your european partner for raspberry pi & machine learning

We are a Raspberry Pi approved reseller, and one of only two Pi Zero W distributors in Germany. With our strong technical background we are a solid choice as your partner for anything Raspberry Pi related in Germany, Europe and beyond.

Starting in 2020 we have also become one of Google's select worldwide partners for distribution of their Coral.AI lineup. We believe artificial intelligence / machine learning is the way forward in the future.

Get in touch with us today, to see how your business can benefit from single board computing and embedded machine learning - go beyond and way ahead of your competition.

In our blog you can expect blog posts about technology and business topics, of course about the Raspberry Pi, but also a wide variety of topics related to Industrie 4.0, IoT, and machine learning - for example about the popular MQTT protocol, Python and Linux embedded development, and much more. Blog entries are not scheduled and not in particular order - the topics are an eclectic mix of what comes up in real life of a company engaged in machine learning & Raspberry Pi embedded adventures.

My (Max') attitude is to post about topics which take up significant time for research and experimentation, and which are not well-documented elsewhere. And of course, also some rather emotional topics about how to do business properly.

If you resonate with what I write, my advice is for hire in the form of consulting. I love to rant about bad user interface and business design, and brainstorm workable solutions with you. Possibly the best money you will ever spend.
