Hello. So, I am having this college assignment about the RASPBERRY PI,including its history,how it works depending on each model and depending on the operating system it accomodates. Does anyone know any good book i could download or any trustable sources i could look for in general?Thank you
The Raspberry Pi is a wonderful device and between it and the Arduino, two of the neatest developments of the decade in my opinion.
Then again, I'm earning income off these 2 platforms, so I'm a little bit biased. Still, a Pi Zero W is a $10 computer with more RAM than the mainframes I used to work with back in school (you can actually emulate an IBM System/370 on a Pi as fast or faster than they originally ran ). And unlike the old IBM room-fillers, a Pi runs on about 5 Watts of power and doesn't require water chillers.
So for less than $100, you can easily set up a computer system as powerful or more so than the desktop systems we used at work up until at least the mid 1990s. Running industrial OS's, such as the Raspbian (Debian) OS, which lack very few features that the Intel-based Debian distros have. You can plug in cameras, touchscreens, USB devices, HDMI video, hi-quality audio (I have one system with a soundcard "HAT" on it), and a whole host of other peripherals. I have a Pi Zero W running a camera watching my front door and a Pi 3 running my CNC milling machine.
There are books, magazines and websites galore covering the Pi, but the best place to start is probably the official Raspberry Pi website.
And of course the absolute best way of all is to actually get your hands on a Pi, an HDMI monitor, and a USB mouse and keyboard. Add power and a micro-SD card with OS on it and go!
