We had another cracking Raspberry Pi workshop last night! Over the course of 2.5 hours we covered enough material to help beginners get familiar with using a Raspberry Pi - a giant leap towards getting their projects done. If you're interested in attending one of these events, you can check out our workshops page to see availability.
Once you've got the LED blinking you're already half-way to the moon.
This week's hot tip:
ctrl + z will pause a command, and fg will resume it
An example: Ever been editing a text file in the shell and needed to quickly duck out of it to refer to some filename/path or other information? Rather than open another terminal session, you could pause nano with ctrl+Z. This puts nano in the background, and you're free to execute other commands in the shell. To bring nano back to the foreground, use the fg command. Give it a try!
If you live too far away to attend one of our in-house workshops, we've got you covered with our free online courses!
