A very clean, clear and simple tutorial series that make a range of concepts easy to understand and implement. HIghly recommended for beginners who are new to PI and wish to learn it.
Wow! What a well-done class to walk through the steps of doing something useful with Raspberry Pi. It covers so many things that are helpful to understand how to succeed in this environment: python libraries to use, how to load new linux packages, basic hardware considerations, exposure to a cloud API (twitter in this case), the nano editor, examples of using SPI, I2C and various devices (temp sensor, buttons, switches, motion detectors). This really has stoked my interest in experimenting with this. I don't currently have a Raspberry Pi board or breadboards and the parts for this particular project, but it certainly will have me looking for kits to begin.
