Toward the end, we extended the capabilities of the weather station we built in Chapter 9, Grove Sensors and the Raspberry Pi and added tweeting and data-saving functionalities to it. We also added speech capabilities to it to make it easier to use.

In the next chapter, we will be exploring the interesting topic of parallel computing. We will be using multiple Raspberry Pis to create a cluster of computers that perform computations faster by working in tandem towards ...
