Raspberry Pi is a low-cost computing platform that provides a way to building interesting applications using common programming languages. It also opens up the possibility of interesting hardware scenarios as well. This course will cover the basics of what you need to get up and running with the Raspberry Pi.
Although Jon spent the first few years of his professional life as an attorney, he quickly
found chasing bits more interesting than chasing ambulances. Since 2011, Jon has been concentrating on the mobile world. Working mainly in iOS, Jon
has helped numerous companies create and transform mobile teams into teams that can
create, build, test, and deploy mobile applications with ease.
Programming the Raspberry Pi Hi. This is Jon Flanders with Pluralsight, and in this module I'm going to talk about programming the Raspberry Pi. So, this module is all about writing code.
Raspberry Pi as a DVR Hi. This is Jon Flanders with Pluralsight, and in this module I'm going to talk about Raspberry Pi as a DVR. So, this module is about one thing, which is video. XMBC is the software of choice if you're going to make your Raspberry Pi into a DVR. It's open source, it has a number of plug-ins available for it, it's supported by an open source foundation called the XBMC Foundation, it is cross-platform, but it's a very popular choice for Linux, and so therefore the Raspberry Pi. It actually is used by commercial vendors as well. Boxee is one commercial DVR that is built on top of XBMC.
