Through his site PiHardware. This is Tim's first ever book; it mirrors his own experience of discovering the Raspberry Pi and showcasing its fantastic abilities. Writing a book about the Raspberry Pi wouldn't have been possible without the creation itself, so thanks to the Raspberry Pi foundation for their hard work and good humor in making it a huge success. The Raspberry Pi community consists of an excellent group of exceptionally helpful people from all over the world, and it has been a pleasure to be involved with it from the start.
In particular, I would like to thank The MagPi team that has supported me by reviewing the chapters and helping me achieve the best possible standard. Also thanks to the Pi3D team who worked hard to get their library running with Python 3 for the book. Thanks to my family, particularly my wife Kirsty, who has supported me every step of the way and daily suffered my obsession with the Raspberry Pi.
The excitement my daughters, Phoebe and Amelia, have as they discover new things inspires me to share and teach as much as I can. He graduated to the Amiga in the early s and spent countless hours learning the insides of the operating system. Now with 14 years' experience in testing, he works as a test manager with an emphasis on test automation and extolls the virtues of Agile using Kanban and behavior- driven development to great effect. Test early, test often; fix early, fix often.
In his spare time, Colin is part of the editorial team for The MagPi www. With several published articles and having reviewed and edited many more, he has built up extensive knowledge of this tiny platform.
He can also be found jointly running The MagPi stand at regular Bristol DigiMakers events in the UK, demonstrating projects such as a remote control robot arm, a roverbot, and LED display boards, all of which he has programmed in Python.
He currently runs a blog related to the Raspberry Pi at www. Ian currently works as a senior product owner at SAP Canada.
Being introduced to the Raspberry Pi not only rekindled his desire to "tinker", but also provided him with an opportunity to give back to the community. Consequently, Ian is a very active member of the editorial team for The MagPi, a monthly magazine for the Raspberry Pi, which you can read online or download for free from www.
I would like to thank my darling wife, Louise, and my awesome kids, Emily and Molly, for their patience and support. You can upgrade to the eBook version at www. Get in touch with us at service packtpub.

Modern home computers, tablets, and phones are typically focused on providing content to the user to consume, either as a passive viewer or through basic interaction via games and activities. However, the Raspberry Pi turns this concept on its head.
The idea is that the user provides the input and the imagination, and the Raspberry Pi becomes an extension of their creativity. Resnick's book brims with stories of children programming all manner of elaborate projects—games, animations, and visual stories—all driven by passion and purpose. And readers will recognize an overlap with open source ideas and principles. For example, the online Scratch community promotes the sharing and remixing of student project source code—think GitHub for kids.
Lifelong Kindergarten is packed with ideas for educators and teachers. However, forward-looking leaders keen to optimize their teams for maximum creativity and innovation will discover inspiration in the wisdom of children.
Python Crash Course by Eric Matthes I found myself easily following this fast-paced introduction to Python programming. This book will have you writing your own programs very quickly. Information is clearly presented in "byte-size" chunks and the book is full of examples and "Try-it-Yourself" sections after each concept introduction.
The book covers game creation, data visualization, web scraping, generating data, downloading data, getting started with Django, building and deploying and app and working with Git. Follow Eric Matthes on Twitter and take a look his resources for the book on Github. Python and other code examples from the book are available on GitHub. Raspberry Pi 3: Setup, Programming and Developing Amazing Projects with Raspberry Pi for Beginners by Steve McCarthy This book includes all the materials you will need for each project and task at the beginning of the developing with Raspberry Pi for ultimate beginners.
The Open Schoolhouse by Charlie Reisinger To best prepare students for the future, we must think deeply and openly about our vision for school technology today.
I believe every student, in every school, deserves equal and open access to computers. Students should have the freedom to explore and experiment with their school-issued devices. In an open schoolhouse, every student is trusted with learning technology and empowered to rewire and reshape the world. Charlie Reisinger's seminal work on the unique opportunity school leaders and teachers have as they prepare our youth for the future of life and work is a must read.
This book is a real page turner and will have you questioning the validity of your curriculum in an increasingly open world.
