This book touches on everything that a designer needs to understand to design a real-world project using the Raspberry Pi. It doesn't offer specific "cookbook" projects but instead teaches the design principles needed to implement your own projects by integrating the RPi with electronics and software to accomplish a practical task.I am a retired electronics and systems engineer have been designing systems like these since 1970, so I have a pretty good understanding of what is required for this type of project, but only a little experience with the specific tools and development required in the RPi/Linux environment. "Exploring Raspberry Pi" is ideal for me because it give me all the information I need to become comfortable in this environment.The target audience for this book is pretty broad, although I think that it would be best for the user to have at least a basic understanding of programming and electronics. Those with less experience will need to use this book as a guide to show them what topics they need to study using other books or the internet. As you go through the book, if there is anything that you don't understand, you can then search out the resources needed to learn it.This book is structured in three main sections and the topics get more and more advanced as you go through it.Part 1 is Raspberry Pi BasicsPart 2 is Interfacing, Controlling,and CommunicatingPart 3 is Advanced Interfacing and InteractionSince I am coming to the RPi from other computing environments, I found Part 1 very helpful in understanding the differences between them. It serves as an excellent orientation to RPi.
