Learn to Cook on the Beaglebone Black

With dozens of how-tos, the book kicks off with basic steps for setting up and running the BeagleBone Black for the first time, from connecting the necessary hardware and using the command line with Linux commands to installing new software and controlling your system remotely. Following these recipes, more advanced examples take you through scripting, debugging, and working with software source files, eventually working with the Linux kernel.


Subsequently, you will learn how to exploit the board’s real-time functions, the Programmable Real-time Units, or PRUs. Next, we look at methods for using sound and video with the system before marching forward into an exploration of recipes for building Internet of Things projects. Finally, the book finishes with a dramatic arc into outer space, when you explore ways to build projects for tracking and monitoring satellites.


The book is now available at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.
