Getting Started With Raspberry Pi Available in Early Release. Brian writes –

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.

This concise beginners tutorial is in the same style and format as our popular Getting Started With titles for Arduino, Processing and others (it’s a bit different than Getting Started with Dwarf Fortress though).

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.

  1. 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.
