothing.

Hi, I’m Lou

Last time I was this close to computer software was back in the 60’s trying to pass a course in Fortran. Hated it!
I was born in Honolulu, got my ham ticket when I was 12, and earned a EE from Purdue. A career in telecom at MCI as a tech, and facilities engineer during the infancy of email eventually led me to Colorado. Until now I’ve been hands-on, hardware all the way. But at 73, I’ve decided to dabble in the software side. Imua!
