I’ve just received sad news. After several years of operating in the commercial arena of the Raspberry Pi, Ryanteck Ltd is closing down. Ryan Walmsley, proprietor, just announced it via email. Ryan has been a leader of the Pi community, especially in the early days when he was a young programmer showing what the Pi could really do and developing one of the first motor controller boards that plugged directly into the GPIO pins. In recent times, he ran several Kickstarters culminating in the excellent RTk.GPIO board which gave you access to many more GPIO pins as well as bringing physical computing to PCs and Macs. Over the next few months, Ryan will be running a closing down sale so head over to his web store to pick up a bargain. He’s expecting to cease trading at the end of October.
