Build a wireless home power monitoring system using Raspberry Pi
by Drew Fustini
Say you want to know how much electricity an air purifier is consuming? You can hook it up to the nifty Kill-A-Watt power meter (aka KaW). The KaW will keep track of and display the killowatt-hours, or kWh, used by the plugged in device. Read More

New and Notable on Element14
Assisting engineers involved in the design and development of electronic components and systems to success in their projects is the primary editorial objective of element14 and for that reason we want to bring to your attention a new community called Code Exchange, a place where engineers can help each other solve coding problems, swap code, and increase their coding skill set (particularly if they are involved with Raspberry Pi , as the section features tutorials from the Python Foundation to help engineers make the most of their Raspberry Pi's. You can upload your code, or embed a link to your GitHub repository).
Among other content we will be posting on Code Exchange in future will be a multi-part tutorial series on C/C++/C# and blogs on IDEs (and Dev Tools overall) for electronic engineers.
We hope you find Code Exchange interesting and informative reading. As always, if you have any comments or suggestions we'd like to hear from you.
