Hi everyone. Thanks for taking the time to read my post. I like messing around with computers or electronics and especially getting them attached to toys. So, I am looking for a platform to program with python. Ideally I would love to find an online emulator that allows me to practice my code on a pi device? If anyone could help me out it would be greatly appreciated.

Well, a quick Google search turns up options like this:

Or you could just buy a Raspberry Pi for $35 and work on the real thing:

It doesn't look like that emulator would simulate the unique features of Pi hardware, like the GIPO's.

Try $5! Of course, it's nearly impossible to actually find one.

Ross, Exactly what are you looking for in a "platform"? Unless you are looking for something like the GIPO's, I don't think an emulator (if such a thing exists) is necessary.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
