Learn Electronics with Raspberry Pi - Programmer Books


Learning electronics can be tremendous fun ― your first flashing LED circuit is a reason to celebrate! But where do you go from there, and how can you move into more challenging projects without spending a lot of money on proprietary kits? One excellent answer is Raspberry Pi. Raspberry Pi is everywhere, it's inexpensive, and it's a wonderful tool for teaching about electronics and programming. Learn Electronics with Raspberry Pi shows you how to make a variety of cool projects using the Pi with programming languages like Scratch and Python, with no experience necessary.

Exploring Raspberry Pi: Interfacing to the Real World with Embedded Linux


Exploring Raspberry Pi is the innovators guide to bringing Raspberry Pi to life. This book favors engineering principles over a'recipe' approach to give you the skills you need to design and build your own projects. You'll understand the fundamental principles in a way that transfers to any type of electronics, electronic modules, or external peripherals, using a "learning by doing" approach that caters to both beginners and experts. The book begins with basic Linux and programming skills, and helps you stock your inventory with common parts and supplies. Next, you'll learn how to make parts work together to achieve the goals of your project, no matter what type of components you use.

Raspberry Pi Electronics Projects for the Evil Genius [PDF] - Programmer Books


THIS BOOK WILL INTRODUCE you to the Raspberry Pi and provide 12 projects that will lead you through some simple, fundamental operations up to some fairly complex ones. The Raspberry Pi, despite its small size, is a fully functional computer capable of running a full-fledged Linux operating system. It is also the most inexpensive computer with this level of functionality that is presently available to the public. A look at a bit of history regarding the Raspberry Pi (or RasPi as I will now refer to it) and its originally intended market may help you understand the constraints and limitations that subsequently ensued. The RasPi concept began around 2006 with Dr. Eben Upton and his colleagues at the University of Cambridge's Computer Laboratory in Cambridge, England.

Apple now shows device repairability scores in France


With the EU outlining a green deal that seeks to achieve climate neutrality by 2050, scrutiny has turned to the shelf life of gadgets that contribute to the barrage of e-waste produced annually on the continent. In a bid to tackle the junk problem, France last year voted to introduce an index of repairability for a variety of electronics, from washing machines to smartphones. Now that the law has come into effect, Apple (whose phones are notoriously hard to fix through DIY means) has started listing iPhone and MacBook repairability scores on its online store in France. As reported by The Verge, the rating covers how easily a device can be disassembled and the availability of repair manuals and spare parts. The otherwise stellar iPhone 12 range received a sub-par repairability score of 6/10 under the new index.
