Programming projects (or extended programming examples)
There is no single path to learning any programming language, Sure there are some basic concepts you need to get out of the way first, but after that you learn the bits that are relevant to the current problem.

I have been working on a series of Raspberry Pi projects, some trivial and some, less so. Recently at the Raspberry Pi non-event, I attempted to remote desktop into my Raspberry Pi, and had some success doing so, but after a request to show of the Pi Store, my little dalliance was over, and I felt like a complete idiot not being able to view the internet from the Pi.
The aim of this small article, is to offer a way of installing Adobe Reader in the 64 bit version of Debian Squeeze. You can justifiably ask, “why would you want to do that?” After all, the native evince works just fine. Well, on this occasion, I downloaded a pdf file from a bank, which has a built in capability to enable a form to be filled in, printed off and sent back. Unfortunately, evince cannot do that, so Adobe Reader was the only game in town.
