I was born in and am living in Singapore,
an island city-state with beautiful skylines.
I am currently employed as a Presales Specialist @ SAP
I am also a Management of Technology student @ NUS
I build things with tools from the computing world:
I write on my blog:
Many useful applications are written in PHP backed by MariaDB/MySQL for data persistency.
When you wondering what you can use a Raspberry Pi for, one way is to turn it into a LEMP server for hosting PHP applications.
With this in mind, let us look at how we can setup a Raspberry Pi LEMP server with Raspbian Buster Lite for running PHP applications.
As I had mentioned in why my computer restarted itself when I play League of Legends, excess heat can cause a computer to behave abnormally.
So how will your Raspberry Pi 4 Model B deal with rising heat? In case there is a spike in operating temperature, Raspberry Pi 4 will slow your CPU down significantly. When that happens, you will not be able to enjoy 4K videos on your Raspberry Pi 4 anymore.
After I did a review on the Raspberry Pi 4, I had been contemplating whether to get a cooler fan for my Raspberry Pi 4. In the midst of delayed gratification, Seeed Studio asked if I am willing to do a review on their Ice Tower Cooler. Since I wanted a cooling fan for my Pi 4, I agreed to have a look at the Ice Tower Cooler.
Given that, this post contains some points for your reference if you are pondering whether to get the ICE Tower CPU Cooling Fan for to cool your Raspberry Pi 4.
When you deploy multiple Raspberry Pis in your house, it is a good practice to give each of them a unique hostname. Since the default hostname for Raspbian is raspberrypi, it will be easier to look for the IP address of a new Raspbian installation in this situation.
Given that, let us look at how you can change the hostname of your Raspberry Pi in Raspbian via the Raspberry Pi Software Configuration Tool (
As I had mentioned in how to monetise a programmer's website effectively, affiliate marketing can be an effective way for your website to earn money.
Since affiliate marketing programs revolves around links, we can build a catalogue of items that we wish to recommend to visitors to our websites.
If you have already built that catalogue of product recommendations and an API endpoint, you can build a sticky component in your sidebar and rotates recommended items from there.
Since I have been hearing good feedback about React, I implemented such a feature on my website with React.
In case you are looking to do the same, this is how you can add a React component that rotates recommended items on your website.
Although your Raspberry Pi is unable to read analog input out of the box, you can get a MCP3008 I/P ADC chip to help your Raspberry Pi do so.
When you connect a MCP3008 I/P chip to your Raspberry Pi, you can read up to 8 analog inputs with SPI.
Given these points, this post will show you how you can use the MCP3008 I/P chip to help your Raspberry Pi read digital data from analog sensors.
That's all for now...
