Caught The Raspberry Pi Bug!

I’ve recently caught the Raspberry Pi bug when I walked into Fry’s Electronics and started looking at all the awesome “Maker” gadgets on sale. I have always wanted to pick up a Pi and find a purpose for one in the household, and I’ve recently fallen in love with Raspbian and Kali Linux.

My first Raspberry Pi 3 Model B I picked up at Fry’s electronics came bundled with a breadboard, LED lights, and basic resistors for learning. Unfortunately the documentation that’s supposed to be coupled with the kit wasn’t the best. I might revisit this in the future after finding the “Freenove RFID Starter Kit” with a link to a fairly up-to-date Github repository with thorough documentation.

Currently I am using the Raspberry Pi as a motivational piece of hardware to keep tinkering away with Linux based operating systems. I am currently using both Raspbian / Debian and Kali Linux on a single Pi. At the moment, I am only using the Pi as a sandbox I can easily SSH or VPN into and not have to worry about juggling VM’s locally. I also want to continue working with the hardware to get into more advanced adventures like setting up security cameras, lasers, perhaps load Docker onto a Pi!

With the announcement of Raspberry Pi 3+ I decided to purchase second board and have begin thinking about what I could possibly do with two… or more! I certainly would like to be apart of the #MakerRevolution!
