I bought a Raspberry Pi!

I just recently just bought a Raspberry Pi Cana Kit from Amazon.com and I am hoping to learn some new skills when it comes to basic electronics and programming. I currently know how to code a little bit of Java, Python, and VBA and I am hoping to expand on these skills. For Christmas this past year my parents gave me a full sized traffic light as a fun lighting fixture in our new home. I am hoping maybe to use my new Raspberry Pi to automate the lights, and also maybe bring an updated solution to the old tennis ball tied to a string garage application. Please stay tuned in the next month on my progress.
