If you re looking to get started with Raspberry Pi here is an excellent beginners tutorial that take you through setup all the way up to using the GPIO pins to control objects through the web. — Douglas
Welcome to the Raspberry Pi Workshop for Beginners! Here you'll be able to follow along with our series of bite-sized videos that cover everything you'll need to know to get started with your Raspberry Pi, and start making awesome projects. My name is Michael and I'm an electronics enthusiast with particular interest in embedded electronics. As we progress through the workshops, you'll find helpful material next to each video - these could be code snippets, commands to issue, circuits to build, or links to other resources.
To follow along with the workshop you'll of course need a Raspberry Pi and a few other bits and pieces. These are:
A Raspberry Pi (I'm using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B)
A micro SD card (8GB or larger, class 10 preferred)
A power supply to safely power your Pi
A USB keyboard and mouse
A monitor with HDMI input, and an HDMI lead. (A modern television works in a pinch!)
A few components that you'll need are:
Some Male-Female jumper leads
Some solid-core wire suitable for breadboards.
Resistors (470 Ohm can be used for all circuits in the workshop)
Most of what is required is available in our Starter Kit.
