Setting up my Raspberry Pi 3

Today is my first day as the owner of a dinky little Raspberry Pi 3!

I ordered it on a bit of a whim to be honest. I had heard about Raspberry Pi and the work that they were doing with schools, teaching the next generation to code.

I’m eager to develop my skills, and now that I’ve got a bit of time on my hands, I thought now was the time to dive in and see what it’s all about.

Getting started with my Raspberry Pi

I have a working knowledge of technology, but even for those who haven’t had much experience working with tech in the past, unboxing it and putting it in it’s case (which came with the starter kit) won’t be too much trouble at all.

Then, it was simply a matter of connecting my monitor, keyboard and mouse, and inserting the Micro SD card, which came pre-loaded with the Raspberry Pi OS, and I was good to go.

Before I knew it, everything had booted up, and I was browsing the web in no time! In fact, I’m writing this blog post using my Raspberry Pi, and if I didn’t know this was powered by a tiny little box, then I’d never have guessed I wasn’t on a normal PC, laptop or tablet.
