A miniature computer and its great power!

A real computer sized credit card? Yes, it's possible! Raspberry Pi is a small computer with huge potential, in addition really cheap. Few people know that it was designed with the idea of learning programming for children. Pi currently works as a web server, movie player or automation controller. Do you have an idea for your own project and are looking for interesting example projects? You've come to the perfect book dedicated to this amazing platform!

During the reading you will get to know the Pi construction, prepare it for work and the first launch. This is just an introduction to an amazing adventure! In the following chapters you will build a LED blinker, an MP3 player, a camera driver and a GPS system. In addition, with a small amount of work, you will be able to develop a home automation system, a meteorological station and a home security system. This book is a rich source of practical projects that will give you hours of great fun!

Reach for this book and:

  • learn about the construction and start the Raspberry Pi platform
  • build a home automation system
  • develop your own meteorological station
  • prepare your own real-time server (RTC)
  • Have fun for long hours!
