This course will provide the information you need to Master the Raspberry Pi 3! It assumes no prior programming or electronics knowledge and walks you through everything you need to know to use the platform to the fullest! Here are some of the topics that are covered:

  • We will first dive into what the Raspberry Pi is and learn what components you need to set everything up

  • Step by step videos on how to set it up

  • We will walk through how to easily flash an SD card with any OS for the Pi

  • We will talk  about tips to prevent SD card corruption

  • We will show configuration tips for the Raspbian Operating System

  • Multiple methods of connecting remotely to your Raspberry Pi will be covered to show how you can run it in "headless mode" without a monitor

  • We dive into the Terminal and Linux commands to show how you can navigate your system, work with files, perform network and system commands and keyboard shortcuts

  • We dive in depth into the APT Package system for installing software and show how to install any software for your Pi

  • Best practices for securing your Raspberry Pi are covered

  • We install a Web Server using different approaches

  • We work with GPIO pins and show how you can control LEDs, determine if a button is pressed, work with a PIR sensor and will make a PIR sensor alarm circuit

  • We will do Python code reviews for the projects so you will understand how the software and hardware work together

  • We work with cameras and images and show how you can setup a USB web cam and install software to create a live streaming camera feed

  • We use the Raspberry Pi Camera module and show how you can interact with it programmatically to take photos, video and create special effects

  • We create a working Amazon Echo Clone with the Alexa Voice Service

  • Much much more!

No previous programming or electronics knowledge is required.

You get the best information that I have compiled over years of trial and error and experience!
