Beginner Friendly Blogs, Links, Posts, etc

Sat Oct 27, 2012 6:17 am

Hey guys,

These forums have been super helpful, but kind of hard to negotiate (and don't always have everything), so I thought we'd start a link-fest to blogs both within, and without the Foundation website for those wanting to get their teeth stuck into the Pi.

Firstly Algorythmic's Blog is slightly more advanced, but it's well written nature means even us beginners can follow it. Nice one.
Secondly the eLinux Wiki has been handy.
Now I've started my own blog for beginners, By Noobs for Noobs, where I'm doing my best to include all the information that I've had to scrape around for, and found handy.

Thanks for all your help guys. Any posts / blogs / links you've found especially handy (for beginners)?

Linky? I, for one, would love to take a look at your blog.

The "By Noobs For Noobs" text in his post is also a link. The forums just don't show it very well.

Hey Hey!

I am going to be completely self-advertising and put a link to my YouTube channel, where I offer loads of awesome Raspberry Pi tutorials:

I also do some articles for the MagPi!

Enjoy

By the way, the blog you posted about looks great, very well written and approachable.

Thanks Bgiradot! I'm glad.

Nothing wrong with self advertising RPi guy >.> especially with your site, very cool and very useful. I will have to check more videos out in detail when I get some spare time / bandwidth. Thanks for sharing all that good knowledge.

I was looking at the Lets Make Robots site earlier and came across a method for driving IOs directly from the Pi

PS - sorry about the link confusion - I can't go back now, but will use coloured fonts from here on in. Thanks for the feedback Rick.

PPS - It's not 'simple' per se, but I have also been looking at this blog by one of the main XBMC on Raspbian dudes. I haven't made it work yet (will probably end up using RaspBMC) but it's handy knowledge all the same.

Good stuff self plug sort of but mostly.

The link driving IOs directly from the Pi isn't working in the post above.

I try to add a little to my site every day but it is getting overwhelming :( to stubborn to give up.

I have a modified Knowledge Base style found on the right widgets navigation. Raspberry Pi Guide

I need to figure out the nesting of taxonomy for the root category it shows all the subs but enough of that. Trying to figure out how to add all the blogs I have bookmarked that's probably coming soon glad to add yours to it.
