    Thanks from a 6 year old

    I just wanted to say a huge thanks to the dev's who put in so much time and effort into this platform.

    My 6 year old has been learning 'scratch' programming, so I decided yesterday to give him something harder and start working with some hardware.

    The two of us sat down with a pi zero, GPIO dac, cheap AMP board, relays and some old speakers and he wired them all up - we even installed them into a metal case to go in his room. He loaded up PiCorePlayer onto the SD card and booted it all up. In the space of a couple of hours we had a fully functioning squeezebox setup for his room. I even gave him a spare joggler to control it all. He is a very very proud/excited 6 year old.

    The fact this community has the platform to a level which is quite literally childs play is remarkable, especially given that included a hardware build. You guys are awesome.

    Oh make no mistake, I had to explain what we were doing and why, but he did the assembly.

    Actually, If I get some time I'll do a write up on the build for people to follow if needed.

    Sure - nobody can expect a 6 year old to read up on him/her self, and on this technical level ... guidance is accepted.

    Thumbs up on writing about the build. I look forward to read about it.
