In this chapter, we learned how to use a webcam and the Pi camera. We also learned how to use utilities such as fswebcam, avconv, raspistill, raspivid, mencoder, and omxplayer. We covered how to use crontab. We used the Python picamera module to programmatically work with the Pi camera board. Finally, we compared the Pi camera and the webcam. We will be reusing all the code examples and concepts for some real-life projects soon.
In the next chapter, we will learn about programming Pi GPIO with PiGlow, which is a third-party add-on board for the Pi.
