If you have anything to know about the Raspberry Pi, it’s that it’s a flexible computer that can be used as a hub for any kind of projects.
Here on , we’ve brought you some particularly useful Raspberry Pi projects over the years, but if you want to get really hardcore, you’ll need more in-depth reading. Here are ten Raspberry Pi books that are filled with project ideas and ready to get started right away.
Raspberry Pi Books for Beginners
Perfect for owners of Raspberry Pi 2 and A+ and B+ models, Raspberry Pi 2: Beginner’s Guide by James K Sargent offers 20 Pi beginner projects. Among them are tutorials that explain how to create your first media center project with XBMC, and how to use GPIO for some hardware hacking.
Raspberry Pi Books for children
You probably know that the Raspberry Pi was designed in part to provide an affordable tool to help kids get started in computer science. As Eben Upton told me:
“Just like with kids, if we thought we were forcing kids to learn how to code, we’re not going anywhere. I think what we’ve learned with the Raspberry Pi is that if you give people the tools, they’ll do it. We don’t need to promote the program, give them the ability to build a house in Minecraft, give them the ability to make a cat run over scratches. To give people the opportunity to do physical computing, it came as a real surprise to me.”
Therefore, no one should be surprised to see such a large collection of Raspberry Pi books available for kids and teens.
From Daniel Bates comes out Raspberry Pi Projects for Kids , a scratch and python book that encourages parents and children to embark on a «coding adventure… making cool and addictive games and apps on the Raspberry Pi.» Want to create your own version of Angry Birds or even an interactive map? This is the Raspberry Pi project book for you!
