I’ve been lucky to have been able to work with Matt Richardson on our newest Make Books title: Getting Started With Raspberry Pi. The book is now available in Early Release form, and the finished book will be out for Christmas.
With Early Release ebooks, you get books as they are developed so you can take advantage of these technologies before the official release. You’ll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they’re written, and the final ebook bundle.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

I purchased the early release. As of today it is only a single chapter -#8 – regarding use of the GPIO pins. I am optimistic about the book, but a new user cannot rely on it to help get started today.
