Raspberry Pi's Description of the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+

Description

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ (Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Plus) is the latest version of the Raspberry Pi, a tiny credit card size computer. Just add a keyboard, mouse, display, power supply, micro SD card with installed Linux Distribution and you'll have a fully fledged computer that can run applications from word processors and spreadsheets to games.

As the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B + supports HD video, you can even create a media centre with it. The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is the first Raspberry Pi to be open-source from the get-go, expect it to be the defacto embedded Linux board in all the forums.

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ Guides
Enabling SSH

In this guide we're going to learn how to turn on Secure Shell (SSH) on your Raspberry Pi.

SSH enables us to make a secure connection to our Raspberry Pi from the command line on our Mac, PC or Linux computer.

We will use the command line app raspi-config to enable SSH.

Create a NOOBS MicroSD Card

While there are many Raspberry Pi images to use, NOOBS is a great option for beginners. It is an easy operating system install manager. If you don't already have a NOOBS SD Card, you can create your own.

In this guide, you will learn how to format your microSD card, load NOOBS on it and install Raspbian.

It's the easiest way to get started with the Raspberry Pi!

Install TensorFlow on Raspberry Pi

Installing TensorFlow on the Raspberry Pi has never been easier.

With TensorFlow on your Raspberry Pi, you can create neural networks that can perform image recognition, data classification and more!

In this guide, we will install the open source machine learning library TensorFlow by cloning the repository from Github. We will use a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ and the recommended power supply for it.

Installing TensorFlow will enable you to complete out other AI guides.

Get Started with Pi Camera V2

The Raspberry Pi Camera V2 board is a high quality 8 megapixel camera that can take 3280 x 2464 pixel static images as well as capture videos in HD 1080p.

In this guide, you will learn to set up and get started with the Raspberry Pi Camera V2 using Python and picamera.

After this, you will be able to work on more advanced projects such as a time-lapse camera, a home security system, motion detection, time lapse photography, slow-motion video and much more!

Program an Uno with Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi and Arduino are both popular boards, but each are better suited for different things. That said, why not combine the two?

In this guide, you will learn to connect an Arduino UNO to the Raspberry Pi and program it from an Arduino IDE within Raspbian. A Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is used here but the instructions are the same for any other board. We will build a circuit using a breadboard, and write a sketch on the Arduino IDE that will have LEDs lighting up.

Once you've mastered the basics, you are one step closer to working on more advanced projects that requires the use of both boards. These could include a smart home, or smart jukebox among many other projects.

Edit Text Files on a Raspberry Pi

Learning to edit text files on the Raspberry Pi is an important first step.

In this guide, we will look at how you can edit text files on the Raspberry Pi. You will learn to view text files, edit it from the command line, open text files in the Text Editor from the command line, and use Nano. While a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ and its power supply is used here, this guide will work for the other Raspberry Pi boards, too.

By doing so, this will enable you to advance onto further projects.

Bluetooth Audio with Raspberry Pi

One of the best features on the newer models of the Raspberry Pi such as the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ and Pi Zero W, is its on-board bluetooth capability.

In this guide, we will learn to connect the Raspberry Pi to a portable bluetooth speaker and play music from it! This guide will work for any bluetooth-enabled Raspberry Pi board. For the older models, a USB to Bluetooth Dongle can be used.

After this is done, you will be able to play music wirelessly from your Raspberry Pi.

Create a HTPC Media Centre

Having an all-in-one home theatre PC media centre can be convenient and useful.

Why not create one with a Raspberry Pi? In this guide, you will learn how to turn your Raspberry Pi into a media centre! What's more, if you are new to the Raspberry Pi, it is a simple and easy project you can start on!

After this, you will be able to connect it to a television or monitor screen and play video files or streams with it.

Get Started with Retro Gaming on Raspberry Pi

Whether you're just curious, an avid gamer, or feeling nostalgic for old-school games, the setup involved with playing retro games has got a lot easier over the years! 

This guide will show you how to set up Lakka, a light-weight and popular emulation OS. To do so, we will be using a NOOBS microSD Card and a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+. It will work for other Raspberry Pi boards as well. 

Complete this guide to get started with retro gaming on the Raspberry Pi. You could go on further to create a handheld retro gaming device or print a fancy case for your Raspberry Pi reminiscent of the SNES!

Use the Sense HAT Emulator in Raspbian

The Sense HAT is a very useful piece of Raspberry Pi hardware. It adds a variety of sensors such as a gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer, temperature sensor, barometric pressure sensor, and humidity sensor. If you've ever wanted to try your hands on coding with one, you don't actually need the Sense HAT itself!

In this guide, you will learn how to program the Sense HAT and run it in the Sense HAT emulator on Raspbian. We will use a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, although it will work for the other Raspberry Pi boards too. 

After doing so, you may wish to get an actual physical Sense HAT and you will be able to program it with ease!

Set Up VNC on Raspberry Pi

Sometimes, you'll want to be able to access your Raspberry Pi remotely. 

With VNC built into Raspbian, you can! In this guide, you will learn how to set up RealVNC on the Raspberry Pi and access your Raspberry Pi remotely on the Mac OS. That said, this will also work for Windows or Linux operating systems as there are RealVNC clients for them as well. 

The completion of this guide will enable you to access your Raspberry Pi remotely for future projects.

Run Android on Raspberry Pi

Emteria.OS is the first proper Android release for the Raspberry Pi. Though there is already the RTAndroid, an older solution, Emteria.OS is a full build of Android, and you can get it for free to use as an individual.

In this guide, you will learn to use Emteria.OS to get Android running on your Raspberry Pi, and download Android apps on it.

Completing this guide will enable you to use the Android operating system on the Raspberry Pi in your future projects!

Create a File Server using Samba

If you've ever wanted to set up a file server, this guide is for you. 

You will learn how to use Samba to turn your Raspberry Pi into a local file server for your network. 

Once you have set it up, you can use your newly created file server on all other computers on your network and have a convenient place to store everything you want to share with housemates, friends or family.

Use a Push Button with Raspberry Pi

Push buttons are an essential component in many Raspberry Pi projects and have many uses. 

In this guide, we will connect a momentary push button to a Raspberry Pi and program it using the GPIO Zero library. Upon button press, it will print out the words, "Button has been pressed!"

After completing this guide, you will have gained a basic understanding of how to wire up and program push buttons with the Raspberry Pi.

Use Analogue Sensors with Raspberry Pi

While the Raspberry Pi can control digital inputs and outputs, what if you wanted to read analog signals? That's when analog to digital (ADC) converters come in the picture.

In this guide, we'll connect up an Analogue to Digital Converter (the MCP3008) to the Raspberry Pi, and then connect a light dependent resistor (LDR) or light sensor to it. We will then program it to read and output values from the LDR.

After completing this guide, feel free to connect other analogue sensors to your Raspberry Pi!

Connect a Temperature and Humidity Sensor with Raspberry Pi

The DHT22 sensor is a useful little component that is ideal if you require reading the temperature or humidity of your surroundings. It has a chip inside that does analogue to digital conversion.

In this guide, you will learn to connect a DHT22 to a Raspberry Pi on a breadboard.
