Welcome to Codidact Meta!
Codidact Meta is the meta-discussion site for the Codidact community network and the Codidact software. Whether you have bug reports or feature requests, support questions or rule discussions that touch the whole network – this is the site for you.
Single Board Microcontroller/Computer Codidact Site (Arduinos, RPi, etc.)
Having some sort of website where we can talk about single board microcontrollers/computers could be very beneficial for engineers, hobbyists, students, enthusiasts, and people who wish to know more about the topic. My idea would be to create a website on Codidact where people can talk about embedded system design, similar to that of the Arduino StackExchange and Raspberry Pi StackExchange.
Creating a website such as this could inspire a lot of creativity and invention to make neat projects such as, but not limited to, usages of artificial intelligence and automated processes for people of all age groups. This could be an educational opportunity to help our global society become more technologically adept.
The following is what I believe are current technologies, toolkits, and frameworks that promote open source solutions that will be around for a long time:
- Raspberry Pi
- NVidia Jetson boards
- Other various devices
What do you all think? Is this something that would fit the scope for what Codidact has in mind? Does anyone see any potential harm in having a website like this? We can discuss what the user would be allowed to ask because I do see a lot of potential redundancy where people would have the same projects. I also think there would need to be a way to provide protection for the user's work.
Edit 1: After feedback from @manassehkatz, it would be wise to tone down the amount of topics. Henceforth, I am now proposing a website purely for "single board microcontrollers/computer".
This focus should be dedicated towards automation projects.

This does sound like an interesting idea. But it seems that the common theme may be much more of a "tiny computer system …
