One of the really nice things about the newest builds of Raspbian is that it comes with just about all the software you need to get running. The downside of that is that all that software takes up a ton of space. RasPi.tv points out you can quickly snag about a 1GB back by deleting two apps: LibreOffice and Wolfram. Read more...

According to Gartner, there will be nearly 21 billion devices connected to the Internet by the year 2020. That’s a lot of devices. While I have no doubt these predictions are reasonably correct, that doesn’t make it any easier to build applications that connect these devices together in useful ways. Fortunately, there are solutions that make this job easier.
Somehow or another, the Raspberry Pi has become a standardized form factor for single board computers. There are now Raspberry Pi-shaped objects that can do anything, and between the Odroid and bizarre Intel Atom-powered boards, everything...Show More Summary
The world of consumer and professional drones is evolving very fast and so are flight controller systems for UAVs & Drones. At the same time, many developments are being made for consumer electronics at a low cost and the Raspberry Pi is one of the leaders in this field. This raised questions in the minds of people [...]Show More Summary
The 5 megapixel OmniVision camera sensor at the heart of the Raspberry Pi camera module released in 2013 was discontinued toward the end of the following year. Makers have been able to continue including camera boards in their projects though, thanks to some nifty stockpiling by retailers. Show More Summary
The Raspberry Pi Foundation have today announced that they are introducing a new 8MP camera board to replace their popular 5MP OmniVision based camera board. The new camera, based around a Sony IMX219 8MP sensor, is available at the same low price of $25 in both regular colour as well as infrared versions. With the [...]Show More Summary

If you haven't already been introduced to the coolness of the Raspberry Pi, then it's really about time to catch up to the rest of us tech tinkerers. For the uninitiated, the Raspberry Pi is a credit card-sized, single-board micro-computer that’s been opening up all kinds of programming possibilities for the tech-savvy learner. Show More Summary
Still can’t get your hands on a Pi Zero? We know. Why not de-solder a few headers from a Raspberry Pi 2 to fit in your next project instead? Using a pair of 2.5? HDD enclosures, [nodenet] made a mini linux laptop using the RaspberryShow More Summary
Now that I have a working first application working, I wanted to see how far I can take the application writing model on the Raspberry Pi. Our first Windows application is a WPF application. Let see if we can leverage the full power of WPF and take it to the next level. Why WPF application will [
Since the introduction of the Raspberry Pi Zero, the hacker, maker, and hobbyist electronics world has been thrown into turmoil. ‘The Raspberry Pi Foundation is corrupt,’ the detractors said, ‘and the Pi Zero is just a marketing ploy to get their name out.’ Others chimed in that the Raspberry Pi Zero doesn’t even exist.
