Raspberry Pi Training

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Setup and operate the Raspberry Pi and Understand the basics of the Linux OS used on the Pi
  • Understand the basics of the X Windows System (the GUI environment) and Program the Pi for a simple GUI-based game
  • Program the Pi to access a network, to play audio,  to control light emitting diodes (LEDs) attached to the GPIO pins, to get feedback from a switch connected to the GPIO pins, to get the temperature from a sensor connected to the GPIO pins and to detect room light from a photocell censor connected to the GPIO pins
