The fully updated guide to the revolutionary Raspberry Pi ®

Raspberry Pi User Guide, Third Edition is a fully updated and comprehensive introduction to the Raspberry Pi and its wide array of hardware configurations, programming languages and educational applications. Written by Raspberry Pi co-creator Eben Upton and respected tech author Gareth Halfacree, this popular best seller is the perfect resource for new Pi users and curious hackers alike who want to explore the seemingly endless possibilities of this revolutionary computer. With nearly three million units already sold, there has never been a better time to get up and running with the Raspberry Pi. This completely updated third edition covers how to:

  • Utilise the features of the new Model B+ board, the latest build of the Raspberry Pi
  • Connect the Raspberry Pi to other devices–keyboard, mouse, monitor
  • Install the necessary software and configure the Raspberry Pi
  • Set up the Raspberry Pi as a simple productivity machine and multimedia centre
  • Write basic programs in Scratch and Python
  • Extend the Pi’s capabilities with add-on boards such as the Gertboard

    Raspberry Pi User Guide, Third Edition covers the latest updates, models and innovative applications of the miniature marvel and has earned the distinction of the Unofficial Official Guide to the Raspberry Pi.
