What is Raspberry Pi ?

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of promoting the teaching of basic computer science in schools.

Raspberry pi is designed first for the educational purpose only. But now a days people are using it as mining hardware for bitcoin and using it in to make your simple tv into smart tv, it is also being used in microwave to operate it. Raspberry pi is a small killer brain that can do many things. Demand of raspberry pi is more now as it breaks the market of apple.Raspberry pi is now popular device to make compute and other solving tasks.


What it Includes ?

The Raspberry Pi has a Broadcom BCM2835 system on a chip (SoC), which includes an ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz processor, VideoCore IV GPU, and was originally shipped with 256 megabytes of RAM, later upgraded to 512 MB. It does not include a built-in hard disk or solid-state drive, but uses an SD card for booting and persistent storage. 

What is it Provides ?

The Foundation provides Debian and Arch Linux ARM distributions for download. Tools are available for Python as the main programming language.
