And I do all kinds of stupid/fun stuff with it.
I have a pi i'd like to use for something else besides roms.

I also have SD card for the pi which has python on it but never really played with.

Yeah, working in a Linux VM is ok, but rather boring. Pretty fun when you can make things light up, have it email you the realtime room temperature/humidity levels, etc., all for a $30 Pi add-on.

It's gotten my son interested as well as he loves changing the text on it. Showed him how to remote into the Pi and he has a good time editing the code.

I was just teasing you. Just about any modern hardware is fine for what the OP is trying to accomplish. Python is python What is your sons editor of choice?

My current project is making a metronome with one of these mounted on an Arduino to display and control bpm/time signature.

I have a Korg metronome I use when practicing on the guitar but I thought why not try making my own.

I installed IDLE as it's pretty simple and fast.

I thought so.

I have an old Dell R710 i use as a home server running Proxmox with a bunch of VMs, Arch is really only on my desktop and laptop. I don't work as a sys admin or anything so setting up that server with a hypervisor and RAID on ZFS was a learning project in itself.

This is something I have always been interested. Now that the industry I'm in is looking much deeper into automation it has peeked my interest even more. I can only come up with automation ideas, not actually write the scripts to fulfill them.

I do have a networking background that has slowly eroded away as I don't practice it and it's not my role anymore but I'd like to get back into learning new things.

Is this your first step into programming period? As in, jumped straight into learning an object-based language without the foundational knowledge and core concepts of programming in general?

I have a CS degree but thankfully don't have to code much outside of some VBA in Excel every now and then.

Anyone here use R or RStudio? I've had to dabble a bit in that lately and have been surprised with it's statistical power.
