Hey all,

My name is Evert. I live in Europe, The Netherland.

As a graphic designer I grew up with a Mac and as a hobby I mainly play
with Linux / debian.

Recently I discovered RPI and I am already completely addicted to the Smol Thing :-).
Would My Linux Knowledge An Advantage?
Still, I started with Raspberry Noobs and the
bought the book, "Raspberry Pi for Dummies", the little one
facts have helped me on my way with my RPI 4 / 4Gb. My first project is to build a custom made radio, so I do a lot of research in Python.

I hope to have a good time on this forum…

Greetzzzz,

Evert

Hi guys,

My names Michael.

I am 20 years old, going to basic training in January for the US Army National Guard! After that I want to go to school to be an EMT and then a paramedic. I usually play pc games. Favorite TV show is regular show etc. I shamefully like twilight and I am engaged!


After years of playing video games on windows I finally decided to branch out and try different things! So I got a raspberry pi 4 and ive been messing around with the raspbian OS and retropie. I am having a ton of fun.

Hello to all
My name is Dommy, I live in Italy, near Rome.
I am involved in electronics and occasionally, for some small projects where it is cheaper to use ready systems, I use raspberry.
I am quite ignorant with Linux, and am therefore looking for help with some problems that I cannot solve.
Thanks in advance for any future help.
Dommy

I'm David, soon to own a Raspberry Pi 4. I plan to use Mathematica on it and also to do some light programming (hobbyist command line stuff).

Hi, I'm starting a project that involves a Raspberry Pi. I'm so excited.

Last night I posted a really long post in the "Automation, sensing and robotics" forum. When I pressed "Submit" it got caught to wait moderation approval.

I suppose I have to wait, it took me a while to write that post and didn't save it, hope it doesn't get lost.

Best regards

Hi,

I'm a retiree, who might be charitably described as an
adventurous end user of computing products, not a programmer.
Alas, not even a very skilled sysadmin.... First Unix experience
was with A/UX 2.0, then 386BSD, then FreeBSD.

I started with early Pi2's, running FreeBSD as a home domain
system. Two nameservers, one web/mail server. Eventually a
Pi3B and 3B+ joined the stable, the last running RaspiOS
as a workstation/Xterminal. The workstation is now a P4
booting from USB3 mechanical disk. On balance, the machines
are all astonishingly good.

One thing I'd like to understand better is the obstacles
constraining use of the GPU. I'm not competent to fix anything,
but can do simple testing.

Thanks for reading,

Nice to meet you all! I'm currently an EE and COMP E major in a university. I'm hoping to learn, and discover the wealth of information from you all. And maybe challenge myself with a couple projects that I might struggle and have weaknesses in. I also hope to use some of my experience in digital, analogue or mixed signal, or embedded systems to be of some value to this forum and help be a part of this community and even grow and add value to it!
:D
Cheers, Zeke

Hi everyone.

I am getting the RaspberryPi 4b (desktop kit) for Christmas and am looking forward to playing with it - don't know who will cook Christmas dinner this year!? :D

As a newcomer to RaspberryPi and having no coding experience I will be starting at the very beginning and slowly working my way up. I am interested in both coding my own games and building robots, so will have plenty of fun. I am sure I will get stuck plenty so will be on here asking advice plenty.

After buying issues 99 and 100 of the MagPi and enjoying them, I subscribed for a year so will also be getting a Zero W . I have plans to set up a weather station so maybe the zero W will be used for that.

Hello all,

I am pasdechance. I won't put my real name because I am a professor and, you know, students. I teach different subjects related to business at a grad school in France.

I have been a computer user for about 30 years, a Linux user for about 15 of those and a Raspberry Pi user since the first one was released.

I don't code but I know my way around a command line and I can help out with lots of different beginner issues.

Hello,
My name is Ray and I have been in the IT industry for over a decade. I am new to the coding world and this is my first real attempt to learn how to code, I have an arm’s length understanding of code, have no experience in it. I have heard about raspberry pi and a distant understanding of it through articles and video. I am bit nervous about all this, and my interest and curiosity has led me here with the hopes of getting started in raspberry pi. I hope to learn and try different projects with the help and support Raspberry of the Pi community.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you
Ray

Hi everyone!

I'm a software developer, and the Pi 4 is a chance to build a development environment that I couldn't pass up.

I use a MacBook Pro for development, but I'd prefer to move MySQL, Redis, Elastic, PHP, Java and such onto something else (Raspbian, which is a variant of Debian, in this case), connecting to those resources via SSH, and the Pi appears ideal for that.

I bought the official kit that includes the Pi 4, a charger, SD card with NOOB installed, and case.

As of last night, I've got access to the Pi from an iPad using a VNC client.

Hi everyone,

I am new to the forums, but I have been tinkering with Raspberry Pis for a couple years at work, and have started incorporating them into use at home as well.

I work in IT support, and my hobbies are Animé, Electronics (especially old stuff), Computer Hardware, and Amateur Radio.

I am Den, and although I have been using various computers since before the BBC B and the Sinclair Spectrum.
(I helped my brother build a Nascom (?) from a kit of components - it didn't have a case, even for the keyboard!) (Z80 code only)
At work I did the servicing course with Apple for the original Mac and Apple II.
My colleagues were trying to adjust to word processing instead of typewriters...
I have been a Network Engineer, starting with 3Com servers and network cards using coax (10-base-2), progressing from IBM PC XT clones using DOS, XMS memory and 360k floppy drives to a Novell 3 Network, RJ45s, print servers, "Windows", a Unix mail server, RAID storage, etc.

I have bought 2 Pi's before my new Pi 400. One was for web browsing using my TV as a display, the second was as a wildlife camera, but it wasn't suitable because of power consumption. (I don't have a free supply of batteries)
My Pi 400 is now my 3rd laptop option, avoiding various limitations of my W7 Dell and my MacBook.
I am starting to explore the GPIO and the RasPiO duino, for a specialist 'alarm system' to trigger my CCTV NVR to record when my visiting hedgehogs are detected! (Cameras are unreliable with 'motion detection' of smaller animals) I hope to create a "weighbridge" for checking the weight of them before and after eating the food I provide.

Today, I have updated the Pi 400 IOS and now get pulseaudio to connect to my bluetooth headset, but without the 3.5mm jack, I will need a USB 'soundcard' to connect my external speakers. (Audio from YouTube videos does work through my HDMI, but so far attempts to 'speak' from 'Scratch 3' failed.

My first question, is to ask how I can type characters that aren't on my British keyboard - I have friends in Turkey and Russia and it's quite easy to use an on screen keyboard on both W7 and iOS. (It's annoying that keyboard overlays for other language layouts always assume I have a US keyboard layout instead of a British one.)
Obviously I don't want to change everything to a language that I am not fluent in using!

Regards, Den

Back when the first Raspberry Pi came out, and I got one of the pre-orders, I had no idea it would literally change the course of my life.

At the time I was playing with old computers and Linux, it was not something I could take very seriously. Because when I say old, I mean ancient.

So there I was, spending most of my time trying to throw something together that would work when the RPi showed up in the mail.

Suddenly it was not a pain to get up and running, and making a mistake was as easy as flashing a small SD card.

I went from working in a machine shop to learning to code, and now I’m a Technical Lead and just started a blog about becoming a programmer without a college degree.

I am a fan of the Ultimate Lifeform Shadow the HedgeHog as he basically proves that all the edgy Ocs weren't edgy. Right now I have Ubuntu installed on my Pi 4.

Raspberry is my new 'hobby' / interest! Want to learn a lot, so all tips are welcome!

But anyway I had a not so smart tv which is had a hp mini desktop under to sort of do the rest of the smart bit. But tv got upgraded but being a techi I still wanted the pc there BUT I very recently replaced it with a raspi 400 and I am so happy with my raspi what an amazing bit of cutting edge equipment that is. So a very happy Gary joins the r

Hello everybody!

My name is Simon and I just got myself a Raspberry Pi 400 for Christmas.

I am super happy.

I would like to thank all who helped developing this wonderful piece of hardware and awesome Raspberry Pi Os and all the community software

Can't wait for the fully stable 64bit version.
