How to prepare the operating system to run your Raspberry Pi with your Windows machine

Recently, I had been deploying several pieces of Raspberry Pi around my house for different purposes. In order to use Raspberry Pi as a TV Box, a CCTV, a LEMP server or any other appliances, we will need to prepare an operating system in a microSD card to run our Raspberry Pi.

I always use my Windows machine to prepare the operating system for all my Raspberry Pis, since I find that it is easiest to write an operating system for Raspberry Pi on a Windows machine. This post documents how I would prepare the operating system to run my Raspberry Pi with my Windows machine.

How I make my Java programs run faster on my Raspberry Pi 3

When my first attempt to install GitBucket on my Raspberry Pi 3 highlighted to me that it was the JVM that caused GitBucket to have sluggish performance, I did not invest more time to improve the performance of the JVM that I had installed on my Raspberry Pi 3. Instead, I went on to install Go Git Service on my Raspberry Pi 3 to act as the Git server to manage the source codes of my hobby projects.

However, I just couldn’t get over my belief that Java programs would perform badly on my Raspberry Pi 3; after all Java was the first programming language that I learnt and I often use it to build software at work. Furthermore, with an Ubuntu Server 15.10.3 setup on my Raspberry Pi 3, I could use my Raspberry Pi 3 as an integration server for my Java hobby projects and be pretty sure that if my Java hobby projects run on my Raspberry Pi 3, they will most probably run on a Ubuntu Server 15.10.3 DigitalOcean droplet as well.

After spending some time researching the topic, I did manage to make my Java programs run around 10 times faster on my Raspberry Pi 3. This post documents the steps that I went through to speed up my Java programs on my Raspberry Pi 3.

Setting up Go Git Service on a Ubuntu Server 15.10.3 image on my Raspberry Pi 3

My quest in searching for a suitable self hosted Git Service didn’t stop at GitBucket. While GitBucket is easy to setup, running it on a Raspberry Pi 3 had not been ideal for me. If I had set it up on a more powerful computer / VM, I would have stuck with it.

To get a second opinion, I decided to give Go Git Service a try. This post documents my attempt in setting up Go Git Service on a Ubuntu 15.10.3 image on my Raspberry Pi 3. To make this post complete, the first eight steps are taken from previous posts.

How I built my Raspberry Pi 3 CCTV using a Motion Eye OS image for home surveillance

When I bought my Raspberry Pi 2, I also bought the first version of the Raspberry Camera Module just for the fun of it. After setting up my Raspberry Pi 2 as a TV box for my wife, that camera module became an ornament. Feeling bad about such wastage, I bought another Raspberry Pi 3 to utilise the camera module in performing home surveillance.

This post documents the steps that I took to build my Raspberry Pi 3 CCTV via a Motion Eye OS image for home surveillance.
