I'd like to announce a new (and free) book on the Raspberry Pi. The book can be found here:
I've been working in the software business for over 30 years but until recently, hadn't been playing directly with Micro Processors. When I bought a Raspberry Pi and then an Arduino, I'm afraid I got hooked. In my house I am surrounded by computers of all shapes, sizes and capacities … any one of them with orders of magnitude more power than any of these small devices … however, I still found myself fascinated.
As I studied the devices, I started to make notes and my pages of notes continued to grow and grow.
This book is my collated and polished version of those notes. Rather than keep them to myself, I offer them to all of us in the Raspberry Pi community in the hope that they will be of some value. My plan is to continue to update this work as we all learn more and share what we find in the community forums. As such, I will re-release the work at regular intervals so please check back at the book's home page for the latest. I do not plan on ever calling this book "finished" as there will always be more to add. Because of the breadth and depth of material that we want to cover, it is unlikely that you will want to read the book linearly from cover to cover. Instead, I recommend that you familiarize yourself with the table of contents and come back to it as and when you need information.
As you read, make sure that you fully understand that there are undoubtedly inaccuracies, errors in my understanding and errors in my writing. Only by feedback and time will we be able to correct those. Please forgive the grammatical errors and spelling mistakes that my spell checker hasn't caught.
