Raspberry Pi Tips, Tricks & Fixes Vol 35
Building Pi Foundations
Starting off is often the trickiest part of any technical project. With that in mind, we will help you get up and running in no time. Our step-bystep tutorials and tips will guide you through the process of which model Raspberry Pi’s are available, how they work, how you’d get an operating system on one, and how you can turn it into a useable computer and the base for all your future projects.
Raspbian is the Raspberry Pi’s recommended operating system (although you can install several others). It comes complete with a productivity suite, powerful photo editor, and much more. If you need help getting to grips with what Raspbian has to off er, then this book is perfect for you. We take a look at the main apps available, and other aspects such as connecting to the Pi remotely, transferring fi les with FTP, and how to install and remove more great programs.
Raspbian is a Linux-based operating system, which means it works diff erently to that of Windows and Mac systems. This book will help you discover how Linux and Raspbian work, unlocking some great tips and necessary commands, while showing you how to get what you want from the system. By mastering Linux, you will be able to unleash the full power of the Raspberry Pi.
Python is one of the most popular programming languages in the world, and it comes pre-installed with Raspbian; all you need to do is launch the app and learn how to program. The Python section in this book will give you a head start in learning this amazing language. You will learn how to write code, execute it, work with variables, create functions, conditions and loops, and even interact with the user.
C More Pi
If you want to really stretch your Pi programming skills, then learning C++ will do the job. We’ve got some great tutorials alongside the raw C++ code you will need to get to grips with one of the most powerful programming languages in the world. With it, you can take your Pi projects to even greater heights.
