Raspberry Pi is a nano-computer, the size of a credit-card that works with Linux, that plugs into a computer monitor or TV and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It’s a little device that enables makers to explore computing and learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. When installing Rapsbian on Pi, we take advantage of a GUI interface, many USB ports and a GPIO interface to link LEDs, small engines and sensors. It’s capable of doing everything you’d expect from a desktop computer : internet browsing, playing high-def videos, making spreadsheets and playing games.
