I got a raspberry pi for my birthday a few weeks back and this weekend I finally had a spare few hours to throw at it.
I make a living as a c# programmer (doing vb6/.net on our legacy stuff *shudder*) and a strong 5+ years working in electronics engineering at the component level. So this little device looks like the perfect toy, saying that...I must say, im completely lost at where to start with this thing.
I got the OS working (Raspbian
), messed around with the command line briefly and with the more windows like side of things. I downloaded some apps had a bit of a play getting used to things then made a super simple python program which I ran in idle.
Does anyone have any suggestions where I can start to get my teeth into the more technical side of things? I've also never used Linux before in any meaningful way.
