Hello ,
my name is Mike Hurley. I am an out and out mainframer that is why Im a fan of the Pi, because its true to the core of computing.
Im using my PIs and accessories to subliminaly educate myself and my children whilst we enjoy playing around with computing and electronics, and also as a learning medium to teach the English language to French kids.
I vote for Eben to be on either DWTS or I'm A Celebrity as thats where the PI world should be, its done a great service to many.
Remember there is no such thing as the cloud, its just somebody elses computer.

Hello, I'm Yanazake. I've always been one to like having a really customizable machine in my hands, and the Raspberry Pi came to my attention recently. I'm not good with circuitry and stuff, but maybe I can come up with something if I can be patient and have some helping hands.

My name is Ron and came across the Raspberry Pi while reading the manual of a navigation program called OpenCPN, had no idea what it was, did some research (I really thought it was a raspberry pie and someone was being facetious haha) then took the plunge intending to use it as a stand alone chartplotter/navigation system, being more of a hardware and windows person was totally confused, (what in the world is a repository haha). now three weeks later with lots of walking away in disgust it is starting to fall into place, so much so that the laptop is used as a back up device. I have noticed there are several references to Plymouth, and am wondering if that is a reference to Plymouth England, I do know the Plymouth College of Techmology has a a very active IT department and if I had not joined the Royal Navy probably would have gone there. So now the goal is to build my navigation system and anything else I can think of and follow Sir Francis Chichester's route across the Atlantic and sail into the Barbican in Plymouth using the Raspberry Pi (along with another Raspberry Pi as a back-up).

Hi All

My name is Greg and i am 46 years young :) Born in Poland, lived in Italy in the 80s but only few years, moved to Canada ( YYZ and YYC ) then after 30 years in Canada moved back to Europe and currently live and work in Germany. My computer interest started in the early 80s with the introduction to ZX80 , Amstrad and C64. :) Since then computers have been part of my life, through working on number of computer programming projects, web site design, and now working in AV / IT industry. Now getting more into Pi with few projects i would love to get done next year. In my time outside of work i try to spend as much time with my family as possible. My interests besides the obvious is music, movies, geocaching and photography.

Happy Holidays / Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.

Hope to met new people and continue learning :)

I'm Hedwig and I'm from Belgium.

I have an intrest in digital electronics in general and Raspberry PI in particular, programming and starting with Fusion 360 and 3D printing.
From education I'm programmer - but that is already a long time about ;-)

I already learned a lot from this community, and hope to get to the point that I myself can post some hints/solutions.

Hi i am theGnome and I am an alco... Wait... Wrong introduction... Let me try that again...

Hi I am theGnome and I like long walks on the.... Wait wait... Wrong introduction. One more time!

Hii I am theGnome. And I am a programmer. I been wanting to get into the RPi stuff for a few years now, since I heard about them in college so early 2000s. I want to make a real breakthrough in UI/UX development and design for the future (looking at you Augmented and Virtual Realities) with emphasis for those that are medically incapable of clicking, walking, seeing, hearing, etc.

Hi all,

I'm Chris from Brisbane, Australia. I run a small tech consulting company that mostly caters to small businesses... but I'm also a tinkerer at heart.

My background is heavily Windows based, but after running through a few projects with the help of some very smart Linux/Pi people, I'm slowly stepping into a whole new world.

I've got a number of Pi based projects happening at the moment so I'm sure you'll see me in the "Troubleshooting" section!

I'm Michel, 27, and I decided to start off the new year with Pi! First discovered these little gadgets when I read about a motorized skateboard half a year ago and now I am expecting my own 3B+ in the mail tomorrow!

A complete lack of programming skill or affinity for hardware, but a curious child at heart who wishes to learn. I'll be proud if I can turn it on and keep it running. From there we'll take baby steps...

Hey all! I'm new here, and new to the world of Pi in general. I've looked at both Pi and Arduino in the past, and I went with a Pi. I got a CanaKit starter kit with a Pi 3 B+. I'm not new to hardware in general, but I am new to designing/building circuits as well as the world of electronics engineering.

My dad was pretty good with electronics. I recall him fixing broken connections in various devices by re-soldering connections that had broken, and things of that nature. He was also a computer hardware guy. He was the neighborhood "fix it" when it came to computers. I followed him and his work for several years growing up, but I ended up going the software route.

Forward to today, I'm a professional software engineer with about 7 years of professional experience, but I've been programming for about 20 years in total. I'm a polyglot, and the languages I've used in any capacity range from C++ (my first ever language) all the way to web technologies, databases, desktop applications, Java, C#, Python, some x86 ASM and so on.

I'm looking forward to learning and building with the Pi. I've already received some solid help here, and I hope to eventually be able to contribute in such a way myself.

So ... hi!

Hi guys,

Rex here, happy to join here and would love to learn more. Currently I'm interested in building any that used a raspberry pi and someday I can make my own project.

Thank you.
