Do you remember the LCD display? I’ve connected it successfully to an Arduino lately, so when I got my Raspberry Pi some days ago it was just a matter of time to try connecting the two:
I followed the nice instructions by Adafruit, connected all the wires, ran the code, and everything worked great.
The code is written in Python, so that’s maybe the next language to learn for me ;)
The GPIO capabilities of the Raspberry Pi look very promising, so I might use them regularly in future projects, especially when a decent amount of storage or a network connection is required (both provided by the Raspberry Pi in a very convenient way).
