I’ve been a big fan of Simon Monk for quite a while. Whether it’s his Arduino evil genius books, or his electronics “courses”, It’s always educational and fun to read. This time, Simon takes us on a updated journey through the Raspberry Pi. From explanation of the hardware and software, through setup, to programming in Python, creating user interfaces, and reading and controlling electronics through the I/O pins, this book covers it all with an easy to understand helpful tone. Perfect for beginners, but not boring for those of us with prior experience.
As usual, all the code mentioned in the book is available for download at his website, and new projects continue to be posted on his blog.
