So Christmas has come and gone and a whole new set of toys to play with!!

So I picked up my first Raspberry Pi 4 to start learning with, nothing like getting your hands on something to really learn it.

Raspberry Pi 4 Setup

To start learning and not just have another piece of equipment lying around I also picked up the Freenove ULtimate Starter Kit.  57 projects that have step by step directions using either Python or C/C++ to manipulate the hardware that it comes with.

Freenove Ultimate Starter Kit for Raspberry Pi 4 B 3 B+ 400, 434-Page Detailed Tutorials, Python C Java Code, 223 Items, 57 Projects, Solderless Breadboard

I figure this will help me understand both Linux as well as Python that I learned in the summer of 2019.

In addition to the Hardware/Projects that I picked up, I also picked up the “RHCSA Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 – Training and Exam Preparation Guide” by Asghar Ghori

The real challenge will be to find time to learn Linux as I just accepted a new position with Palo Alto Networks and will also be working toward my PCNSE which I have been told that I should attempt to have within the first year.

First project down… only 56 to go with whatever projects that I come up with along the way.
