Raspberry Pi Workshop 22/11/17

What do you want to make? With another Raspberry Pi Beginners Workshop wrapped up there are another three Newcastle-based makers who have levelled up their Raspberry Pi, Linux, and Python skills - bringing them one step closer to completing the next project.

Over two-and-a-half hours we covered the essential skills for getting stuff done on a Raspberry Pi. As always, there was a healthy interest in retro-gaming on Raspberry Pi, and one participant had plans to build a terrarium climate-controller.


This week's Hot-Tip

Move your Python code around quickly with the indenting shortcuts: -

  • Increase Indent: Ctrl + ]
  • Decrease Indent: Ctrl + [

This is super useful for moving big sections of code in, or out, of loops and if statements.
