Do you own a Raspberry Pi?

Yes, though I prefer Open Source Hardware like Arduino, BeagleBone, MinnowBoard and OlinuXino.

Have you used an Arduino or other small microcontroller?

Yes, Arduino (AVR), PIC, ARM

Do you program? What languge(s)?

Yup: C, C++, Java, Perl, Javascript, Python

Do you build circuits?

Yup, electronics and embedded are my hobby

Do you see the Rasberry Pi as (a) a sort of small tablet/mobile computer (b) a headless hardware controller (c) some other wacky thing (d) that's the Big Question, isn't it?

The Pi along with other inexpensive Single Board Computers (SBCs) allow almost anyone to integrate the power of Linux into embedded projects. Linux makes networking and peripheral support *so* much easier


Passionate about Open Source Hardware & Open Source Software. Fascinated by embedded systems and the Linux kernel. Hackerspace tourist.
