- Install, administer, and maintain your Raspberry Pi
- Explore a new world of computing with this low cost, credit-card sized computer
- Connect your Raspberry Pi to other devices on local networks and utilise IoT services
With increasing interest in Maker Projects and the Internet of Things (IoT), students, scientists, and hobbyists are using the Raspberry Pi as a reliable, inexpensive platform to connect local devices to Internet services.
This book begins with recipes that are essential to installing the Raspberry Pi and configuring it for network access. Then it continues with recipes on installing common networking services such as firewalls and file sharing.
The final chapters include recipes for network monitoring, streaming data from the Raspberry Pi to IoT services, and using clusters of Raspberry Pis to store and analyze large volumes of data.
