What is the Raspberry Pi?

The Raspberry Pi is a miniature computer that is ideal for handicrafts or home automation. Thanks to its controllable IO (input-output) pins, sensors and other hardware can be read out and controlled very easily. Because of this and its low price, it is also a very popular way to get started with (hardware-related) programming for beginners, children and those interested.

In the meantime, the Raspberry Pi has been sold millions of times and there is a ready-made solution for almost every application, or a way to achieve your dream project. This page deals with all topics related to the Raspberry Pi. This includes simple tutorials on the use of sensors, pure help on programming topics, to complex Raspberry Pi tutorial series in the field of home automation, robotics and many more. You can simply browse in the menu and on the page or leave a comment. Since new Raspberry Pi instructions and tutorials appear regularly, it is definitely worth activating the newsletter.

In addition to many other interesting projects with the Pi, a self-made robot is a small highlight because it brings together many components. In the following parts, we will create a robot with many (independent) functions step by step. In the first part of the Raspberry Pi robot tutorials, we…

Pretty much any hobby project can be implemented with the Raspberry Pi, but getting started is often not that easy, especially for children. Due to the low price, the Raspberry Pi comes without accessories, which is also a small hurdle. The CrowPi 2 is a Raspberry Pi laptop that tries…

One of the most popular projects besides home automation and robots is the Raspberry Pi weather station. This can be used in both indoor and outdoor circumstances and can be expanded as required. We either display the data from other devices via a web interface or use the Raspberry Pi…

The ESP8266 NodeMCU is a small microcontroller that has GPIOs and can connect to the Internet via WLAN. This and the low price make it very interesting compared to Arduinos, for example. In upcoming tutorials, we want to use the inexpensive ESP8266 modules to send data via a Wifi connection to…

In the age of the Internet of Things, more and more devices are connected. This is also suitable for your own Raspberry Pi home automation. However, each device uses a different transmission protocol, which can make controlling them quite uncomfortable. Fortunately, there is a remedy for this: The Smart Home…

A connection via SSL/TLS protects the data traffic by sending packets encrypted. To be able to establish such a connection, you need a certificate from a trustworthy provider, which usually costs over $20 per year. Thanks to the Let’s Encrypt Initiative, such SSL certificates are now available to everyone – free…
