Linux for Makers: Understanding the Operating System That Runs
Raspberry Pi and Other Maker SBCs 1st Edition
Linux is a powerful open-source operating system that has been around
for many years and is widely used for running servers and websites.
But most students and Makers encounter it for the first time when they
are working on projects with their Raspberry Pi or similar
single-board computers (SBCs) such as BeagleBone Black or Intel
Galileo. Linux for Makers is the first book that explains the Linux
operating system specifically for Makers, as opposed to programmers
and administrators. By gaining a deeper understanding of Linux, Makers
can add another useful tool to their kit that will help them build
their projects more easily.
