Python and Raspberry Pi in education

We love Python at the Raspberry Pi Foundation—it's our go-to general purpose programming language for most projects and activities.

Audio-Video Production On Linux: Best Software

Filed under
Linux
Software

Over the years, I've heard both Windows users and Linux enthusiasts make the claim that professional media production on Linux is impossible.

been getting progressively better at *not* merging tons of stuff after
-rc1.
