Great book but not all example code is on the publishers website
on 6 October 2014
This book is an excellent reference for RPI. Like other books in the series it doesn't go into much detail in each recipe but it is more than enough to get you started and build upon. I'm a novice when it comes to coding and I've been able to follow recipes and apply them to my own projects such as coding a program to run automatically on start up. The only complaint I have about the book is that the publisher has not made all the code available online; in the book it says example code is available on the publishers website but only a limited selection is available. This made it difficult to use some of the examples and took some time to type them from the book; because of this I'm only giving the book 3 starts otherwise I would have given it 5.
Also just want to mention there was that there was a delivery problem with Royal Mail who lost the original order and said it had been delivered. I wish Amazon would stop using Royal Mail; my last online purchase was delivered by DPD who text messaged a one hour timeslot and also provided online tracking of the delivery van. Royal Mail provided tracking which said my item was delivered at 10:20 am but when I called them at 16:00 they admitted they sometimes scan the items in the depot as delivered to save time on the rounds! Amazon stop using Royal Mail! I really like the book by the way.
