Victoria Computer Club
85A Burnside Rd West (at Wascana), Victoria, BC
Once your SD card is set up and the Pi booted, a powerful but complex command-line world lies behind the deceptively-easy graphical desktop interface. Raspbian is a special version of Debian Linux modified to run efficiently on the Raspberry Pi.
Debian Linux is an extremely flexible operating system, but its innate complexity can be daunting for the new user. In this meeting, our experienced Linux NOOBY (yes, there is such a status — it’s all relative!) Stuart Hertzog will lead you gently into using the Linux command line interface, which you will need to understand to get the full potential of using the Pi (and Others) in your projects.
- A Short History of Unix and its Command Line Interface ( CLI)
- Some Useful Raspbian Commands
- The nano text editor
- Learn To Love The Command Line – free ebook from Magpi Magazine
