Hello guys!! Welcome to tutorial series for Raspberry Pi started by Entrench Electronics. In this tutorial we are going to take an overview of small computer Raspberry Pi.
The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python.
The Raspberry Pi hardware has evolved through several versions that feature variations in memory capacity, and peripheral device support. We will start to learn
And we are going to start with Raspberry Pi 1 B+.
