No coding required: Node-RED on a Raspberry Pi | Opensource.com

https://opensource.com/article/17/7/nodered-raspberrypi-hardware?sc_cid=7016000000127ECAAY Node-RED is an easy-to-use programming tool that can be used for handling IoT signals. This article shows that Node-RED can also be used to quickly integrate and test hardware devices. As you can see from this tutorial, connecting and testing a cellular mode with Raspberry Pi using Node-RED required no coding at all. For more information about

The State of Boards: Small, Simple Hardware Rules | Make

http://makezine.com/2017/06/27/state-boards-platforms-products-purposes-current-crop-microcontrollers-vies-attention/ Over the last few years, we’ve seen a huge growth in the number and variety of both microcontroller boards and single-board computers.  The modern era, defined by microcontrollers becoming conveniently packaged on boards, began with the Arduino. The “classic” Arduino layout, including the irritating, irregular offset between pins 7 and 8, has become a standard. Similarly,

Scratch 2.0: all-new features for your Raspberry Pi

https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/scratch-2-raspberry-pi/ Scratch 2.0 is now available as an offline app for the Raspberry Pi! This new version of Scratch allows you to control the Pi’s GPIO (General Purpose Input and Output) pins, and offers a host of other exciting new features. As with Scratch 1.4, Scratch 2.0 on the Raspberry Pi allows you to create code to

Apple co-founder Wozniak: Motivation is more important than knowledge

http://www.cnbc.com/2017/06/12/apple-co-founder-wozniak-motivation-is-more-important-than-knowledge.html The most important ingredient to becoming successful is having motivation, says Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. “If somebody is motivated and wants to do something, wanting — it’s emotional. That’s the person that is probably going to go out and find a way to actually get it done.” The Internet has made it possible for anyone with the

Who catches the IMSI catchers? Researchers demonstrate Stingray detection kit

That’s what University of Washington researchers Peter Ney and Ian Smith have attempted to create with SeaGlass. “Up until now the use of IMSI-catchers around the world has been shrouded in mystery, and this lack of concrete information is a barrier to

Thin Client Market Embraces Raspberry Pi | Linux.com

https://www.linux.com/news/event/open-source-summit-na/2017/5/thin-client-market-embraces-raspberry-pi Is the Raspberry Pi ready to take over the low-end thin client market? This week, NComputing unveiled the RX-HDX, its second Raspberry Pi based thin client. In addition, ViewSonic announced a software upgrade for the Pi-based SC-T25 thin client that it announced last year. The future of thin clients — low-cost, remotely managed virtual client
