About the Book
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?
- A bit about the Raspberry Pi
- A bit about the software language Python
- A bit about Linux and measuring 'stuff'
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.
If you like you can get straight to the code here on GitHub.
Why has the book been written?
Because writing things down is a great way to remember them.
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.
So I hope you get something out of the book, please excuse the sometimes light-hearted conversational manner in which I 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 in writing these books are to play with software, achieve personal goals and try something new for fun. It also helps that I think Open Source, technology, the visual representation of data and information rock in serious ways.
The books that I write are a mechanism to support my own learning, so the way I explain things is focused on trying to impart understanding in a simple but functional way.
I'm totally in awe of the Open Source community that has made this type of work possible. If you feel that you would like to support continued development of this content, feel free to donate when you download.
