Nearly all of the fuss about the low-cost Raspberry Pi computer's hardware has died down and we finally have some details of its software that is easy enough for the rest of us to follow. So what can you do with it out of the box? Dr Eben Upton, founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, has just posted some easy-to-follow details of how to get started programming the Raspberry Pi. It was initially a webinar but if you missed it then you can download the information as a PDF - but be warned there is some strange formatting and repetitions due to the change in presentation format. The first half or so of the presentation is about unboxing and getting started, so the emphasis on hardware hasn't entirely evaporated. Once we do get to the software details then things are much more interesting. The good news is that the boot image contains a program editor, JOE, which features syntax highlighting for Python and C. Notice that this criticism by no means implies that the Raspberry Pi is a failure.
Setting up a VM for Raspberry Pi development using Virtualbox, Scratchbox2 & qemu (Part 1) « Executing GummiwormsLast week I released version 0.2 of the Raspberry Pi development VM and I thought that I could safely call it a day because in a few weeks the Raspberry Pi hardware will be available and therefore we will no longer need the VM for software development. So yesterday I announced on this blog and the Raspberry Pi forums that I had decided to EOL the VM and would no longer be updating it as I didn't see the need and i'm not going to have the time to maintain it for the next few months as it takes about 12 to 14 hours to create, configure and upload, 8 to 10 hours of that is uploading using all my upstream bandwidth which is no longer feasible for me to do again until after June. However, almost immediately after posting that I started to receive tweets and PM's asking me not to stop working on the VM or to at least write detailed instructions on how to create your own VM for Raspberry Pi (or other ARM based devices) from scratch. This ends part one.

FAQsTable of Contents: The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word processing, browsing the internet, and playing games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by adults and children all over the world to learn programming and digital making. You can read more about the Raspberry Pi here. The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a charity, so you can’t buy shares in the company. You can buy a Raspberry Pi from our main distributors, Premier Farnell/Element14 and RS Components/Allied Electronics. The Model A+ costs $20, the Model B+ costs $25, the Pi 2 costs $35, the Pi 3 costs $35, and the Pi Zero costs $5, plus local taxes and shipping/handling fees. You get the Raspberry Pi board itself. The components we buy are priced in dollars, and we negotiate manufacturing in dollars. 4.
Raspberry PiThe Raspberry Pi is a series of credit card-sized single-board computers developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of promoting the teaching of basic computer science in schools. The original Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Pi 2 are manufactured in several board configurations through licensed manufacturing agreements with Newark element14 (Premier Farnell), RS Components and Egoman. These companies sell the Raspberry Pi online. Egoman produces a version for distribution solely in China and Taiwan, which can be distinguished from other Pis by their red colouring and lack of FCC/CE marks. The hardware is the same across all manufacturers. In 2014, the Raspberry Pi Foundation launched the Compute Module, which packages a BCM2835 with 512 MB RAM and an eMMC flash chip into a module for use as a part of embedded systems.

NasBerryPiR-Pi NASBack to RPi Guides. Raspberry Pi Network Attached Storage This project configures your Raspberry Pi to share files with any other computer on your local network. You can add a large hard disk to the RPi and use this to store your important files/photos/videos in a central location. The files on your RPi can be easily accessed from any type of computer which is connected to your network, for example a Windows PC, a Linux PC, A Mac, a smartphone, etc. Warning: Make sure that you store your important files in more than one location. Note: There are two major classes of Network Attached Storage Low-power NAS. This project does not require any coding or compilation. You need to...
