I am a total newb & have been told that I can use a Raspberry Pi to program an Arduino board & beginners projects. When I say newb I am only itno this 4 days now but I am fascinated by this whole thing. The only computer I have is a Google Chrome Laptop W/Chrome OS. I have looked thru the Raspberry Pi store & it looks like I can buy what I need to do it, but I am not sure what to buy. If this can be done can some one help me as to what I need. I am a model railroader & would look to put what I learn to use on my model railroad.
I am going to start off building the very basic beginners projects from Arduino and go from there. If I find I can understand what I am doing I would then purchases a computer W/Windows 10 for programming if I needed it.
