This is a really excellent introduction to the Pi, and programming generally. It got us through setting up the gear to performing minecraft wizardry. Everything is explained simply but clearly with enough detail to help children learn what it is they're actually doing.

This is a great book for beginners and even people with some experience using Raspberry Pi. It's well written and easy to follow with lots of code examples. Though I'm experienced with Raspberry Pi I learned new coding with this book. Great resource for anyone seeking to learn more.

Very good tutorial on operating system.

This is a great introduction to the Pi. Though aimed at kids, most adults who are new to programming won't feel that they're being talked down at. Clear layout, easy to follow.

It mainly covered the programming with raspberry pie, as one would on a regular computer. So as a proof of concept that the raspberry is a computer, this is fine.

It is worthwhile investing time in learning scratch and python on their own, each with a separate source. Then you can practice what you have learned on the pie.

I was hoping that the book would cover the hardware, but it did not.

So, while this book highlights a nice scope of capabilities on the pi, it is not particularly useful in te

This book gives a great introduction to the Raspberry Pi for younger users, but will be challenging for people who have no experience in coding, computing or electronics.

It's very difficult to give an introduction to the major capabilities of the Raspberry Pi, but all things considered - this is an excellent effort. The difficulties are partly because there is so much one can do with a Raspberry Pi, but also partly because some knowledge is needed to use the tools available. For example, you ne

Great for kids of all ages.

I really enjoyed the ease of reading this book. This book I'd very informative and clearly written from a teacher's perspective. While it is written for the young, I in my old age enjoyed it and learned as well.

“Suppose you could pick up a turtle, dip his tail into coloured ink, place him on a piece of paper and make him walk around so that his tail paints a spiral shape, a pentagon or a noughts and crosses grid? This adventure introduces you to different ways that you can create shapes or line drawings using code.” 0 likes
