Hi
RF background - systems integrator at work. Have a lot of dumb questions about Raspberry Pi. It seems to be a cool SBC. I have worked with the MinnowBoard and want to get to know the Raspberry PI.

I’m Nick,
I’m a Welder with a slight IT background from back in high school and just playing around on my own. New to the raspberry pi field, and always looking to learn.

I’m Miao,
I am a raspberry store owner and also playing with raspberry pi. Who want free raspberry pi 3B+ samples in US and CA can contact me by techtestmiao at 163 dot com.

Hello, I'm gregnier and live in Fremont, CA, USA. I'm trying to wrap my mind around all this Raspberry Pi stuff. At present, I'd like to get my Raspberry Pi 3 model B+ to communicate on my local computer network. Second, get OctoPi 0.15.1 installed, working on the Raspberry Pi and interacting with my Prusa i3 MK3 3D printer. Thirdly, My ultimate goal is to be able to observe (I've built and installed a Raspberry Pi camera on the 3D printer.) and control the 3D printer remotely from my cell phone.

Problems:
1) Can not get Raspberry Pi networking with my other computers.
2) I've downloaded OctoPi 0.15.1 but can not get it installed and working in Raspberry Pi 3 model B+
3) I finally gave up and purchased a pre-installed OctoPi on an additional mini 32GB SD card ($40). This card does not appear to completely boot the Raspberry Pi. Now I have two 32GB SD cards. Neither of them accomplishes what I want.

Successes with the first 32GB card:
1) Successfully formatted SD card.
2) Installed the Linux operating system.
3) Installed Chromium and got it to communicate with the internet.
4) I downloaded several utility programs: Angry IP Scanner, Putty, Notepad ++. None of which was able to install and made to work.

As you can see, I'm buried with technical issues and desperately need help. It seems I run into brick walls at every turn. Can anyone offer assistance?

Just a typical homegrown amateur being still curious of everything (since C-64 Basic).

Jan from Germany (where this is a boys name), "jackaroo" because I have family in Australia, and they made that a nickname for me...

Started with a Sinclair ZX-81 (Zilog Z80-based) first with basic, then in assemply. Many other µCs since. - Overslept most of M$-Win, but had to use DOS anyway. Went to Linux in 1995, added to several projects (mostly i4l, iptables and i2c).

Today I'm doing minor automation things for a hobby, but also µC-based self-controlled watering for a neighbouring gardener and cool-house cooling for a butcher (I don't do the cooling, but my devices control, report and inform).

Cheers, Jack.

Quick addendum, what I'm here for, at all:

Pi is the perfect platform to prototype and to interface new projects. It works out of the box, has all common protocols and is open for own ideas, which can be easily realized. Plus, vast documentation and a community, if questions remain in spite.

Hello All,

I am working in the electronics engineering field at transientspecialists.com and truly enjoy your website. My curiosity with computer hardware began when I was young building my own desktop, and since has grown exponentially. Your website is extremely helpful and spend considerable amount of time on it. I also believe that your core goals of getting computers to the people of the world is amazing! Looking forward to continuing to read, and comment on these forms.

Regards,

Jeff

I'm Bob

I'm a retired programmer living in south Florida. I've been programming since computers had tubes. I've written portions of a BIOS, done performance analysis on new systems and written more application programs than I can remember.

I started using Caldera's OpenLinux and switched to SuSE which I used for many years. I'm now all Debian.

I use my computers to run my model trains and build structures for them, keep track of 10K books and work with my photographs.

I'm currently setting up a 3B+ to trouble shoot networks.

Eventually I'd like to set one up to run the trains.

Hai,

I am a newbie, not much to say about myself actually, just that I have experience programming in visual basic, c sharp, fortan and a load of other languages but no hardware experience whatsoever.

Hello,

I'm from Romania; I'm a Linux user and Python developer.
I'm using a few Raspberry Pi devices for video surveillance, media center, small website hosting, some home automation (lights, sensor, sound).
I created a few RPi projects such as alfred and picamweb which can be found on my github page.
You can find more details about me on my personal page.
I'm interested in Linux, Python, Raspberry Pi, PostgreSQL, Tornado, GIS
Relevant projects:

I go by Bodestone on all of the forums I partake in.

From the UK and generally a Windows guy with specialisation in SQL Server but I like to dabble now and then.

Pretty much still a beginner with Linux and the Pis as my dabbling is too infrequent for things to bed in properly but some of the basics are starting to bed in.

Pi projects include
-Firewalled guest access point to my wifi on an original B (completely forgotten all the knowledge from that but my neighbour paid for that pi at £5 a month for wifi access)
-3 controller (Cheapo USB) RetroPi carry kit re-partitioning the Maplin starter box - original B
-Google Cardboard Home - Pi3
-Homebrewed battery powered alexa box with Pi zero

I did build a Picade with a 3b but don'tconsider that as a proper project as it was a bought kit without deviation so far.
Oh, Yeah, and a PiTop in case any of my neices and nephews showed an inkling I wanted to see what it was like.

Hi,

I just picked up a toy programming language project I had put down a while ago and am working to make it useful (or at least interesting) for Raspberry Pi enthusiasts of all ages.

Hi I am Stephen. Im a dj music producer. Always had a love for technology. Just ordered my raspberry so I can have all my old retro classics in one place and to have a linux platform too. Grew up with all the retro stuff from c64, zxspectrum, amiga. cant wait to get it. Good to see a massive community too as if im stuck im sure im in safe hands.

Hi all,
Ive been playing with computers since I managed to scrounge the money for a ZX81 over 35 years ago. Never done much programming really, just a very small bit of web scripting and some Flash action script a few years ago. Bought a Pi3 B+ a couple of weeks ago after seeing one my nephew had been working with for his college course and seem to be instantly hooked.
Since then it has been paired with a touchscreen and Ive tried running it as a retro gaming machine, a media server and now its back to being a plain old Pi. I've bought a couple of really basic electronics kits and 2 Python books so have been doing my best to start to make sense of what I can. So far I have made LEDs flash, buttons work and a buzzer sounds, And Ive done the usual Hello World, done a bit with variables and some really basic python. I'm loving it. The excitement when I managed to put the wires in a breadboard in the right place and get the GPIO pin numbers right was ridiculous really. Small flashing lights shouldn't make a grown man that happy lol.
Anyway 2 days ago I got my second Pi (a Pi Zero W) and have another 3B+ and another Zero on the way, I have potential projects for them all. I might not exactly be the target age group for Raspberry Pi but I wish I had looked into it all years ago.
I'll stop this ramble now anyway,

Erik.

Hello everyone! I am Yusuf, I love taking things apart to see how the work as well as creating things :) . I am currently a student studying for iGCSEs. If you need any newbie help that's tech related, I might be able to help. Since I don't have an actual (actual) laptop I use a Raspberry Pi 3B+ as my desktop computer. I use a Raspberry Pi W as my website server, Raspberry Pi 2 as a security cam, and a RPi 3B as a media server from time to time. I thoroughly enjoy tinkering around with raspberry pi. Its cheap, fun and many things can be created from it :) .
1 * Raspberry Pi Zero W, 1 * Raspberry Pi 2, 1 * Raspberry Pi 3, 1 * Raspberry Pi 3B+, 1 * Raspberry Pi 4B :mrgreen:

Hi all,

My name is Jasper (36) and I am from the Netherlands. I work as a FPGA firmware engineer and for hobby I'd like to write some bare metal SW for any kind of application. For example a automatic Chicken coop door, and recently I bought a Raspberry pi to play with.
