About the Book
Just Enough Raspberry Pi...
... to be dangerous.
If you've heard about the Raspberry Pi you may know that it provides a fantastic method to learn about using a computer and to develop some skills that go beyond the basics.
What sort of things will we learn?
- What sort of versions of the Raspberry Pi are there?
- What hardware do I need to get it up and going?
- What sort of operating systems are there and how do we install them?
- How do I do [Insert any number of cool things]?
Whatever the reason, hopefully you can find the answer here.
Is this book for you?
It's not written for experts. It's put together as a guide to get you started if you're unsure about how to make the first move with a Raspberry Pi.
Why is Just Enough Raspberry Pi being written?
Because in the process of learning things, it's a great way to remember them if you write them down :-).
Writing about how to do cool stuff with computers means that we're accumulating ways to help ourselves out when the going gets tricky. Making a book out of the information is a no-brainer since that way more people benefit from the process.
The awesome that is Leanpub.
The book has some information in it, but there's still a bit more to come. Publishing using Leanpub will allow readers to get easy notification of when updates and improvements are made.
So we hope you get something out of the book, please excuse the sometimes light-hearted conversational manner in which we approach the topic and enjoy the Raspberry Pi!
About the Author
I have a passion for knowledge and I realise that part of the responsibility of gathering knowledge is being able to advance the state of the human condition in some way.
My aims using the Raspberry Pi, Linux and in writing this book were to play with software and hardware, achieve a personal goal and try something new for fun.
The way I explain things is focussed on trying to impart that understanding in a simple but functional way.
