The Raspberry Pi is a remarkable little computer. Since its launch in 2012, it has taken the world by storm, selling over 25 million units and being used in places most of us can only dream of visiting. There’s something for everyone in this book. From beginner to more experienced Pi users. We’ve got projects, code, guides and tutorials that will help you unlock the power of the Pi.
The amazing little Raspberry Pi
The Pi has been on board the International Space Station, there’s a Pi Zero currently orbiting Earth with a camera attached as part of a satellite, there’s one in Antarctica, several in the jungles of Borneo, and one sent into the briny depths of an abyss. It’s not all about extreme uses in science and engineering, though. You’ll find that the Raspberry Pi is a superb, and cheap, desktop computer, retro gaming system, media centre, and even a TV set-top box.
Getting Started with the Raspberry Pi
All these projects use the Pi and code. With code, you can create amazing things and have your Pi do what you want it to do. We’ve got a section on coding with Python that will take you from the core foundations through to advanced concepts and code. There’s also a section on learning Linux, the operating system of the Raspberry Pi. By learning how Linux works, you’ll be able to take command of the Pi and expand your project ideas.
