RPi Beginners
Back to the Hub Getting Started: Buying Guide - for advice on buying the Raspberry Pi. SD Card Setup - for information on how to prepare the SD Card used to boot your Raspberry Pi. Basic Setup - for help with buying / selecting other hardware and setting it up. Beginners Guide - you are up and running, now what can you do? Advanced Setup - for more extensive information on setting up. Trouble Shooting - some things to check if things don't work as expected. There is some restructuring going on , we are sorry for the inconvenience. Any easy question to ask, but a very difficult one to answer! If you are looking for any information related to SD Cards and setup look here If you need to get a RPi, the see the Buying Guide. References needed (idea for new section Living Without RPi, which can guide users or link to info to users who haven't got RPis) Link to emulation builds or live linux cds setup for beginners (RacyPy2 for example) For more information about Linux see Wikipedia sudo raspi-config

Life with Raspberry Pi: Sparking a School Coding Revolution Illustration by Harry Campbell By Chad Sansing Our classroom glows with activity. One kid drafts a how-to article in which he explains the steps involved in wiring a cardboard Minecraft controller. Automatic setup for RTL8188CUS based wifi adapters I have produced a script to allow automatic installation of the drivers for Realtek RTL8188CUS based wifi adapters and a document giving instructions on how to use it. The script is rather crude but does the job pretty well I think. All you have to do is edit the script to add your own SSID and PASSWORD and then run a single command. The rest is done automatically by the script. Very simple and it only takes a couple of minutes to get the Pi up and running with wifi.

Python Multithreaded Programming Running several threads is similar to running several different programs concurrently, but with the following benefits − Multiple threads within a process share the same data space with the main thread and can therefore share information or communicate with each other more easily than if they were separate processes.Threads sometimes called light-weight processes and they do not require much memory overhead; they care cheaper than processes. A thread has a beginning, an execution sequence, and a conclusion. It has an instruction pointer that keeps track of where within its context it is currently running. It can be pre-empted (interrupted)It can temporarily be put on hold (also known as sleeping) while other threads are running - this is called yielding.

Coder for Raspberry Pi A simple way to make web stuff on Raspberry Pi. Coder is a free, open source project that turns a Raspberry Pi into a simple platform that educators and parents can use to teach the basics of building for the web. New coders can craft small projects in HTML, CSS, and Javascript, right from the web browser. Download Coder Raspberry pi loves Sensors and LEDs make sure the tools are installed... to test if the tool are installed run the following command..sudo i2cdetect -y 0 this will scan all devices connected to the I2C bus. it should look like the pic below. if you see that i2ctools are not installed run the following comand sudo apt-get install i2c-tools

Coder Projects Things to make. Stuff to learn. Looking for something to do this weekend? Coder Projects are simple, fun, and sneakily educational things that can all be made with Coder and Rasberry Pi. Host Your Own Website On Your Raspberry Pi Need to run a website but can’t afford the hosting costs? One way around this is with the Raspberry Pi, which is more than capable of running basic web server software. Best of all, setting it up is simple. Why Use A Raspberry Pi?
