Got A Raspberry Pi For Christmas? What’s Next?

It’s the 25th of December 2018, so that means it is Christmas Day!

If you are one of the many lucky ones, and woke up to some Raspberry Pi goodies under your tress, congratulations!

Now you have unwrapped your Pi, and noticed how small it is (credit card sized to be accurate, we don’t lie) we can begin!

The Raspberry Pi can be used for some many project ideas. From robots, musical instruments, virtual pets, stop motion cameras, the Raspberry Pi can make it all!

It will also help you to learn programming, allow you to play games, offer the chance to explore space and automate your home.

Maybe not this project… changing the subject.

But… there’s a few things you need to get started:

  1. You’ll need to make sure you have the latest Raspbian operating system (OS) on your Pi. You may have been given an SD with Rasbian pre-installed but if not, head to the Raspberry Pi downloads page to get it.
  2. You’ll need to plug your Pi into a monitor (your TV will do), keyboard and mouse in order to get started. You’ll also need a good-quality power supply providing at least 2A.
  3. Get coding. Why not come to one of our events to learn more or check out our online tutorials?

Have a fantastic Christmas!
