There are 3 really powerful tools that every Linux / UNIX professional should know: grep, SED, and AWK. Our grep, SED and AWK Best Practices training course will give you hands-on experience with all three.
On our Bash Shell Scripting training course you will learn to write and debug increasingly complex scripts to automate tasks and make your life with Linux easier.
There are many flavours of Linux, but the majority of them carry over common themes and functionality. For dyed-in-the-wool Microsoft Windows users, a switch to a UNIX-like OS can be daunting, but it needn’t be scary with the right guidance.
Here at Framework Towers we’ve been keeping a keen eye on developments on the Raspberry Pi project – and according to the teaser posted yesterday on the landing page at www.raspberrypi.org it looks like we are about to see the release of this fantastic piece of kit into the wild. Announcement will happen at 0600h GMT on Wednesday 29 February 2012.
Update, 17 May:
Yay – we’ve finally received an invitation to order a Raspberry Pi!
Update, 02 May:
Still no Raspberry Pi :(
I thought we were pretty quick with getting our orders in, but clearly not as quick as the 700 who have already received their kit.
“Our second batch of Raspberry Pi’s is currently being put together, and we’re expecting it in next week. We’ll be inviting the next 4,000 people in our queue to come into the Raspberry Pi store and place their order very soon.”
Will we be one of the 4,000? Let’s hope so….
Update, 23 March:
RS Online have sent out an update to registered parties – good to know they’re taking a measured approach and keeping people informed as to why. No complaints from us that their main concern is quality over quantity!
Welcome to the latest Raspberry Pi update from RS Components!
Much has been happening behind the scenes since you received our last update, not least the start of compliance testing on the Raspberry Pi.
Why are we doing this? Compliance testing is an essential part of bringing any electronic product to market. The Raspberry Pi is being tested to make sure it conforms to all the regulations that apply to electronic devices around the world. This means that we can be sure the Raspberry Pi we deliver to you meets the correct standards and is as safe as you would expect any electronic device you purchase to be.
We’re working with the Raspberry Pi Foundation to manage the testing process as quickly as possible, while ensuring all tests are carried out to guarantee safety. More information is being posted on the Raspberry Pi website , as well as on our own FAQ pages rswww.com or DesignSpark. We’re also regularly tweeting updates on progress. Follow @RSElectronics on twitter to catch the latest news.
Alongside this, we’ve also been contacting the first group of people who registered for a Raspberry Pi from RS, to help us plan delivery of the initial batch of boards. In next week’s update, we’ll provide more information on how we’re managing the queue and the order process.
Update, 9 March:
Aaargh – looks like we’ll be waiting a while longer yet – manufacturing mistake delays shipping of first batch of Raspberry Pi’s.
Update, 6 March:
Looks like we’re on a waiting list… Had the following email from RS Components over the weekend.. (more…)
Our Introduction to C++ Training Course aims to give developers a solid foundation in the language, syntax and best practises of developing and compiling C++ code.
