Raspberry Pi

Overview

The Raspberry Pi is a low cost computer that runs Linux from an SD card. It can be plugged into a computer monitor or TV using a standard keyboard and mouse. It enables people of all ages to do all kinds of wonderful things. It’s can do everything you’d expect a desktop computer to do, from browsing the internet and playing high-definition video, to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and playing games. Raspberry Pi  has the ability to interact with the outside world, and has been  used in a wide array of projects, from music machines and parent detectors to weather stations and tweeting birdhouses with infra-red cameras.

In this series, we will first get you up and running with Raspberry Pi. Then, we’ll learn how to work with general purpose I/O or GPIO on a Raspberry Pi. Finally, we will set up a web server on Raspberry Pi and display live data acquired from sensors connected to GPIO.
