My personal website


My Story

My name is Patrick, I live in France and I went to a developer school a long time ago.
I have worked in different companies for 20 years now, always as a computer expert.

In 2004, I got my first job as an IT technician. During this period I improved my skills in development and created a few tools for the company (mostly using web languages like PHP).

Four years later, I moved to a new company, to work as a developer and an IT technician (70%/30%).
I learned many things on PHP, MySQL and Linux. By doing the users support, I also tried many tools and software between two stupid problems.

I worked in this company for 12 years (yes, it’s a long time!), eventually working 100% as a system administrator, and leading a team of 3 persons.
I’m now a full-time blogger thanks to your support and can dedicate all my time to my passion and improve my websites 🙂

An overview of my stuff

About RaspberryTips

The Story

In 2018, I started a Raspberry Pi hobby to apply my Linux knowledge in home projects.
In the same year, I started the RaspberryTips.com website to share my experiences.

I try to help people learn new skills on Linux and Raspberry Pi through the use of how-to guides and I also try to give them new ideas with inspirational posts.
And simultaneously, I try to improve my level in English.

Master Raspberry Pi

In 2020, I wrote a book about Raspberry Pi, with the goals to help new users getting started with their device, and improve their skills until they master almost everything on Raspberry Pi.

This book has been a best-seller in its category on Amazon, for a short period of time during the summer.
It’s now available directly on the website, where I also have a companion course for those who need more help for their first steps.


Raspberry Pi Bootcamp

The same year (2020), I also created a video course to help beginners on Raspberry Pi. It’s not easy for everyone to get started with a new technology, and I do my best to help for the first steps.

Creating this course was a challenge for me, as I don’t have a lot of experience in video, I’m pretty shy and my English level has been a stress too. But I’m happy to see that students find value in this course, that was the goal!

Other websites

RaspberryTips is not my only website, I’m also working on many other websites (in French and English).
You can check my website at PatrickFromaget.com to get further information about me and these websites.

Join the Community

Become a VIP

Your support helps me to continue producing so much content on both platforms. This way I can buy hardware myself and stay objective in my reviews. It also helps me to improve the overall quality of my content.

Also, it allows me to share with you a piece of my life of content creator. You’ll discover how it works behind the scene (it doesn’t work the first time for me either ^^), the content I’m working on before everyone else, and all sort of moment I can share with you without the formal aspect of the traditional content.

The community is also a great way to chat with other Raspberry Pi enthusiasts, ask for help, and share your current projects.

So if you want to support me and get access to all of this, you can find all the details here.

On YouTube

The tutorials on this website are not enough for you? If you want more, I also post a video once a week on the YouTube channel. It’s a different method to learn, that might work best if you prefer watching me doing the same steps as you will do on your side.

Subscribe to my emails

There are also many things that I don’t shore anywhere else than in my emails. Each week, you’ll get an update about RaspberryTips and the Raspberry Pi world in general. New tutorials, tips, news about OS and hardware releases, discount codes, etc.
