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.

Raspberry Pi is an ultra-small, affordable computer, costs less than most video games, but can be used to learn to code, build robots, and create all kinds of weird and wonderful projects. The Raspberry Pi is capable of doing all the things you'd expect from a computer. However, it can be a little hard to jump headfirst into the Pi subculture, since it requires such extensive background knowledge in hardware and software development. This book aims to get you up to speed on everything and help you to understand from the very start all that you need to do to become adept with the Raspberry Pi. We're going to be covering various topics such as: What the Raspberry Pi is How to set the Raspberry Pi up An introduction to Linux An extremely thorough introduction to programming in Python on the Raspberry Pi Different projects that you can do with the Raspberry Pi And so much, much more.

This is done largely through the online iCloud service, which can be used to store and backup content from Apple devices and then make this content available to other compatible Apple devices. This is done with a unique Apple ID and can be used to view items such as photos, documents, calendars, address books and notes on Mac computers, iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches. Although this book focuses on the use of Mac computers it also covers using mobile Apple devices with iOS 8, and the iCloud service. Covers OS X Yosemite
