Banana Pi is a small but powerful ARM board that can run on multiple operating systems. Banana Pi has been adopted by tech-savvy enthusiasts and hobbyists to develop their projects.
This book will take you from opening your Banana Pi's box for the first time all the way to working with hardware and code. We will explore the different configuration options and operating system choices. You'll proceed to working with Banana Pi hooked up to a breadboard and connecting hardware components such as LEDs and motors to the board. Further, you'll build an Internet radio working with an LCD display, interacting with user input, and streaming audio over the Internet. This book also acquaints you with another really popular use of Banana Pi, home servers. Finally, you'll realize the power of the robust hardware of Banana Pi by playing games on Android and Linux.
By the end of this book, you should be familiar with the basics of development using Banana Pi, from installation to building basic projects.
