@will Thank You. I am a beginner so at this point my interest is in Raspberry Pi and Arduino.

@monsoongrooverΒ 

Then I'd suggest that you stick with the Arduino for a while. Using a Raspberry Pi will require you to become familiar with the Linux operating system as well as Β either (or both) C(/C++) and Python.

Using Arduinos, you'll only need to learn C and a bit of C++, so it's a shallower learning curve πŸ™‚

Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want.

@will, @monsoongroover,

But just as satisfying.

  • My first Raspberry Pi project.
  • Python script blinking lights.

@monsoongrooverΒ 

It looks like you are well on your way.Β  Learning means understanding so I assume you understand the Python script and can modify or write your own code to do different things with the LEDs?

@robotbuilder Yes indeed. In this case I added more lights to a script that someone had written. Then I put it into a FOR loop and added an input requesting the number of iterations. And if you can control lights then you can control relays...

@monsoongrooverΒ 

Good job, I am a bit envious that you have an impressive looking oscilloscope.

Why not see if you can extend this sketch by blinking each LED independently and each at a different frequency?Β  You will learn a good deal from the exercise.

Keep going.

@will, @ronbentley1, @robotbuilder, et al

Β 

Thank You, gentlemen for your kind advice. @will : Yes I think I'll start with Arduino for the time being. That seems to be the fastest way to learn. @robotbuilder : I took some classes in Pascal and Fortran years ago so I get the general idea when I look at the scripts. I'm looking forward to learning C. @ronbentley1 : That was a good suggestion to extend the project. Yes, I had to learn a thing or two along the way. In this case it wasΒ  how to use 74HC595's and PWM. I did not write this code but it was a great learning experience just putting it together. Have a look :
