Welcome to JTsToolbox, where everything comes together...
We are starting a blog to cover the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. Starting with the set-up, all the way through to hardening, and dev-server setup! Keep coming back to see what kind of updates we've made. Or better yet, sign up for our mailing lists, to get updates straight to your inbox.
The Raspberry Pi is a series of small single-board computers developed in the United Kingdom by the Raspberry Pi Foundation to promote the teaching of basic computer science in schools and in developing countries. The original model became far more popular than anticipated, selling outside its target market for uses such as robotics. It does not include peripherals (such as keyboards and mice) and cases. However, some accessories have been included in several official and unofficial bundles.
The organisation behind the Raspberry Pi consists of two arms. The first two models were developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. After the Pi Model B was released, the Foundation set up Raspberry Pi Trading, with Eben Upton as CEO, to develop the third model, the B+. Raspberry Pi Trading is responsible for developing the technology while the Foundation is an educational charity to promote the teaching of basic computer science in schools and in developing countries.
According to the Raspberry Pi Foundation, more than 5 million Raspberry Pis were sold by February 2015, which made it the best-selling British computer. By November '16 they had sold 11 million units, and 12.5 million by March '17, making it the third best-selling "general purpose computer". In July of 17, sales reached nearly 15 million. In March 2018, sales reached 19 million.
That's almost $700 million in Pi sales!
Most Pis are made at a Sony factory in Pencoed, Wales; others are made in China or Japan.

Sometimes you shouldn't worry about the whitespace, it will all happen eventually!
