The raspberry pi and similar uC like the beagle bone will revolutionize the hobby micro control world.  I was designing a home automation system based on a PIC  I had five hundred dollars and a thousand hours tied up in it.  I replaced it with a Pi and two weeks of programming.  It is almost done and way better than before.  

Anyone want to buy some experienced PIC's?  LOL

Hey guys I was thinking about codes for games on the raspberry pi.  Like basic codes so I can create my own games.  Can you guys help?

Thanks,

Ethan

Hi Ethan,

Not sure what exactly you are asking.  I am more interested in controls, but gaming is fun.  If it is your first attempt, I would use google to find a premade example, and then modify it.  Once you get the hang of it, you can reuse some of the code to make your own game.

I believe python is used mostly on the Pi for programming. Try googling "python rasberry pi game" or similar.

Good luck!

Steven

I have similar experience like Steven
Once you start working with this device the PIC efforts to get a task done seem like prehistoric.
Lots of information is available on YouTube and web downloads
I downloaded the pcb footprints for eagle (pcb design software)
Lots of fun working with this hardware.
