Would you like to run your own complete Media Center for your home? How about a video game console with hundreds or thousands of games loaded on it? What about your own remote file and media server accessible from any computer or mobile phone? GPS enabled camera for your car? Or how about Home Automation? If so, you should learn how to master the Raspberry Pi.

“The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video.”

In this workshop you’ll learn the following:

Learn the basics of setting up Raspbian OS on your Raspberry Pi.

Learn some basic Linux commands to help with using your Raspberry Pi

Learn how to interact with the GPIO pins on your Raspberry Pi to light and LED and read from a button
