If you know anything about the Raspberry Pi, then you know the credit card-sized micro-computer is as versatile as they come. With a little ingenuity and some moderate tinkering, you can get one of these mini-powerhouses doing a whole host of laptop and automated programming tasks in a hurry.
Trouble is, it’s so versatile that it can actually be a little intimidating once you take it out of the box. What do you do first? And how? It’s a bit daunting, especially if your computer skills don’t range far beyond the on-off button.
You can consider The Complete Raspberry Pi Hacker Bundle ($19, over 90 percent off from TNW Deals) your instruction guide to the Pi’s powers. It’s four courses geared to helping you get the most out of the Pi and truly unlock the possibilities of these tiny titans.
The Raspberry Pi Beginner’s Bootcamp is just that — your novice training in the ways of the Pi. You’ll understand its components, how to get an operating system up and running, then how to enlist tools like Python and RetroPie to start building simple circuits and harnessing the Pi’s abilities. You’ll expand on that learning with the 2018 Ultimate Guide to Raspberry Pi, an additional 76 beginner-friendly lessons worth of exposure to using the Pi.
Getting Started With NodeMCU moves into how the Pi can expand to other starter boards, allowing you to carry out more advanced projects, including running animated graphics on an LCD and building a fully-functional web server to remotely control an AC appliance.
Finally, you’ll put all your newly-earned Pi skills to the test with Build Your Own GPS Tracking System With Raspberry Pi. After completing a setup and using location tracking through Google Maps, you’ll actually be able to do your own GPS tracking. Why use cool gadgets when you can just make your own?
The package is almost $400 worth of training, but with this limited time deal, the whole thing is on sale for just $19.
