Arduino to Raspberry – A convert?

So I recently learned just how easy it is to do GPIO on the raspberry pi. So I tried it.  I already had several zero W’s, but none with headers. So during my last trip to Micro Center I picked one up with the headers.  I put Raspian on it and was ready to go. After some quick Googling I found an example. Got that running and can now interact with GPIO in Python…  Total time spent about 15 minutes… Can’t beat that.

All that said, I see this as being useful for overlapping, but not identical purposes to Arduino. I think they will work together nicely for me in the future.

I’m on Twitter.
