I got this book from some friends who gave it to me in order to learn new things. This book is not "for Dummies". It assumes that you already have some knowledge of structured programming languages. For example, this book spends some well-written pages explaining everything you need to know about functions. If you don't know what a function is, this will clearly not be enough. However, if you do know about functions, this book will not drone on and on for an entire chapter or two on the subject like some of the foot-crunching tomes the size of an encyclopdia. In adition this book contain plenty knowledge about Raspberry programming and how it works, it contain several tips to learn in a very fast way all the complements of the theme, it also have a lot of good excersises to practice the coding.
The Raspberry PI2 programming language is such a complete and condense, this focused book it gives you exactly what you want to learn to program in Raspberry PI2. I have to say that this book is one of a kind, mi brother deliver it to me some time ago and in the beginning of the book they even explicitly tell you how they are gonna try to teach you the theme and to writing a really nice code. The book is there to teach you about one of the most important things of this programming language. This book is a must have for any developer who wants to take their personal advancement seriously. Even if you don't use want to exploit this programming language in your daily job or life, I personally believe you should still learn it and use this exact book because nobody can explain it more clearly than the creators of the language.
If you are a creative person like me you will love this book. My girlfriend gave it to me and once I read it for the first time I decided to buy a raspberry pi and try it out. The book explains everything pretty well, it will teach you how to install the raspberry pi, put on any operating system that you want and much more. This book is perfect for someone who, like me, is just starting to grasp the knowledge to program and use the raspberry pi effectively, since its useful information that you will certainly make use of.
Ok, not too much people even know what is a Raspberry, but for those who know the real advantages of it is a very useful device that you can program according your needs. That sounds great, but it is not easy; u needs to know how to develop a program using open source. This book provide all the tolls required to start programming a raspberry, as well a lot of info about raspberry capabilities and functioning to maximize our understanding leading us to a more efficient use of it(Consume little power, also his computing power is very reduced compared to an desktop pc)
I was pretty happy when I won a raspberry pi board on a contest, I had read all the cool stuff that you could do with them, but I did not know how to use it, so I went over to a friend's house and borrowed this book. I finished it in a couple of days and I learned quite a bit. At first I was a little bit lost but I quickly got the hang of it, you do need to know a bit about programming already to understand some of the terms, but even if you don't know much it's still worth a shot.
I bought a raspberry pi because I had seen some projects with them that seemed really cool, so I went and got one but I did not really know how to use it. A couple of days ago a friend of mine gave me this book as a gift so I could make use of my raspberry pi. The book has quite a bit of information for its size, and it is projected in a way that is easy to understand for everyone, so do not worry, if you are a beginner like me you will be just fine with this book.
