I plan to use Raspberry Pi in a solution made for a customer, but when we discussed boot time I had to grab stop watch to see how long does it take to boot. It takes 42.68 seconds…Way too much.
So the plan is to lower that time. Looks like Arch Linux might be a solution. Since I use mostly Debian, I have to check the distribution to see how it works. So I will be using it first in virtual environment and when I’m happy with hacks to make it boot faster, the distribution for Raspberry Pi will be used.
Just after the reflow oven post, people from Make magazine posted a nice DIY reflow oven post. And they talk about Arduino – the same thing we will be using. And if you are not into doing it on your own – you can also buy it.
As mentioned I was on business trip, the conference.. IoT Vienna – part of the IoT day. I volunteered to help them in organisation but failed miserably. Managed to sit on the wrong means of transport (bus instead of u-bahn) and came an hour and half too late 🙁
So I wasn’t much of a help. Sorry, guys and girls.
Anyway – the conference was good. All the talks were recorded and here they are.
