The Raspberry Pi is an inexpensive 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 adults) to learn how to program. Over five million Raspberry Pis have been sold worldwide, so far! Raspberry Pi 3 in easy steps starts with the basic components you’ll need, setting up the system and logging into the console. Then, in easy steps, it introduces you to the Raspbian operating system that is optimized for the Raspberry Pi. You'll learn how to customize the look and feel of your system, how to navigate the file system, and how to use the powerful system ‘shell’ to make things happen for you. The new GPIO interface is fully described, and the new NOOBS installer is also described for setup. Raspberry Pi 3 in easy steps enables complete beginners to create their very own computer programs with the Scratch visual programming environment. It also instructs programming in the high-level (human-readable) Python programming language, which is processed by the Python ‘interpreter’ to produce results fast. Examples demonstrate how to use the included Python ‘pygame’ module, to make your own games, and how to use the included 'Tkinter’ module to create graphical windowed apps. Raspberry Pi 3 in easy steps also illustrates how to control electrical input and output on the Raspberry Pi header from Python scripts, including lighting a lamp, adding more buttons and controlling projects. With the knowledge gained from this book the reader can confidently advance to any future electronic Raspberry Pi project or other explore other programming environments. Covers the latest versions of Python.

Over 60 recipes that harness the power of the Raspberry Pi together with Python programming and create enthralling and captivating projects About This Book Install your first operating system, share files over the network, and run programs remotely Construct robots and interface with your own circuits and purpose built add-ons, as well as adapt off-the-shelf household devices using this pragmatic guide Packed with clear, step-by-step recipes to walk you through the capabilities of Raspberry Pi Who This Book Is For Readers are expected to be familiar with programming concepts and Python (where possible Python 3 is used), although beginners should manage with the help of a good Python reference book and background reading. No prior knowledge of the Raspberry Pi or electronics is required; however, for the hardware sections you will need some basic electronic components/household tools to build some of the projects. What You Will Learn Get the Raspberry Pi set up and running for the first time Remotely connect to the Raspberry Pi and use your PC/laptop instead of a separate screen/keyboard Get to grips with text, files and creating quick menus using Python Develop desktop applications; handle images and process files with ease Make use of graphics and user control to develop your own exciting games Use the Raspberry Pi's powerful GPU to create 3D worlds Take control of the real world and interface with physical hardware, combining hardware and software for your own needs Measure and control processes, respond to real events and monitor through the Internet Learn about the Raspberry Pi hardware inputs/outputs, starting with the basics and beyond Expand the capabilities of the Raspberry Pi with hardware expansion / add-on modules (use analogue inputs, drive servos and motors, and use SPI/I2C) Create your own Pi-Rover or Pi-Hexpod driven by the Raspberry Pi Make use of existing hardware by modifying and interfacing with it using the Raspberry Pi In Detail Raspberry Pi cookbook for Python Programmers is a practical guide for getting the most out of this little computer. This book begins by guiding you through setting up the Raspberry Pi, performing tasks using Python 3 and introduces the first steps to interface with electronics. As you work through each chapter you will build up your skills and knowledge and apply them as you progress throughout the book, delving further and further into the unique abilities and features of the Raspberry Pi. Later, you will learn how to automate tasks by accessing files, build applications using the popular Tkinter library and create games by controlling graphics on screen. You will harness the power of the built-in graphics processor by using Pi3D to generate your own high quality 3D graphics and environments.

Unix in easy steps demonstrates how to get the most from any Unix-based operating system using the built-in BASH shell interpreter - the "Bourne Again SHell" (BASH). This is the default shell for Linux distributions (such as Ubuntu), Mac OS X, Solaris, and for the Raspbian operating system on Raspberry Pi devices. This book will show you how to use the BASH command-line interface and how to employ BASH's powerful programming abilities. Complete examples illustrate each aspect with colourised source code and full-colour screenshots depict the actual output. Unix in easy steps begins by demonstrating BASH commands for system navigation and file manipulation so you will quickly become familiar with the command-line interface. It explains all the BASH basics before moving on to describe advanced features such as: command historycommand-line editingenvironment customisation. This book then introduces BASH programming with examples of flow control, command switches, input/output, job control, and program debugging - allowing you to create your own executable programs by copying the book's examples. Unix in easy steps has an easy-to-follow style that will appeal to: users who are completely new to Unix-based operating systemscasual users who wish to expand their knowledge of their computer system.those who would like to learn programming skills by writing useful shell scriptsthe student who is studying programming at school or collegethose seeking a career in computing and need a fundamental understanding of the BASH interpreter on Unix-based operating systems.
