Raspberry Pi The Beginners Guide Vol 29
A massive 192-page collection of tips, guides and tutorials for anyone waning to start experimenting with Raspberry Pi!
With a Raspberry Pi you can learn to code, build your own web server, create interesting and amazing projects and even build a robot. This book will help you through the entire Raspberry Pi experience, from buying your first RPi to getting it up and running and beyond.
You can learn how to start coding, using FUZE BASIC, Scratch and Python and how to use the breadboard for electronics projects. If you’re stuck for project ideas, we’ll guide you through some examples for you to try out and ultimately improve.
If you want to know everything about your Pi, then Raspberry Pi – The Beginners’ Guide is the perfect book for you. All that’s needed is a little work and ample imagination.
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.
