Setup and Basics
Starting off is often the hardest part of any technical project, so with that in mind, we help you get up and running in no time. Our step-by-step tutorials guide you through the process of which models of Raspberry Pi are available, how they work, how you get an operating system on one and how you can turn it into a useable computer and the base for all your future projects.
We dive into the FUZE Project, one of the most exciting examples of what can be done with a Raspberry Pi, and see what’s on offer. With the FUZE you use the Raspberry Pi as normal but it incorporates some interesting extras you won’t find in a standard Pi setup. Our detailed guides walk you through the FUZE and its unique version of the BASIC programming language; we even include some coding examples to sink your teeth into.
The return of the ‘80s bedroom coder is one of the best examples of how the Raspberry Pi has changed the world of technology. Harking back to a time when limited resources meant more imaginative programming, the Raspberry Pi embraces its technological heritage and provides a stable and easy to learn platform on which to begin coding.
The Raspberry Pi has been used for some really amazing projects by its userbase. Media servers, robots, 3D laser controllers, retro arcade machines, the list goes on. It’s even been sent to the edge of the atmosphere in a balloon and, quite remarkably, on board the International Space Station with British Astronaut Tim Peake. The Raspberry Pi really is out of this world technology. Whilst we can’t send you into space (yet) we have got some cosmic projects for you to try out.
