This article will be all about my Raspberry Pi projects.


  • Find Raspberry Pi IP address on your local WiFi network:
$ arp-scan --interface=eth0 --localnet | grep b8:27:eb
  • Store the following in your ~/.ssh/config file:
Host rpi
    HostName 10.x.x.x
    User pi
    ProxyCommand none
    TCPKeepAlive yes
    ServerAliveInterval 5
    PubkeyAuthentication no
    PreferredAuthentications keyboard-interactive,password


$ ssh rpi

Or, better yet, use SSH keys.

  • Find out where your Raspberry Pi was made and other details about the hardware:
$ cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -E '^Hardware|^Revision|^Serial'
Hardware	: BCM2835
Revision	: a22082
Serial		: 0000000038e10351

Then, go here or here and, using the above hardware/revision codes, find out where you RPi was made.

So, in my case, I have a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B manufactured by Embest in 2016 (Q1).
