If you found this workshop useful, the single most wonderful way to help us keep making more is to share or recommend it to someone :slight_smile:

We’re full time makers and are here to help! If you have any questions what-so-ever, then please post a new forum topic and we’ll dive into it straight away.

Thank you so much for the great tutorial. I do have one question. Particle.IO has stopped supporting Raspberry Pi and I am unable to get Particle to claim my Raspberry Pi- any suggestion on other sites that will also work with IFTTT and Pi? Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi Robin,

Check out this forum discussion:

The very last post suggests some ways to get a stubborn Pi to connect to Particle.io.

Alternatively you could try Adafruit.io.

hi just started with raspberry pi and coding and im very new to this all. i started coding for chapter 2s breadboard introduction and when i try to run it it says no module named rpi refering to the first line.

Hi Tim,

Python code is case-sensitive. have you entered it as “RPi” or “rpi”?

What editor are you using for your code?

i already instal the nobs but is not properly working


Just got the Raspberry Pi a few days ago.

It looks like Mathematica and Wolfram are not included. But maybe I am wrong.

I tried to follow “Google” instructions to install them, but failed.

How do I get them installed.

Hi Chris,

Try running the following in the terminal in sequence

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install wolfram-engine

I have a different design from what the breadboard has on the raspberry pi course. Do I have to take a basic course on circuitry before I watch the course on the raspberry pi?


Welcome to the Forum, Ryan.

If you can figure out how to use your version of the breadboard for the course without much trouble, it should be ok.

If you are not familiar with the basics of electronics and circuitry, would not hurt to take the other one.



In our graduation project (an autonomous warehouse robot), some of the processing is going to happen in a ground station on a laptop which is supposed to send information (such as the drop-off location A, B, C, or D) to the raspberry pi. Accordingly, raspberry pi is going to decide the next steps.

Locations A, B, C, and D are already defined in the raspberry pi code but the selection is happening on the laptop. (Some of the information are time-sensitive)

How do I establish such a connection between a laptop and a raspberry pi? Are there any resources already available? Because I cannot find any.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Dalila,

Are your laptop and Pi connected to the same network or were you looking to send communications via a wired communication protocol like UART?

If you want to send messages via a network the difficulty comes in that there are so many ways to go about it but they all rely on a different network foundation. We don’t deal with internet communications too extensively in our in-house guides but we have a couple that may be relevant.
We have a guide on using the Flask Web App with Python to setup a webserver.
You could use MQTT as the communications protocol with Home Automation

Andreas Spiess has excellent video tutorials on internet-based communications.
