Teach Yourself VISUALLY Raspberry Pi -E-book


E-Book description:

All books are a collaboration, and this one is no exception. I’d like to thank Aaron Black for giving the green light to this project, Paul Hallet for checking code and facts, and Sarah Hellert for making the transition from copy to print as smooth as possible. Extra special thanks are due to Annette Saunders for cake.
