Pi packages

Tue Feb 06, 2018 10:18 pm

So I have had a Pi for quite a while but it has been sitting doing nothing other than retrieve and sharing data for FlightRadar.
I want to learn a lot more about creating things with a Pi. Can anyone recommend a good beginner starter pack so i can build something and Python code it do something? I have ideas of things to create for future but I need to create something from a manual which will help me to start off.

Yes....too many to list even a fraction of them. Check what's available at whichever Pi supplier you like.

The CamJam EduKits are worth a look. They are complete, but contain no superfluous 'padding'. The related worksheets are available to download for free.

But they might not match your interests...
