The Raspberry Pi is a small, cheap, single-board computer that opens a new door to computer exploration. Simple to use and program, it can be embedded in innovative projects and has been used to build Internet-connected dog treat dispensers, low-res plotters, cell phone–operated coffeemakers, and a solar-powered computer.
This course shows how to obtain, configure, and do simple tasks with a Raspberry Pi. Mark Niemann-Ross shows you how to play sounds, boot up a GUI, program simple tasks, install software, and begin to explore hardware control with GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output).
(MUSIC). Hi, I'm Mark Niemann-Ross, and welcome to up and running with Raspberry Pi. The Raspberry Pi is a credit card-sized microcomputer designed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation for experimentation and education. In this course, we'll explore how the Raspberry Pi microcomputer works and get a taste of what it can do. I'll start with an explanation of how to buy Raspberry Pi and some necessary accessories, then show you how to configure and boot it up with a Linux operating system.
I'll show you how to talk to the Raspberry Pi from your computer, and then explore how to use it with peripherals. When you're finished with this course, you'll have a great platform to learn more about embedded computers, and a working introduction into the world of do it yourself computing. So, let's get up and running with Raspberry Pi.
