Raspberry… a love story that lasts…

Raspberry PI, do you know it? Not the fruit, but the very small computer, cheap ($35) and that brings us back to the time when computer science was fiddling, art…

I own a few Raspberry. Some run 24 hours a day and others sleep until I’m interested enough in a project to devote myself to it.

I would like to share this passion, yes, yes, this passion for this little tech jewel in articles on this blog.

So let’s start from the beginning: what is a Raspberry PI according to Wikipedia:

The Raspberry Pi (/paɪ/) is a series of small single-board computers developed in the United Kingdom by the Raspberry Pi Foundation to promote teaching of basic computer science in schools and in developing countries.

The original model became far more popular than anticipated,[16] selling outside its target market for uses such as robotics. It is now widely used even in research projects, such as for weather monitoring[17] because of its low cost and portability. It does not include peripherals (such as keyboards and mice) or cases. However, some accessories have been included in several official and unofficial bundles.[16]


So initially the idea was to have a computer for computer learning. Goal reached without a doubt! By the end of 2019, 30 million Raspberry had been sold.

Be aware that this product is now known worldwide and that several sites are dedicated to it. In fact, cloud giants like AWS, Azure and GCP regularly use this tiny computer to demonstrate how their cloud services work.

Here is the official website: https://www.raspberrypi.org/ (follow my articles, as I will regularly add links to “Raspberryian” sites)

What can we do with a Raspberry? Answer: a lot, a lot of things.


200 projects… this is just the beginning…
