How to Get Your HS420361K-32 4 Digit 7 Segment Display Working with an Arduino


Typically when I get new electronics components to play with, I just google the part number and lookup tutorials on how to get it working. This has been a pretty successful strategy more often than not. However, this wasn't the case when I needed to get the HS420361K-32 4 digit 7 segment display to work.

So You Bought Yourself a Raspberry Pi 3, Now What!


My second post when I started this blog was about my choice of a prototyping board to explore, and I started out with an Arduino. Back then, one of my arguments for choosing the Arduino over the Raspberry Pi was cost. While the cost factor hasn't changed all that much, I managed to get myself gifted a Raspberry Pi 3 (and that's how you bypass the cost factor lol).

So for the past couple of years I have been mildly exploring the Raspberry Pi 3 (emphasis on mildly), and what I'd like to go through is: "WHAT THE HELL DO YOU DO ONCE YOU GET A RASPBERRY PI?"
