RaspberryPi Tutorials

RaspberryPi’s are phenomenal computers for learning programing and also home automation tasks. Because they are so cheap and low powered they can be used and abused to do almost anything. I personally learned programing in high school by using RaspberryPi’s to create and control various robotics projects.

Synology NAS Tutorials

Synology builds some of the best consumer / enterprise NAS units from a usability standpoint. DSM, Synology’s web interface, provides the most intuitive interface of any NAS/SAN environment. Synology provides users with a simple solution to data management which is key in this day and age.
