Are you a developer who would like to be able to control things in the real world? This course will show you how easy it is to get started using the Raspberry Pi platform and ecosystem to build fun and useful projects.
This course helps to solve the problem that many developers have, they want to be able to control things in the physical world.
In this course, Raspberry Pi for Developers, you will learn how to work with a Raspberry Pi. First, you will learn how to setup a Raspberry Pi. Next, you will discover how you can write code that runs on the Raspberry Pi. Finally, you will explore how to connect your Raspberry Pi to hardware like LEDs, servos, motors, and cameras. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Raspberry Pi that is needed to be able to design and create your own Raspberry Pi solutions.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Jon Flanders, and welcome to my course, Raspberry Pi for Developers Playbook. I'm a developer, architect, and trainer with over 20 years of experience in both writing code and explaining code to other developers. I was once like you, a developer lost, unsatisfied with writing text to a console window, or adding buttons to a web page or an app. What I really wanted to do was write code that made things happen in the real world. Well, my dream came through in 2012 when the Raspberry Pi Foundation released their small single board computer, the Raspberry Pi. For me, it opened up the possibility of interacting with sensors, LEDs, buttons, motors, and a plethora of other hardware. To help you get started in this world, here are some of the major topics this course will include, what is a Raspberry Pi and what you can do with it, how to write code to run on the Raspberry Pi, how to use that code to interact with hardware attached to the Pi, and how to run machine learning models on the Pi. Once you complete this course, you should have all the knowledge you need to build interesting and cool projects with a Raspberry Pi. After the course, you will have the skill to dive into more advanced topics like using Raspberry Pi Hats to interact with even more hardware or combining a Raspberry Pi with one or more Arduino boards to create more complicated and useful projects. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn about the fun and amazing things you can do with a Raspberry Pi in the Raspberry Pi for Developers Playbook course, at Pluralsight.
