Product Description

Review

this book is a must if you want to do more with your Raspberry Pi. (Connected Digital World, January 2014)

A great introduction to the Pi and the sort of things that can be accomplished. (MmIT, February 2014)

Books like this will guide you through a given project and provide you with learning points along the way, which is a great way to learn about Linux, Python, hardware hacking or anything. Beginner or not you ll learn lots by following the guide set out by experts such as these. (RaspberryPi.org, March 2014)


This book provides a great entry into the world of the Raspberry Pi. It has a wide range of different projects something for everyone (BCS, September 2014)

This book is really good for getting off the ground quickly. However, my biggest gripe about this book is in the hardware tutorials. The first chapter talked about using your PiFace module, which I had not read about so far in the book. Only to find an explanation of what it was in the last chapter of the book, not a good start.

Yet the main reason this gets three stars instead of four for this arrangement, is that the hardware tutorials do not give you a list of materials you need to get at the start of the chapters. Meaning I have to read through the whole chapter, write down what I need to order; and hope that I got all the right parts.

Overall good book.

Brilliant book.

I have wanted a Pi for a while now, but wasn't sure what I would actually do with it or where to start. This books helps you to get to grips with the basics and take it further. The projects are great to follow, and there's plenty of room for taking the standard code they give you and making it your own by re-writing some in a different way etc.

This was the book that was needed to go with all the Pi bits and pieces. It gives a thorough overview of all the likely things you can do when building your Pi, ideal purchase.

This is a very interesting book as it contains technical data and best of all, ideas. How many people over the years have bought computers and then wondered what to do with them. On PCs tablets and phones there are so many apps and programs that you don't need to know anything about the computer itself. The Raspberry Pi is a hands on machine (thank goodness) but it is important to know what type of thing you can do with it. This book gives you a good idea. The book was also delivered one day after order with supersaver delivery.

I wanted to start programming the RaspPi and never know how to do it. This is a good solution for anyone who starts programming in phyton.

This book gives good descriptions of the projects, which get progressively more complex as you work through. I was pleased with it.

Found it useless. First few chapters are just a waist of paper - don't see any value it the purely software projects described there. If I wanted to learn Python, I could just get a Python book and do those projects on a desktop PC. However when getting a PI, the intention is to do some hardware related projects. When skipping those and getting into hardware part, you find immediately you can do nothing without the PiFace Digital interface. You can not do those projects without it. So make it explicit and rename the book to something lie "Raspberry PI + PiFace Digital Projects".

Four of these projects have already been completed and my son is now tutoring younger children on how to use the guide - a much loved book, thank you.
