Sensors, blinky things and code to get you connected to Google Cloud IoT Core and build end to end solutions.
This getting started guide assumes you have enrolled in the Google Cloud Platform, Cloud IoT Core Beta program. It will step you through setting up the gcloud SDK tools, getting your Raspberry Pi 3 connected to the internet and securely registered as a device with a Google Cloud project.
If you purchased the kit that includes the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, this comes with a pre-formatted NOOBS microSD card. Simply inserting the card into the Pi and powering up the Pi with the included 5v micro USB power supply will boot the Pi and with no interaction, it will default to installing the Raspbian Linux distribution. This is what we want. There are many ways to get a Raspbian and the Pi set up for Google Cloud IoT Core functionality but this guide will focus on getting Raspbian on your WiFi network and headless with secure shell running, gcloud tools installed and IoT Core dependencies for Python installed. These steps will require an HDMI monitor, USB keyboard and mouse.
