Now what am i worried and excited about? Well i would have to say that i'm not all that worried about programming on the pi as i have done it before. However i can definitely say that I am excited to start doing new things with the pi and making all sorts of cool stuff.
There are a number of advantages to using the pi to program. One such advantage being that, if you need to connect to hardware using things like gpio pins, you already have access to them, since the pi as a set of gpio pins on board. Another advantage is that it is small and can be attached to things that need to have some sort of computer on board. So overall there are a number of advantages to programming using the pi.
There are also a number of advantages to programming on Windows or Mac computers. The biggest advantage definitely being that the they are just simply put faster and can run programs more quickly. Another advantage is that they can run a much larger variety of programs and they can run much more powerful programs. So there are also a number of advantages to programming on a Windows or Mac computer.
So what do you think you should program with? The Raspberry Pi or a Windows/Mac computer.
So what commands are used quite often in the terminal? Well i have found that the most common include commands such as cd, dir, python, sudo, apt-get, and those are the most common that I have used.
A question I have about the terminal is, how powerful and useful can it really be? I want to know this because like I use it to install programs and run programs I write but that is all I have used it for as of yet.
The pi is rather different when compared to other computers. The first and most notable thing is that the pi is quite small, one may even call it tiny. Another thing that makes the pi different is that it is quite versatile, you can put it in small places, attach it to things you're making, and there are all sorts of operating systems available for it. So overall the raspberry pi is quite different from other computers.
I had decent time setting up the pi, no problems, i did it before the class started though so i found a guide on the pi website, it was decent.
I used SD formatter to format my SD card! It was cool, i just kinda sat there while it did its work.
I dont really have any questions about the pi as of yet.
