Program a Duino with your RPI and then debug it

Back the RasPio Duino and Pi Debug Clip Kickstarters

Program a Duino with your RPI and then debug it

I’m watching (and backing) a couple of Kickstarter projects at the moment the RasPio Duino and the Pi Debug Clip– and they are both funded.  As they are both in the last day of their campaigns I thought I would briefly mention them here as they are both relevant to what I have been writing about of late.

It's all about me...

I'm a 46 year old married father who works with websites for a living. Doing that for work means I dont often update this site, unless I can think of something useful to say. I mostly like taking photos - and most of my internet presence now will be related to that.
