Raspberry Pi Projects For Dummies -E-book


E-Book description:

Raspberry Pi Projects For Dummies is designed for people who are looking for something exciting to do with the Raspberry Pi. This book contains projects to amaze and inspire you! It takes you into a world of switches, lights, motors, home automation, and computer vision. It not only covers the theory behind what you’re doing, but also gives you examples of putting that theory into practice, so you can learn to work on your own projects and not just blindly follow a list of instructions. Sure, we could just give you a list of steps to follow. But we believe that you should try to understand what you’re doing and why you’re doing it, and that’s what this book is all about. With this book as a resource, we encourage you to put your own stamp on projects, which is why many projects in this book aren’t just cut-and-dried lists of things to do, but suggestions about how you can customize the projects and make them your own.
