The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized, single-board computer (which is a complete computer built on a single circuit board, with microprocessor(s), memory, input/output (I/O) and other features required of a functional computer) developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of promoting the teaching of basic computer science in schools.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation provides open source operating system (OS) which is stored on the SD card. Tools are available for Python as the main programming language, a screen, power supply and SD card with an OS uploaded are all you need to get started! It’s straightforward to replace the root partition on the SD card with another ARM Linux distribution if you want to use another OS, some are listed below. There are many unique and innovative projects that the Raspberry Pi can be used to create.

You can watch a video about Raspberry Pi HERE and can download
