Chapter 3: Introduction to Python Programming

In the previous chapter, we learned how to remotely access the Command Prompt and the desktop of a Raspberry Pi (RPi) board. We also installed OpenCV for Python 3. Finally, we learned how to overclock the RPi and examined the various heatsinks for the RPi.

Continuing from where we left off at the end of the previous chapter, in this chapter, we will start by looking at Python 3 programming on the RPi. We will have a brief look at the Scientific Python (SciPy) ecosystem and all the libraries in it. Then, we will write basic programs for numerical computation with NumPy N-Dimensional Arrays (ndarrays). We will also learn how to visualize data with Matplotlib. Finally, we will explore the hardware aspects ...
