All you need is an active Internet connection to get started with Raspberry Pi projects. Start your installation from the command line, and see how simple command lines can convert your Raspberry Pi board into an Internet of Things (IoT) device. Once you are done watching the video, find out other updates on Raspberry Pi here.
The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. It’s capable of doing everything you’d expect a desktop computer to do, from browsing the internet and playing high-definition video, to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and playing games.
What’s more, it has the ability to interact with the real world, and has been used in many digital maker projects, from music machines and parent detectors to weather stations and tweeting birdhouses with infra-red cameras. The Raspberry Foundation wants to see the Raspberry Pi being used by kids all over the world to learn to program and understand how computers work.
