My name is Erich. I have a dgeree in Electrical Engineering and am currently working as a Database administrator and Report developer.
I am also a not so active Amateur radio operator.
I enjoy computers and Gymnastics scorekeeping.
I am starting to put together a sophisticated Morse coder keyer using an Arduino board.
Have a great day.
My name is Sebastian, I am from Berlin, Germany, I have a degree in computer science and recently started home brewing beer :-) . Since this is not only a lot of fun but also a lot of work I wanted to start automate part of the brewing process. I did some sodering when I was 10-12 but never got any "real" project done.
So basicly I don't have a clue yet where to start but I hope to get support from this great community and a push in the right direction. I think of using an Arduino or an RasberryPi plus some relays and temperature sensors...
Hello. I am a 13 year old minneapolis native who is currently living in Kuwait. (My parents are teaching there). I got my start in making with the raspberry pi and I am interested in arduino.
Hello to Erich, Sebastian and bluzomby (great username btw!) - looks like all three of you have an interest in Arduino! If you haven't already I encourage you to check out our latest RoadTest, Adafruit FLORA which is an Arduino compatible wearable technology device.
Hi I am Swisstone, - for my day job I am a Tech admin for a large manufacturing company that manufactures commercial refrigeration systems.
I normally spend my day helping people with their day-to-day IT issues, setting up new hardware/servers and creating bespoke solutions in PHP... (Whatever needs doing really!)
This is great as it helps me with my hobby - setting up my raspberry pi and being a geek!
So far I have created various websites using apache/php/MySQL - of interest to the PI would be http://www.rpie.co.uk a bit of a work in progress but hopefully will become a help to others.
I have had my PI running as a web server for normal pages and an "on demand" webcam. I have set up the new Camera to take various time lapse images and make some great short films... I hope to document a tutorial in the near future. I have also setup a motion triggered script to record only when there is some action!
Here is the camera in action...
My next task it to get a battery supply to the pi so I can locate the camera in some more interesting spots!
All my projects will be documented on my website over the coming weeks!
Welcome to the community.
Would you share your camera design with the community?
I do lightning research and your rig looks like it would work with my data measurement equipment.
Its a simple design...
I put a quick post in the Raspberry Pi area...

Hello! My name is Leslie. I am an adult student pursuing a bachelors in Computer Information Systems. So I am here to learn all I can about raspberry pi. We are going to develope a program in class, I don't know what yet but since I am new I found you and seems like a good place to start. I think it has something to do with south Africa and the schools there. Thank you for this site!
My name is Abie, from South-Africa, a complete idiot with regards to micro computing. I came across this forum while trying to find alternatives to my current controlling system. I am very interested in everything this field can do to change our lives. I manufacture fodder green houses and up to now we bought all our controlling systems off the shelve, but I know there must be cheaper alternatives that can be made to our specific needs.
You will see a lot of me as I am going to develop and build a controlling system that can do what I want it to do, with the help of all the experts on this forum, that is if they are willing to teach an old dog new tricks.
I want to say thank you in advance.
Hi Leslie and Abie - welcome to you both! Leslie, perhaps you and Abie should chat? Leslie, you mention you're in a class building a program to help South Africa schools and Abie you're in South Africa
Hello everyone, my name is Mike and I'm interested in anything and everything about battery-power and low-power design. I started a blog last month on low power design for hardware and firmware developers at http://cmicrotek.com/wordpress_159256135/ to share what I've learned.
It seems that low power design is still considered proprietary information instead of basic engineering knowledge so most of what you find on the web is the same basic stuff just repeated over and over. I'm interested in sharing from my experience and learning what others have discovered, both the good and the horror stories. I will also be starting a Low Power Design blog here and hopefully we can get some good discussions going.
Hi. Just to introduce myself,my name is "Hutch" and I'm a 63 year old mostly retired electrician. I have just started playing around with Arduino, and I have a lot to learn.
Any electronics knowledge I have has been self taugh as a hobby. Unfortunately, that was many years ago, and comprised of no transistors, and lots of vacuum tubes.
The solid state devices have changed the field to the point that I feel like I have to start from scratch, and programming is a whole new can of worms.
I hope to be able to find a lot of information here, and maybe someday I'll be able to give out little information to help someone else.
New community member. Not new to computers.
35 years in IT, some hardware design, network management, lots of software development (12 languages), web site design, BBS, telephony, mini and mainframe. Mainly Unix (and Linux) but well versed in Windows (former MCSE), network management (CISCO programming). Assembled Apple ][ 's back in the day.
Needed a new hobby so purchased a RPi and loving it so far. Need to pick up a few more peripherals and waiting for some to arrive (DS3231 - RTC w/temp sensor, 20x4 LCD, etc)
Love the tutorials and documentation so far and hope to contribute what I can.
If you're new to element14 Community (or just never had the chance to say hello), we'd love to meet you! Take a second to introduce yourself & say hello to your new friends!
We can't wait to meet you!
