Description: Adventures in Raspberry Pi is like nothing else on the market. So far, the Raspberry Pi books out there are primarily targeted at hackers and geeks. None of them really address the user base the Pi was originally created for, young people who want to learn to code. Written by Carrie Anne Philbin, a Computing High School teacher who advises the UK government on the revised ICT Curriculum, Adventures in Raspberry Pi is the first book written specifically for the self-teaching 11- to 15-year old who wants to learn how to set up and play with the Raspberry Pi. Based on 10 fun projects that start at the most rudimentary level of how to plug the board in and turn it on, the book assumes no previous computing knowledge and explains concepts other books presume that the reader will already understand, such as what does 'flashing your SD card' really mean and how do you do it without being arrested. Through the projects, the young reader will pick up the skills to make the most of their Raspberry Pi, and more importantly, to understand the basic programming and sysadmin concepts that they can then apply to other projects and computers. Each chapter will be accompanied by a lively and informative video that will back up the lessons from the project and ensure the reader has all the support they need. Adventures in Raspberry Pi sits right at the very start of the career arc of the programmers who will soon be writing the software that will shape our world.
