The first thing you need to do to get started with Raspberry Pi projects is to get your workspace ready. You need a dedicated work area and the right tools so that you can build the projects quickly and easily. In this chapter, we explain how to create a good workspace with the right set of tools for the projects in this book.

The project chapters assume that you have the basic workspace and tools ready to go. After you dive into a project, it can be a drag to interrupt your work to get some basic tool that you’ve overlooked. But if you have most (or all) of the basics of your workspace covered, you won’t have to stop what you’re doing to go get a hand tool or run to the hardware store.
