RaspberryPi work station

When Simon got a new RaspberryPi 3 from Sinterklaas on Sunday joy quickly turned into drama as he discovered the old (and only) keyboard we had at home was outdated and had no usb connection. His original plan was to use the television screen as the RaspberryPi screen and that would have let towards constant struggle with those other members of the family who actually wanted to watch tv. What made things worse was that it was Sunday and all Belgian computer stores (and all other Belgian stores) were closed. Simon was devastated as he’d really set his mind on this project. We jumped in the car and drove to The Netherlands where people never stop working and neither does MediaMarkt. Within an hour we got a wireless keyboard and a nice Samsung screen, both at a good price, and went for a drink on the Grote Markt square of the old Dutch town Bergen op Zoom. And now we’ve got one more “desktop”.

Simon has been using this single board computer to train html and JavaScript. His favourite is setting the background colour in hexadecimals.
