Setting up a Raspberry Pi 3 from scratch and getting it to blink an LED in less than an hour. via hanselman
Every STEM house should have a Raspberry Pi or six! We’ve got 4? Or 5? They end up living inside robots, or taped to the garage door, or running SCUMMVM Game Emulators, or powering DIY GameBoys.
If you have a Raspberry Pi 3, awesome. If not, this should work with an original Pi or a Pi 3. You’ll want to make sure you have a few parts ready to save you time and trips to the store! I recommend a complete Raspberry Pi Kit when you’re just getting started as it guarantees you’ll be up and running in minutes. They include the mini SD Card (acts as a hard drive), a power supply, a case, etc. All you need to provide is a USB Keyboard and Mouse. I ended up getting a cheap Mini USB wired keyboardand cheap USB wired mouse for simplicity.
