I have recently discovered that the photon doesn’t have enough digital pins to support my current project. So I went looking for a solution and discovered the new integration of Raspberry Pi on the Particle Cloud. I wasn’t able to find much documentation on how to do it, it seems its still a new thing. Both the Arduino and Raspberry Pi have enough pins to support my project, but my only microcontroller experience is with the Photon.
So I come to you with a question. Is it worth it to get a Pi and try and learn it and how it interfaces with the particle cloud, or do I just get an Arduino and solely use it with a wifi chip?
How is steep is the learning curve on the Pi for someone who is relatively comfortable with the Photon, and i guess in turn the Arduino.
