Raspberry Pi purchase & setup guide for developers

Sun Dec 16, 2012 5:51 pm

In case anyone is interested, I documented some purchasing tips and device setup steps in this article:

My goal was to get setup for remote development as quickly as possible. Drop me a comment if you find the guide useful or have questions.

This is a really useful summary. How nice to have the basics in one place instead of searching all over this forum and the web through endless emails and blogs. The foundation should have the foresight to do something like this.

I hope you will keep it updated for newcomers. One of the biggest problems for newbies is determining whether a document is current. There is a lot of outdated information out there on the Raspberry Pi.

Thanks,
Michael

A few comments:
1) You didn't include a Power Supply in your list

2) It would help if you also included instructions for Windows users to create the OS SD Card

3) Your picture doesn't show an attached Monitor HDMI or RCA connection. How are you displaying the Config.Pi screen?

4) Since the Edimax dongle already has Drivers loaded in the Kernel, it is easier to set up the WiFi connection using the Configuration Utility in the GUI.
