[PDF] Linux for Makers: Understanding the Operating System That Runs Raspberry Pi and Other Maker SBCs Free Download
Linux for Makers
Linux is a powerful open-source operating system that has been around for many years and is widely used for running servers and websites. But most students and Makers encounter it for the first time when they are working on projects with their Raspberry Pi or similar single-board computers (SBCs) such as BeagleBone Black or Intel Galileo. Linux for Makers is the first book that explains the Linux operating system specifically for Makers, as opposed to programmers and administrators. By gaining a deeper understanding of Linux, Makers can add another useful tool to their kit that will help them build their projects more easily.
Written with the Maker in mind, this book will focus mostly on Rasbian running on the Raspberry Pi as it is the most prolific in the ecosystem today. However most of the topics covered will apply broadly to other Linux distributions and will be called out when they may differ. Many times users cut and paste from a website tutorial into the Linux command line without understanding what they are actually doing only to be frustrated when they want to modify or tweak something to suit their needs. Also, many Makers shy away from using the Raspberry Pi or similar board because they feel Linux is too foreign and they think using a command line will be more difficult than using a GUI. This book aims to overcome those fears and provide a foundation for further learning and exploration. To that end, this book will focus on the basic principles that a Maker would need to know as opposed to other resources that go into detail that is not particularly relevant to building projects.

Three Questions for Aaron Newcomb
For whom is your book written?
It’s specifically aimed at Makers who want to better understand the single board computers that are becoming so popular with hobbyists and innovators today—like the Raspberry Pi, Beagle Bone, Onion Omega, even some high-level Arduinos. But the book is also a great introduction for anyone who is interested in learning about how to use Linux, the fastest-growing operating system on the planet.
What need does it fulfill for those readers?
Too often, makers new to Raspberry Pi projects simply follow a list of instructions on some website that don’t fully explain what each instruction actually does. This book makes clear the computing aspect of how and why your Raspberry Pi is doing the things it’s doing. In addition, it demystifies the Linux command line, enabling a powerful new tool for Makers to use when building their projects.
What’s the most exciting thing happening with Linux?
The Internet of Things is meeting up with ‘deep learning’—artificial intelligence that only exists in the Cloud. To really merge the two successfully, and to give your gadget a global intelligence, the person who knows Linux is going to find him or herself far ahead of the others.
