Raspberry Pi Hacks

Project: Raspberry Pi

Maybe you bought a Raspberry Pi a year or two ago and never got around to using it. Or you built something interesting, but now there's a new version of the Pi and new add-ons, and you want to know if they could make your project even better? The Raspberry Pi has grown from its original purpose as a teaching tool to become the tiny computer of choice for many makers, allowing those with varied Linux and hardware experience to have a fully functional computer the size of a credit card powering their ideas. Regardless of where you are in Pi experience, join Ruth Suehle and Tom Callaway to hear some of the best tricks for getting the most out of the Raspberry Pi. They'll also share some of the best projects they and others have built, from gaming devices to home automation, and they'll fill you in on what the Raspberry Pi 2 can help you do.
