You can download this book free now and forever, but buying in digital & print supports the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s charitable mission to democratise computing.

This book was written using an earlier version of Raspberry Pi OS. Please use Raspberry Pi OS (Legacy) for full compatibility. See magpi.cc/legacy for more information.
