Raspberry Pi is taking off like a rocket! Millions of people worldwide are using this incredibly low-cost board to learn powerful hardware hacking techniques - and to create an incredible array of creative and useful projects. Now, for the first time, there's an easy and complete guide to hacking Raspberry Pi - and it requires absolutely no experience with either hardware hacking or programming! This lush, 4-color guide is loaded with step-by-step photos that guide you every step of the way, and it's written by Timothy Warner, who's personally helped thousands of people get comfortable with new technology. Raspberry Pi Hacking takes a holistic approach, covering a wide range of topics - from the basics of the device to controlling it to building complete projects with it.Start with all the basics: * What Raspberry Pi is, why it's so exciting, and how you can use it * Touring the Raspberry Pi hardware and peripherals * Understanding Raspberry Pi storage, USB and Bluetooth connections, networking, and more * Installing and configuring Raspbian, Raspberry Pi's native Linux-based operating system * Managing users and configuration files * Networking Raspberry Pi and adding Wi-Fi * Programming Raspberry Pi with Python; Scratch; XHTML; and PHP Then move on to build each of these great projects, step by step: * Media Center * Retro Atari 2600-compatible console game station * Firewall and personal VPN * Web Server * Webcam/Time Lapse Device * Picture Frame Finally, now that you're ready for advanced techniques, learn how to: * Overclock the Raspberry Pi CPU to get even better performance * Link Raspberry Pi with the Arduino board to do even more interesting projects * Even get started with robotics!
