Raspberry Pi Compendium by Sebastian Pohl

The "Raspberry Pi Compendium" by Sebastian Pohl comes from BMU Verlag and offers all the information you need to get started and your first projects with the mini-computer on 516 pages. After an introduction with the history and the previous models of the Raspberry Pi, there is an overview of the available accessories. Then it continues with the setup, whereby the usable operating systems (Linux distributions) are discussed.

This is followed by a separate chapter on Linux, followed by explanations about programming with Python. It continues with explanations on the subjects of electronics, display elements, displays and LEDs. As with the Arduino, various components can be added and used on the Raspberry Pi. It continues accordingly with chapters on sensors and actuators. The book concludes with more than 10 projects that can be imitated.

What can you build / program with the Raspberry Pi?

With the right knowledge and a little patience, a wide variety of devices and electronic aids can be tinkered with the Raspberry Pi. From the automatic watering system for the houseplants to the remote-controlled car to the smart control element for the smart home, everything is possible. You can also use it to build streaming boxes for the television or projector, although a Fire TV Stick would probably be cheaper here: D With a search on the Internet you will find numerous possible uses and learning projects for the Raspberry Pi. Have fun!

  1. Due to the chip crisis, Raspberrys are hardly available at the moment. And if so, then at inflated prices.
    Even used devices that once cost 30 euros are now regularly more than doubled on Ebay.
    I hope that will get better soon, because I always need a Raspberry.
