Descripción del producto
The Raspberry Pi is a small, low-cost computing platform that can be adapted for 1000s of electronic applications. It can use the free Linux operating system, which allows it to do very complex tasks, such as connecting to the Internet, acting as a web server and streaming live video data.
Available books on the topic skirt over the engineering principles, often requiring readers to have the exact same electronics hardware in order to follow their recipe. This approach often only imparts superficial knowledge as, when the design needs to be changed, the reader does not have the necessary skills. Exploring Raspberry Pis aim is that readers will be able to build systems that use any type of electronics, electronic modules or external peripherals. The book caters to advanced beginners, providing all of the engineering skills that they need to transition to being an expert user.
The first part of the book deals with the basics of using the Raspberry Pi, ensuring the reader can use the platform and that they have all of the necessary electronics, Linux and programming skills in order to build basic embedded Linux applications. The second part deals with the intermediate topics of interfacing, controlling and communicating with almost any type of electronics component or module. The final part of the book looks at how the Raspberry Pi can be used for advanced applications including: interacting with real world objects, programming, working with video and images, audio, and more.
Chapters will fully integrate the video content on the author's YouTube channel and his web/blog site. In addition, there will be a full git repository that will structure all of the code, scripts and associated supplementary materials against the chapter structure.

"Exploring Raspberry Pi is THE book to go to if you are interested in learning about the impressive physical computing capabilities of the Raspberry Pi platform. Derek Molloy imparts the electronics, programming, and embedded Linux skills that are vital to today's innovators in building the next generation of Internet of Things applications.".
? Eben Upton, Co-creator of the Raspberry Pi
BUILD THE SKILLS YOU NEED TO INNOVATE
Economical and versatile, the Raspberry Pi can be adapted for thousands of applications. Open up all its possibilities by applying engineering principles along with Linux programming techniques, and develop the skills you need to design and build an endless array of projects.
Exploring Raspberry Pi first covers the basics of the hardware platform, recommended accessories, software, embedded Linux systems, and Linux programming techniques. Then it takes you deeper into interfacing, controlling, and communicating, with detailed information about Raspberry Pi GPIOs, buses, UART devices, and USB peripherals. You will learn to configure a cross-compilation environment in order to build large-scale software applications, as well as how to combine hardware and software to enable the Raspberry Pi to interact effectively with its physical environment. Finally, you'll discover how to use the Raspberry Pi for advanced interfacing and interaction applications such as the Internet of Things (IoT); wireless communication and control; rich user interfaces; images, video, and audio; and Linux kernel programming.
Instead of recipes for a few specific projects, Exploring Raspberry Pi arms you with the skills needed to build the projects that exist in your imagination. You'll learn to:
- Develop essential Linux and programming skills
- Build Internet of Things (IoT) applications
- Master interfacing, controlling, and communication
- Design applications that interact with the physical environment
- Utilize the Arduino platform as a service processor
- Build wireless communication applications
- Write and install a custom Linux loadable kernel module
- Apply the Raspberry Pi 3 and Raspberry Pi Zero to your projects

Ha surgido un problema al filtrar las opiniones justo en este momento. Vuelva a intentarlo en otro momento.
El único pero, seria que el libro llego algo maltratado, (quiero creer que por que paso por aduana,pero no se), pero salvo eso es un excelente material.

The Kindle edition's a disappointment. Here's why.
1. The book has a great table of contents with a 3 level outline; chapters, sub headings under each chapter and sub topics under each sub heading. The Kindle edition only has a 2 level outline, no sub topics, making it extremely cumbersome, if not useless, as a navigation tool.
2. The Kindle edition left out the index. Really, no index, and no, the global word search is not the same as a good index created and edited by a professional indexer.
So minimal table of contents and no index makes the Kindle edition pretty useless as a convenient reference. If you don't believe me, try to find the topic section on Transistors using the Kindle edition. I'm sure you can eventually, but it's a PITA.
By the way, I think it's sad that my one star review brings down the rating of the paper edition. Amazon, I should be able to review the Kindle edition separately from the paper edition. Especially if they are substantially different.
The book starts from basics - Raspberry Pi hardware, basic Linux commands, basic circuits for interfacing, etc. He then gets into the depths of how to interface all of these together. I'm fortunate to have enough background in these areas to weave through this, but those with less of a computer or electronics background might want to have a local geek or two handy to call in for help when needed. He has excellent coding examples in multiple languages, builds from simple to more complex examples, and provides libraries to continue your own programming projects using the knowledge you have gained throughout the book.
I'm an Electrical / Computer Engineer by trade, and I've had an interest in introducing hobby electronics to my kids. When I first saw the Raspberry Pi, I thought this might be the ideal platform on which to develop that. This book is the missing piece to that puzzle for me. It's exactly what I was hoping for, with all the details one could want about making this magnificent little board talk to other devices. I picture many blinking lights and beeping speakers in the months to come as a result of this book! I consider this a bargain-priced book for everything that's contained within it. If there's something you want to connect up to a Raspberry Pi, odds are, there's a solution somewhere in this book. I highly recommend it.
To make this review much shorter - if you want to do projects with the RPi, buy this book. It explains things about how the RPi works in great detail, gives tons of examples of sample circuits, and shows the math as well for calculating current drain and voltage drops for most of the circuits, so you're not just plugging things in blindly. It is full of practical advice on how to wire things up so you do things properly and don't blow up your Pi (like "use an optocoupler if you have an external power supply connected to the load").
Further, it has an extensive section on programming the Pi, showing programs at a variety of complexity levels and running times to turn the GPIO pins on and off (which is what we most care about when programming the Pi).
