Raspberry Pi 2 Owners Workshop Manual Raspberry Pi 2 Owners Workshop Manual (Reference #Rpi2)
The Raspberry Pi2 Manual is the perfect introduction to the affordable small computer. The authorship from an expert close to the project and the trademark Haynes 'how to' approach, this is the manual everyone needs to get started with their Raspberry Pi, whether at home or in the classroom.

Printed in full colour throughout, the Raspberry Pi2 Manual is aimed at those switching on their Pi for the first time, guiding them through the full process of set-up and configuration. The book then introduces various aspects of computing and programming - subjects that have been sadly absent from the school curriculum for many years - and provides a variety of recipes to demonstrate the acclaimed versatility of the Raspberry Pi's hardware and software.

Raspberry Pi for Dummies (Reference #RPiDUM01)
The book comprises over 400 pages arranged in 20 chapters. A welcome addition to this latest edition is coverage of the recently introduced Model B+. The content is arranged in six parts, plus appendices and a bonus on-line chapter. Part I – ‘Getting Started with the Raspberry Pi’ – will provide you with a useful introduction to the Pi, its operating system, downloading software and how to configure the Pi for first-time operation. This is all valuable information, particularly for new users.

Part II covers ‘Getting Started with Linux’. It provide an overview of the operating system, the desktop environment, and using the Linux shell. I suspect that for most EPE readers this will be extremely useful. Part III is titled ‘Using the Raspberry Pi for Both Work and Play’ and deals with using an office application, photo editing, and using the Pi with media. Most EPE readers are likely to find this of somewhat peripheral interest, but rather more usefully, ‘Programming the Pi’ is covered in Part IV. This deals with using Scratch, Python, Minecraft and making music. With the exception of the chapter on Python (about 30 pages) this is also likely to have a somewhat limited appeal to the average electronics enthusiast.

Raspberry Pi for Dummies


Raspberry Pi Owners' Workshop Manual Raspberry Pi Owners' Workshop Manual (Reference #HOO1)
In many respects this book has become the definitive guide to the Raspberry Pi. Published in the familiar Haynes Manual format, the 169-page manual comprises of seven sections packed with information presented in a clear, concise and well-illustrated format. The book is published in hardback and uses colour throughout. The individual sections are presented in a logical sequence, starting with a useful introduction and ending with several handy appendices.

The Raspberry Pi Manual assumes little previous knowledge, but nonetheless is designed for readers who are able to assimilate the information and put it to good use. It is essentially a practical book with plenty of hands-on content. To this end, material is presented as a series of ‘recipes’ that readers can incorporate in their own projects. So, if you have little previous knowledge and if you only intend purchasing one book on the Raspberry Pi, then this has to be the one.

Getting Started with Raspberry Pi (Reference #OR01)
The last of our four books is a relatively slim volume (164 pages) that aims to provide you with a useful and reasonably comprehensive guide to getting a Raspberry Pi up and running for the first time. The book also describes a variety of interesting practical applications, including the use of webcams and other peripherals with the Raspberry Pi. There’s even a chapter for Arduino fans that shows how the Raspberry Pi can be used together with an Arduino single-board computer.

Getting Started with Raspberry Pi provides just the right amount of detail to get you up and running, and each chapter includes a section on ‘Going Further’ with handy links to on-line sources. On the downside, some of the hand-drawn sketches in the book are a little rough, but that does not detract from the overall usefulness of the book. Finally, it’s worth noting that the book does not have an index, but perhaps the authors will do something about this in a future edition?

Getting Started with Raspberry Pi


Raspberry Pi User Guide (Third Edition) Raspberry Pi User Guide (Third Edition) (Reference #JW001)
Upton was one of the co-creators of the Raspberry Pi, and this book aims to tell you everything that you need to know in order to get up and running. The book has 13 chapters and two appendices. After a brief introduction that deals with the history of microcomputers, the book’s three main parts deal with: connecting the board; using the Pi as a media centre, productivity machine and web server; and programming and hacking.

With a mixture of hardware and software (including programming related content) there is something in this book for every reader. The book also has useful chapters on Linux system administration, troubleshooting, network configuration and partition management. For electronics buffs, the chapter on Hardware Hacking provides a reasonably comprehensive introduction to the GPIO port, UART serial bus, I2C bus and SPI bus, as well as a brief introduction to electronic components.

Programming The Raspberry Pi (Reference #MGH4)
This book explains the basics of program development for the Raspberry Pi. It will show you how to configure your Raspberry Pi and also how to navigate files and folders. The book provides a good introduction to the IDLE editor and there are numerous examples of Python code to get you started. The book also includes chapters on how to write and use your own libraries, modules and classes, as well as adding web features, developing interactive games (using Pygame) and interfacing with external hardware using the GPIO port.

For those who would like to give their programs a more polished appearance, Simon Monk’s book provides a brief introduction to the Tkinter graphical user interface (GUI). For the hardware enthusiast, the book provides an overview of several of the currently available prototyping boards with practical examples that include a clock and a small robot. So, whether you are software or hardware orientated, this book will provide you with plenty of food for thought and will quickly get you up and running with Pi and Python programming.
