  1. Review by David verified purchaser

    Opened up this kit to find a b9k and a lolly shop bag full of goodies. (Don't eat the rainbow licorice though!)
    The book is well written and introduces the reader to the Raspberry Pi and basic hardware interfacing.
    This was bought to give to a friend's younglings who are interested in computers but I may just have to buy a kit for myself. Looks like a fun way to learn computers. (Posted on 20/08/2017)
