What is Raspberry Pi?
Raspberry Pi is a series of small single-board computers developed in the United Kingdom by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. A low-cost, credit-card-sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. The Raspberry Pi project leaned towards promoting teaching introductory computer science in schools and developing countries and learning how to program in languages like Scratch and Python.
The Raspberry Pi is a powerful tool for artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). Its processing capabilities, matched with a small form factor and low power requirements, make it an excellent choice for smart robotics and embedded projects.

Learn at home:
Raspberry Pi 400 costs £95 with a mouse and cables, which help young people affected by the pandemic to have cheap computing to study from home. Raspberry Pi Foundation runs many coding projects guided step by step targeting young people to improve their tech skills.
Code Club is a program run by the Raspberry Pi Foundation to Put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world. It has free Code Clubs for 9 to 13 years to learn and share ideas. Also, Raspberry can be used to learn many programming languages like python, learn machine language, and artificial intelligence.
Raspberry Pi Operating system:
Raspberry Pi OS:
Raspberry Pi OS is the official operating system for all models of the Raspberry Pi. Use Raspberry Pi Imager for an easy way to install Raspberry Pi OS and other operating systems to an SD card ready to use with your Raspberry Pi:
Raspberry Pi Imager for Windows
Raspberry Pi Imager for macOS
Raspberry Pi Imager for Ubuntu
Raspberry Pi Desktop (for PC and Mac):
Debian with Raspberry Pi Desktop is the Foundation’s operating system for PC and Mac. You can create a live disc, run it on a virtual machine, or even install it on your computer.
Raspberry Pi Desktop comes pre-installed with plenty of software for education, programming, and general use, including Python, Scratch, Sonic Pi, Java, and more.
