Welcome! This website has three sections covering Raspberry Pi, Arduino and ESP8266. Each section has a quick-start guide, information on how to build a variety of projects together with the associated software plus tips on avoiding common problems, programming for LCD and 7-segment LED displays, book recommendations and so on.
For projects and articles on the Arduino.
For projects and articles on the ESP8266.

WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH A PI
Here's an application that I developed a while ago to monitor the frequency of Great Britain's electricity network. You can read about how the site works and also why it's Great Britain and not UK here.
NEW PI 4 MODEL RELEASED
There is a new Pi 4 released. The primary changes are:
- 8GB of memory
- New Raspberry Pi OS name for Debian 32- and 64-bit versions - you'll need the 64-bit version to take advantage of 8GB in a single process. Other 64-bit OSes are Ubuntu and Gentoo
- 1GB model withdrawn from production
- Prices of 2GB and 4GB models are reduced
ABOUT THE WEBSITE
This site is designed to work with the current generation of browsers and I have tested it with IE, Chrome and Firefox. They are all supposed to conform to web standards and they do to a greater or lesser degree - the thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from! Some older browsers might not be able to display every aspect of the design as it is intended to look, nor some of the special characters.
