Need help with programming food computers


#1

We are new to food computers, and don’t really know what to do with the programming of food computers.


#2

The term “food computer” is a metaphor and a brand tagline. There’s no special programming language to learn. The MVP food computer design just uses a Raspberry Pi with scripts written in normal Python code. If you search for information about writing Python for Raspberry Pi, you can apply that to customizing the MVP code if you want.

With a bit of knowledge about Raspberry and Python, you should be able to take a look at the code and figure out what is going on.
Look at the code:
And read the technical documentation (the architecture and intent)

Hi,

I have used The particle platform for a few years now. Its arduino compatible so it’s easy to find tutorials for interfacing with sensors and such. They offer alot of great resources for beginners.

Hope this helps
