    Dear hosts,

    thanks a lot for this podcast. It was a great guest, because hearing her talk got me fired up to try and learn and experiment with the Pi, in stead of collecting dust in my cupboard.
    One of the things I would like to get out of this podcast is reference materials of how I can get going with my Pi and start my own project. Because there is so much out there, it’s a bit overwhelming to pick a starting point. I would like to learn to program Python 3 for example but I have no idea where to start. I’ll try to use the materials and projects referenced in the podcast to start wading in and hopefully it will get and keep me going.

      Thanks for the comment Lieven! A couple of books I would suggest for you are “Raspberry Pi Cookbook” by Simon Monk and “Raspberry Pi Cookbook for Python Programmers” by Tim Cox. Both of those have great entry level projects and code examples to get you ramped up at a nice pace. Whenever you feel that you are ready to level up, please send us another comment and I’ll put you in touch with several other books. Thanks again!

    Thanks for the link to changing the power supply to the USB ports — I just got a pi 2 and want to have a NAS for backups, personal storage, etc. but my portable wd hard drive only has a usb power supply

    The interview with Cat was great — it’s exciting to see someone so passionate go headfirst into technology and programming (I’m in a similar boat)

    Finally, thanks for putting together this podcast in general. I had been listening to luddites for a few months and then went to Isaac’s meetup and got more interested in pi related stuff. I haven’t listened to the recent joeress podcasts, but maybe I should give those a listen to as well 😉
