The last of our four books is a relatively slim volume (164 pages) that aims to provide you with a useful and reasonably comprehensive guide to getting a Raspberry Pi up and running for the first time. The book also describes a variety of interesting practical applications, including the use of webcams and other peripherals with the Raspberry Pi. There?s even a chapter for Arduino fans that shows how the Raspberry Pi can be used together with an Arduino single-board computer.
Getting Started with Raspberry Pi provides just the right amount of detail to get you up and running, and each chapter includes a section on ?Going Further? with handy links to on-line sources. On the downside, some of the hand-drawn sketches in the book are a little rough, but that does not detract from the overall usefulness of the book. Finally, it?s worth noting that the book does not have an index, but perhaps the authors will do something about this in a future edition?
