This is a short video going over a project I just finished to prove that a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B (new as of February 2015) can run a light duty website and low volume email server. I have installed Apache2 for the web server, which takes like 2 minutes for the basic install, and Postfix and Dovecot for the email server. The mail server definitely takes longer to set up but with the detailed, step by step instructions available at the link below it is really easy to do.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
