The practical Raspberry Pi takes you quickly with the hardware and software essentials of Raspberry Pi. After that, the author Brendan Horan starts off on a series of fun and practical projects, including a simple temperature sensor, media center, real-time clock and even a security monitor, all of which require minimal programming experience. Besides these projects, you'll learn all about the Raspberry Pi device, including how it can be very powerful and still small and inexpensive, and why it is so convenient as a video player, and how you can customize it for different tasks, including running different operating systems on it, Including Android and RISC OS.

 The Raspberry Pi is a inexpensive but relatively powerful little computer. Designed to make kids interested in computing and programming, but it's also a great platform for hacking devices. The projects in this book will walk you deep into the devices to show you what Raspberry Pi can really do. 

What you'll learn an overview of Raspberry Pi devices How to set up and run Pi with Linux How to use your Pi for temperature sensing and drive a simple personal LCD screen How to create a media player with Raspberry Pi How to use Pi as a serial console server How to set up the Pi as a system security monitor Other operation for your Pi device, including Gentoo, Android and RISC OS Who is this book for electronics lovers who want to experience Raspberry Pi and Linux fans who want to create useful projects with Pi, or anyone interested in learning more about computing, electronics and networks Using this inexpensive and fun little computer.

The functional Raspberry Pi looks more like a math book than something you voluntarily choose to read for fun. Luckily For you, there won't be much sports content and it will be fun. So, what is Raspberry Pi's practical theme? 
Around Simple daily projects - ones that are fun, practical, and for everyone to do - for Raspberry Pi.

I hope you have an idea for Linux; Any distribution is ok and I will cover a different number
Operating systems in this book anyway. If you feel a little uncomfortable with Linux or Raspberry Pi is the first Linux device, I encourage you to read Learn Raspberry Pi for Linux Membrey. I hope you can find out The hot end of the soldering iron is from the cold end, although you do not need to be an expert in project welding In this book. 
You should now have at least one operating system installed on your Pi; If not, don't worry
Because it will be one of your first tasks in this book.

What makes Pi something you crave? Everyone loves cheap devices and I love all devices, no
No matter how old or mysterious. Pi is a very capable small machine; Also for hardware projects, this is not bad! you may
Get more hardware side from Arduino but Pi does more than just hardware. It is not just one
A slice of the computing world:
it's the entire pi. From hardware-level projects to software-level projects, you have everything In front of you with Pi. So you have a world of opportunities. For example, you can carry a Pi with you Or set it up inside your house as a power switch that supports IP.

I've always liked breaking things down to see what's in them and how they work. plural
Various chips and other electronic junk seem to be second nature to me; I always craved a computer of any kind When I was a child and when I finally got one, I just wanted to file a case about her! Well, the Pi does not have any issue, so this is not a big deal. Even without a case to remove it is very exciting Piece of hardware. Finally, we have a cheap solution that can bridge the hardware and software gap that you will take
Take advantage of Linux. Because of the Pi price, I hope you feel a greater desire to try software and hardware.
In light of this, I want to talk about how to handle devices and am not worried about that. Don't feel bad or upset
Upset when things don't work. Devices tend not to work for the smallest reasons. You may have
He had a bad solder joint or welded something in the back. You might think it sounds pretty ridiculous, but it's often the smallest The things that hold you back.

Here are some personal experiences to clarify this point. Hong Kong life gives me access to cheap electronics I always wanted Hakko soldering iron, but in Australia it was quite expensive
Imported from Japan. I recently became a proud owner of a nice Hakko Station on that very day She brought her home, pulled her out of her box, and smiled at her majesty. I connected it to the wall and broke the printed circuit test PCB I was lying down and waited for the unit to heat up.

After some time I noticed it was not overheated. I tried everything to make it work: change the valves and double Check everything, or so I thought. It was only when my wife entered and I asked why she was turned off  Down in the small power switch on the unit to notice it was closed. Sometimes it is so simple, you miss it! Take a step back and relax: your Pi will be fine. Most of the time things don't work for me the first time; In fact, I am Cannot remember when they do. This used to get my nerve a lot and I ended up sitting there and forced myself into it
Sort them. I now know this is the wrong approach to electronics: you'll make mistakes and leave magic Smoke!


Magic smoke is an internal joke in electronics. It is assumed that there is magic smoke that lives in all Electronics components that make it work. So if you let the magic come out of the component, Will not work. In short, I detonated it. In fact, some of the larger ICs allow a small amount Puff of blue smoke if blown up. Thus, the story of magic smoke was born.

Just step back step by step, review the basics, and you'll find your problem. Now that you feel more comfortable, let's Talk about the tools you will need to work with for projects in this book. You will have Raspberry Pi already Your hands, and for many projects below,
 you'll need Form B.
