I have created a new blog devoted to covering my experiences interfacing the Raspberry Pi to various devices. 

 

http://raspberrypihobbyist.blogspot.com/

 

While I am an experienced hobbyist and professional, the blog is targeted at the beginner to intermediate level hobbyist.  Since the Raspberry Pi is intended to inspire students to learn technology, I feel this is the best level to address.

 

My first project is to replace the aging PC based alarm and home automation system with an RPi based solution.

 

Several posts are already up:

  • How I set up my Pi
  • Creating an RS-232RS-232 Serial Interface for the Pi
  • Information on GPIO Circuit Protection Options
  • GPIO Input Circuit with Opto-Coupler protection
  • GPIO control of a relay (coming soon)

 

I hope this community finds my blog useful.
