learning resources.

Sat Dec 26, 2015 10:04 am

I may know a bit on windows OS, but, on Opensource, linux etc I am a complete idiot, newbie, nerd and dummy !!

Can someone suggest any literature and/or online resources, especially about the booting process, script editing etc etc and all.

• Don't like the board ? Missing features ? Change to the prosilver theme ! You can find it in your settings.
• Don't like to search the forum BEFORE posting 'cos it's useless ? Try googling : yoursearchtermshere

Start here: ... ning-read/ that's a signpost to all of the Newbie stuff.
Any language using left-hand whitespace for syntax is ridiculous

Any DMs sent on Twitter will be answered next month.
Fake doctors - are all on my foes list.

Any requirement to use a crystal ball or mind reading will result in me ignoring your question.

I've tried to put together a couple simple projects for the pi as well that might be of some help:

Initial Setup: ... ial-setup/

Lighting an LED with the Pi's GPIO ... oject-led/

Making a little LED stoplight with the Pi's GPIO (with a little more Python programming) ... stoplight/

Also, there is a little information on getting started with Linux:

These are basically my notes, but perhaps you can find them of some use.

Good luck with the new Pi!
