This email is to bring attention to a course that is being offered free of charge through Coursera. It is called “The Raspberry Pi Platform and Python Programming for the Raspberry Pi” and begins on August 29th I believe. I have taken a few courses through Coursera and have found it to a good platform to learn on.

I have enrolled in this course to check it out and if anyone else does it would be great to know in the course message boards that they are listeners to Podnutz.

Here is a link to the course:

Raspberry Pi and Docker: Tiny $35 computer gets major new release of HypriotOS
The Raspberry Pi computer may only cost $35, but it’s also extremely versatile: suited to learning to code, building appliances, and even running Docker containers.

Omega2: $5 Linux Computer with Wi-Fi, Made for IoT
Hi everyone!  Thanks to your incredible support, the Omega2 campaign was a huge success! We wouldn’t have been able to do it without you! It was an incredible journey for all of us here at Onion, and we hope you enjoyed it too!

Magenta and LK
LK is a Kernel designed for small systems typically used in embedded applications. It is good alternative to commercial offerings like FreeRTOS or ThreadX. Such systems often have a very limited amount of ram, a fixed set of peripherals and a bounded set of tasks.

Wire — modern, private communication. For iOS, Android, OS X, Windows and web.
Everything on Wire is always end-to-end encrypted, so all your conversations are private and secure. Wire is based in Switzerland and all your data is protected by European privacy laws.  No popups, takeovers, banners or anything like that. Your conversations belong to you.

Creating a Raspberry Pi cluster running Kubernetes, the shopping list (Part 1)
At Devoxx Belgium and Devoxx Morocco, Ray Tsang and I showed a Raspberry Pi cluster we built at Quintor running HypriotOS, Docker and Kubernetes.

Welcome to the Kubernetes on ARM project! Kubernetes on a Raspberry Pi? Is that possible? Yes, now it is. Imagine… Your own testbed for Kubernetes with cheap Raspberry Pis and friends.

Intel Atom isn’t dead: Next-gen chips aimed at embedded and IoT systems
Intel isn’t developing Atom chips for smartphones, tablets, or low-power laptops anymore. But it looks like the Atom brand will live on.  At the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco next week, the company will unveil some details about next-gen Atom chips based on the new Apollo Lake platform.

Raspberry Pi DOSBox: Play Classic DOS Games on the Pi
In this tutorial I go the through the steps of setting up Raspberry Pi DOSBox. This is a pretty easy process that will let you play the hundreds of great old DOS games that have been released as shareware, demos and of course freeware.
