Introduction to Raspberry Pi

Introduction: 





It’s easy to understand why people were skeptical of the Raspberry Pi when it was first                                                                                announced.
            A credit card-sized computer for $35 (3k)  seemed like a pipe dream. Which is why, when it started shipping, the Raspberry Pi created a frenzy of excitement.



What Can You Do With It?

                One of the great things about the Raspberry Pi is that there’s no single way to use it. Whether you just want to watch videos and surf the web, or you want to hack, learn, and make with the board, the Raspberry Pi is a flexible platform for fun, utility, and experimentation.




  • General purpose computing: 


It’s important to remember that the Raspberry Pi is a computer and you
can, in fact, use it as one you can choose to have it boot into a graphical desktop environment with
a web browser, which is a lot of what we use computers for these days.
Going beyond the web, you can install a wide variety of free softwares.....


  • Learning to program:


Since the Raspberry Pi is meant as an educational tool to encourage kids
to experiment with computers, it comes preloaded with interpreters and
compilers for many different programming languages. For the beginner,
there’s Scratch, a graphical programming language from MIT. If you’re eager to jump into writing code, the Python programming language is a great way to get started And you’re not limited to only Scratch and
Python. You can write programs for your Raspberry Pi in many different  programming languages like C, Ruby, Java, and Perl.


  • Project platform: 


The Raspberry Pi differentiates itself from a regular computer not only
in its price and size, but also because of its ability to integrate with electronics
projects.  We can use the Raspberry Pi to control LEDs and AC devices and you’ll learn how to read
the state of buttons and switches.
