Book Description:

The Raspberry Pi is a $35, full-blown micro computer that runs Linux. Use its video, audio, network, and digital I/O to create media centers, web servers, interfaces to external hardware - you name it. And this book gives you everything you need to get started. Raspberry Pi: A Quick-Start Guide gives you everything you need to get the Raspberry Pi up and running and doing cool stuff. You'll get started by learning what additional hardware you need and how to connect it, install Debian Linux and configure it to your needs, and customize the Pi's firmware to get the most out of your hardware. Then the fun begins. You'll connect the Pi to your home network and try surfing the web and tweeting messages. You'll learn how to get the most out of Midori, the Pi's standard browser. Then in a few simple steps you'll turn the Pi into a kiosk system that displays Twitter live search information. You'll also learn how you can control the desktops of other PCs in your house with the Pi. Once you have the basics down, you'll explore the Pi's versatility with a series of home projects. Turn it into a web server in your home network. Convert the Pi into a powerful multimedia center so you can watch high-definition video and listen to your favorite music. Play classic video games. Use the GPIO pins on the Raspberry Pi to build electronics projects such as an "out of memory" alarm, and learn how to access the project using a web browser. Then connect digital and analog sensors to the Pi to monitor the outside world. Power to the Pi!
