If you want to learn more about Raspberry Pi, this is the book for you! Boasting more than just the basics, this book will walk you through everything from setting up the Pi to building a smart TV.

McCarhty begins by introducing the reader to OpenCV, which is the computer vision library used for the projects he describes throughout the book. He then outlines in detail how to program video cameras, how to create a GPS designated photo camera, and even link your Raspberry Pi to your Google Home to bring automation to your smart house.

In this book you’ll work through a series of projects that outline basic Raspberry Pi programming.

The projects in this book include:

  • How to create a face detection app
  • Creating a print server that is network accessible
  • How to create a weather app
  • Building your own Smart TV
  • More!
Perhaps just as important as the projects themselves, McCarthy’s book guides the reader on what he or she should already know before starting any of the projects. His “prerequisites” section explains how a basic understanding of Raspberry Pi is important to executing his projects, and provides resources for the Raspberry Pi programmer-to-be.

But this book doesn’t just stop with prerequisites! It also includes a “Chapter 0” for very beginners. This chapter takes a step-by-step approach to setting up the Raspberry Pi, connecting devices, and more.

Once you set up your Raspberry Pi you’ll be off and running! This book explores achievable, functional projects that you can create with your Raspberry Pi, and introduces you to the endless possibilities of Raspberry Pi programming.

Whether you’re new to the world of Raspberry Pi or simply looking for some new projects to hone your programming skills, this book delivers something useful for any reader.

More about Raspberry Pi 3:

The Raspberry Pi 3 is a credit-card sized computer that was designed to teach basic computer programing to children. It’s an affordable option for schools and families, costing around €20-€40 ($25-$35) per unit. This capable computer allows kids to explore the fundamentals of coding in classrooms and at home! The Raspberry Pi 3 also has quite a bit of functionality outside of the classroom. It can be used to improve home automation, as a low-cost energy monitoring system, and more. Programmers are constantly finding more uses for the Raspberry Pi, so now is a great time to learn how to work with that thing!

This is the perfect book to enhance your knowledge and train your skills on Python and Node.js programming by developing fun projects. Grab your copy now!
