Course Introduction

This course is taught by a team of electrical engineers from Stanford and IIT Madras.

Raspberry Pi is a series of credit card-sized single board computers made in the UK by a non-profit Raspberry Pi Foundation for educational purposes. It is a tiny affordable computer that you use to learn programming through practical projects. It is capable of doing everything a desktop computer can do, from making spreadsheets, word-processing to playing high-definition videos and games.
