The Raspberry Pi is an amazing device. Small, cheap and incredibly versatile, it’s a fantastic bit of kit for playing around and learning how to code. It has a deceptively simple design that’s not much bigger than a credit card, yet it can be used for a range of tasks as diverse as emulating classic computer games and hosting your own website. There are so many fun projects you can create with your Raspberry Pi that it might seem hard to know where to begin, especially if you’re new to Raspberry Pi, coding and Linux, the free open source operating system that powers the Raspberry Pi.
What you hold in your hands is a guide to not only getting started with the Raspberry Pi, but also an introduction to coding and an inspiration to help you turn your Raspberry Pi into almost anything you can think of. One of the most important aspects of the Raspberry Pi is its ability to be a fantastic teaching tool for getting students – both young and old – into programming.
We’ll introduce you to some of the most popular coding languages that can be used on the Raspberry Pi, and once you’re confident with them, the sky’s the limit with what you’ll be able to achieve with the tiny computer. Reading about languages and how they work is all well and good, but the best way to learn is by doing something practical, and thankfully we’ve got that covered with a range of fun and exciting projects that will help you transform your Raspberry Pi, while also teaching you some important computing and programming principles.
Whether you’re new to Linux and programming, or a seasoned pro who wants ideas for what to do next with the Raspberry Pi, you’re in good hands. If you’re a student studying for a computing or programming course, this is an excellent resource to help you revise, while if you’ve just picked up a Pi and want to have a play around, allow us to inspire you to create your own projects for the amazing little computer.
