raspBerry PI

The raspberry PI Prozessor [1], nicely embedded in a simple but powerful board, seems to be a universal tool to integrate knowledge about hardware, the linux operating system, a huge space of available software, many programming languages, and a whole bunch of additional electronic components allowing lots of interesting experiments.

On this site it will be explored how one can built up step by step experiments attached to the topic of ‚learning‘.


There are today more than 100 programming languages around. Every has their own merits. In the realm of ‚learning‘ and close to hardware applications the programming language ‚python‘ has some popularity.[2] Therefore we will use this language here.


Having hardware, knowing a programming language, playing with ideas — this all can only awake to some real experience when it will be transformed to some working system which allows real experiments. This shall be happen on this site. The Order of experiments is completely driven by ‚curiosity‘ and by ‚uprising questions‘.
