Product Description

About the book
The Raspberry Pi is a cheap, basic, programmable credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It can be used for many of the things that your PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and playing games, but its real purpose is to inspire children (and grown-ups) to learn how to program.
The Raspberry Pi comes in two models:
Model A has RAM, one USB port and no Ethernet (network connection)
Model B has 256Mb RAM, two USB ports and an Ethernet port
Raspberry Pi in easy steps starts with the basic components you’ll need, the desktop and how to command the system. Then in easy steps, it shows how to use Python to create games, develop windowed apps using Tkinter, add animations using Scratch, control electrical input and output, and much more.
Use Raspberry Pi in easy steps to have fun going back to basics and creating your own applications.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Starter Book 12 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I originally borrowed this book from my local library and then bought Eben's User Guide! But this book had so much extra in it that I ended up buying this too. Only complaint is that it doesn't list the HDMI codes - but these are available on the web anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raspberry Pi book 7 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is just great! It spells all the stages of setting up, what not to do and what you MUST do in very clear steps. I think it should be incorporated in every school library

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice book 22 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very nice book for a beginner, wouldn't really recommend for an advanced person or someone that's been using a raspberry pi for a few months
