Why You Need This Book

After you shake the Raspberry Pi out of the little electrostatic bag it comes in, what next?

This book answers that question. It enables you to get your Raspberry Pi up and running and also introduces you to some of the great things you can do with it, through satisfying practical projects. With this book as your companion, you can build websites, write games, and create your own electronic gadgets, all without any prior knowledge.

The Raspberry Pi is most likely a bit different compared to other computers you’ve used, so this book also helps you to do some of the things on your Pi that you expect of every computer, such as playing music and editing documents.

You can learn a lot of this through trial and error, of course, but that can be a frustrating way to spend your time. Using this book as a reference, you can more quickly start using your Raspberry Pi, whatever you plan to do with it.
