IDG Contributor Network: How to build a Raspberry Pi-based desktop PC

Premier Farnell, a distributor of Raspberry Pi, has created a kit that turns Raspberry Pi into a full-fledged desktop PC, running Linux.What value does the Pi Desktop box bring to Raspberry Pi? Canrsquo;t you just use the Pi and use it as a desktop? Not really.

First of all, there are no start, reboot or reset buttons on the device. Which means you canrsquo;t turn the PC off via a button.“The built-in power switch makes the Pi Desktop easy to operate.

An intelligent and safe power controller means that users do not have to remove the power adapter from the Pi board; they simply turn the power on or off like a desktop or laptop,” said Premier Farnell in a press release.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Java vs. Google’s Go: An epic battle for developer mind share

Go vs. Java isn’t a well-matched battle between equals. One is a monstrous heavyweight that has dominated the industry for years.

The other is a scrappy, lightweight newcomer that shows plenty of youth and promise but has only a few punches.Java and Go also tackle different niches. One is aimed squarely at server-side web apps, an area where the other was once a major player.

The other has outgrown life in the racks and is now a popular choice for devices.[ Also on InfoWorld: Tap the power of Google's Go language. | The best Go language IDEs and editors. | The big 4 Java IDEs reviewed: See how Eclipse, NetBeans, JDeveloper, and IntelliJ IDEA stack up. | Keep up with hot topics in programming with InfoWorld's App Dev Report newsletter. ]But not everyone has moved away from Java on the server side of web applications, territory Go is attacking, eating away at Java’s base.

They are both straightforward and imperative with enough structural similarities that it’s not hard to convert code between the two. (The TardisGo project, for instance, is one tool that will turn Go into Java, C#, or JavaScript.)To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
