Finally my Asus tinkerboard arrived.


Is it awesome? not sure yet…

Yes, it packs more power than raspberry pi, but it falls behind in so many things

The software is basically inexistent You get a standar linux and nothing more With no further ado, lets get it going.

step 1: ssh to it

	ssh linaro@your_ip

pwd: linaro

step 2: install go

	wget https://storage.googleapis.com/golang/go1.8.1.linux-armv6l.tar.gz
	tar -C /usr/local -xzf go1.8.1.linux-armv6l.tar.gz
	export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin

… aaaaaaannnd I am out of space :'(

something is not right here, I have a 32gb sd card, I run fdisk and check that indeed my partition is 29gb but somehow my /root is locked to 2gb

well, anyway, lost a day playing around with that, in the end formatted my sd card before loading the image and it works.

Raspberry pi + ruby + sinatra = #winning

There is something about hardware/low level development that amazes me. I am not really good at it, I don’t actually want to be, my relation with hardware is the same I have with sports: I love to learn new sports, practice it a little bit, but when it starts to get too competitive, ie, the guys are getting serious about it, I loose interest.

That being said, I have to say I’ve played a lot with this things. The first one was the pic. I friend of mine(electric engineer) helped me to get started and to like it. The next step was to upgrade(or is it downgrade?) to arduino, a platform much easier than pic, and that comes ready for development. I got a lot of fun with that, but then when I’ve moved to london, I brought just the essential, so it was left behind.

But when I read about the new raspberry pi, got all excited again! I would be finally able to create high level code and run it in a computer with the size of a credit card. Then you ask: but master, how can I do that???

Simple little grasshopper, you just have to have a pi and a little patience. step1: install ruby; step2: install sinatra; step3: install node.js, and this is the tricky one, I had no idea it was needed… run your code and GG!

Now, making your rasp visible to the outer world… that is for another post. ps: It involves changing your router settings, and that…. that is enough to make me sad…
