For those of you who haven’t yet played around with Raspberry Pi, this one’s for you. In this how-to video, Matt walks you through how to get a Raspberry Pi up and running. It’s the first in a series of Raspberry Pi videos that we’re releasing to accompany our new book, Getting Started with Raspberry Pi. It covers Raspberry Pi and Linux basics and then works up to using Scratch, Python, GPIO (to control LED’s and switches), and web development on the board.
