With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form—the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes—so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters are available, and the final ebook bundle is released.
Arduino and Raspberry Pi have brought many new people to the world of electronics, particularly artists, hobbyists, and designers who aren't trained in electrical engineering. If you’re among them, don’t fret. Rather than run out and get an EE degree, just pick up this handy cookbook whenever you need to solve a problem on your project.
Author Simon Monk (Raspberry Pi Cookbook) breaks down this complex subject into recipes that provide immediate solutions to specific issues. With this book, you can quickly search electronics topics and find the recipe you need. Each recipe includes a discussion on why and how the solution works, and allows you to explore as much or as little theory as you’re comfortable with.
