Learn Linux and Raspberry Pi the smart way with this training course under the H4H Maker Academy.
Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer ideal for learning about computing, Linux, interfacing with hardware such as sensors and actuators, as well as programming. It’s cheap, but powerful, and makes it possible to interact with the physical world.
In this course we’ll use the Raspberry Pi to learn Linux as well as some simple programming with Python and some interesting hardware projects.
We’ll conclude the course with setting up a Raspberry Pi as a working FM Transmitter, broadcasting over FM!
The course will be valuable for the Arduino enthusiast / hobbyist who would like to learn more about how to add WiFi capability to Arduino or any other electronic projects.
These ESP8266 WiFi modules can then be used to connect to the IOT (Internet Of Things) environment, by connecting all sorts of devices (actuators/sensors).
Once you have accomplished connecting all your devices, complete Home Automation can be achieved..
