Recently i order Raspberry Pi For one of my Project Work and i fall in love with it. So i decided to share my experience with Raspberry Pi . The Raspberry Pi is a tiny and affordable computer that you can use to learn programming through fun, practical projects. The Raspberry Pi Come in different size and configuration. The one i purchase is RASPBERRY PI 2 MODEL B. It is the second generation Raspberry Pi. It replaced the original Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+ in February 2015. Following are the configuration of Pi 2

Raspbian is the Foundation’s official supported operating system for Pi. There are various version of it, which you can find on Raspbian Download section. Raspbian comes pre-installed with plenty of software for education, programming and general use. It has Python, Scratch, Sonic Pi, Java, Mathematica and more and I have also installed various software that needed for my project.
- Java 1.7
- VNC Server for accessing RASPBIAN on windows
- XRDP its a windows remote desktop access tool
Installing software on PI is like cutting cake and you found thousands of resources on net. Following are some useful links that might help you to getting started with Raspberry Pi.
I will continue on it later and share my hands on experience with you. I also share my project work which might be useful for someone.
