    I was given one as a gift and embarassingly tried my hand at a few projects with little results, definitely check out the rasberry pi python projects, some pretty cool stuff like Boris the twitter dino bot :p

    I'm a python programmer(not a pro and not a beginner) but I've never heard of rasberry pi. I think it's kinda embarrassing not knowing about it. Could someone care to share?

    Appreciate it. :)

    Raspberry pi is simply a mini computer with a very good processing to price ratio. They are also extremely small and cheap so they can be used for a number of projects.
    I started a diy project that pans a camera as it does a time lapse to create some really cool effects.

    People also use them to mine bitcoins I believe..... thousands and thousands of mini computers churning cash... cha ching :D

    Raspberry pi is a small computer. That's it. For example you can install raspbian on it (raspberry flavored debian) and you have fully functional linux machine.

    I used raspberry pi as a simple server for internal API. Nothing fancy.

    Not really. They use raspberry pi as a central place that send commands to miners. 1 raspberry pi and thousands and thousands of miners :)

    Just bought one for our son for his 16th B Day..
    He has plans to add some buttons / screen / joystick and build himself and "Old School" arcade game.
    Then has plans for me to build him a cabinet for it!

    Haven't tried a rasp pi yet, but I love messibg with the couple of arduinos I have! I'm slowly making an autonomous quad copter. Autonomous rc car was pretty fun too.
