Kano OS, Books, and Burner Availailable #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
While the specific Kano kit of Pi accessories aiming to make the RasPi as close to a working-out-of-the-box experience for young learners as possible (scroll down on their home page here to see the process of putting together a Kano) is not yet for sale online, but they did decide to share a number of the exciting resources they have been developing, including their books/lessons, and now their Kano OS and OS burning utility!
What’s Kano OS?
A fast, fun, full-featured operating system for Raspberry Pi, based on Debian Linux with a simple interface, seamless setup, automagic WiFi and Updater, and fantastic coding projects for all ages. Make and play in Minecraft, Pong, Snake, Scratch, and more.
