Raspberry Pi for Arduino Users

Leverage your Arduino skills in the Raspberry Pi world and see how to cross the two platforms into sophisticated programs.

The Arduino and Raspberry Pi communities overlap more than you might think. Arduinos can be expanded to have network capabilities with a variety of “shields,” all of which increase the cost and complexity of the system. By contrast, Raspberry Pis all run Linux, which is a very network-competent platform. The newest Pi, the Raspberry Pi Zero W, is WiFi and Bluetooth capable, and costs around $10 U.S. For network enabled gadgets, it makes far more sense to cross to the Raspberry PI platform, if only someone would make it easy to do. That’s what this book is about.

You’ll learn some survival level Linux system administration, so you know how to set the machine up and how to establish at least minimal security for your gadget. You”ll set up and learn the Geany IDE on your Pi, which is fairly similar to the Arduino IDE.

Where the two platforms overlap the most is the GPIO system. You’ll see that several projects use and explain the WiringPi system. This is is deliberately similar to the Arduino’s ‘Wiring’ functionality, which is how sketches interact with GPIO pins. You’ll learn the differences between the GPIO pins of the two devices, and how the Pi has some limitations on those pins that the Arduino does not. As a final project, in an effort to escape some of those limitations, you’ll attach an AtMEGA 328P to the Raspberry Pi and configure it as a real, 8MHz Arduino with the Arduino IDE running on the Pi, and learn how to have the two platforms communicate, giving you the best of both worlds.

What You’ll Learn

*

Establish security with Linux system administration
*

Set up the Apache webserver
*

Write CGI programs so other computers can connect to your Pi and pull data in from it.
*

Use C/C++ from Arduino sketches to write programs for the Pi

**Who This Book Is For **

The Arduino user who’s been through all the tutorials and is comfortable writing sketches and connecting hardware to their Arduino.

Rant: An Oral Biography of Buster Casey

EDITORIAL REVIEW: The *Rant Limited Edition*** **is specially packaged in a one-piece preprinted case, printed black, with the title created in spot gloss; a 4-color slipcase that matches the original jacket of the trade book; a 1/8″ ribbon marker; a signed tip-in sheet, speckled edges; and an exclusive 1300-word “Automotive Afterword” entitled “Recipes for Disasters” which is not available in print anywhere but only in this limited edition. **“Like most people I didn’t meet Rant Casey until after he was dead. That’s how it works for most celebrities: After they croak, their circle of friends just explodes…”***Rant* is the mind-bending new novel from Chuck Palahniuk, the literary provocateur responsible for such books as the generation-defining classic Fight Club and the pedal-to-the-metal horrorfest Haunted. It takes the form of an oral history of one Buster “Rant” Casey, who may or may not be the most efficient serial killer of our time. **“What ‘Typhoid Mary’ Mallon was to typhoid, what Gaetan Dugas was to AIDS, and Liu Jian Lun was to SARS, Buster Casey would become for rabies.” **A high-school rebel who always wins (and a childhood murderer?), Rant Casey escapes from his small hometown of Middleton for the big city. He becomes the leader of an urban demolition derby called Party Crashing. On appointed nights participants recognize each other by such designated car markings as “Just Married” toothpaste graffiti and then stalk and crash into each other. Rant Casey will die a spectacular highway death after which his friends gather testimony needed to build an oral history of his short, violent life. Their collected anecdotes explore the possibility that his saliva caused a silent urban plague of rabies and that he found a way to escape the prison house of linear time…**“The future you have, tomorrow, won’t be the same future you had, yesterday.”–Rant Casey**Expect hilarity, horror, and blazing insight into the desperate and surreal contemporary human condition as only Chuck Palahniuk can deliver it. He’s the postmillennial Jonathan Swift, the visionary to watch to learn what’s–uh-oh–coming next.

Ramses The Damned

** Ramses the Great, former pharaoh of Egypt, is reawakened by the elixir of life in Edwardian England. Now immortal with his bride-to-be, he is swept up in a fierce and deadly battle of wills and psyches against the once-great Queen Cleopatra. Ramses has reawakened Cleopatra with the same perilous elixir whose unworldly force brings the dead back to life. But as these ancient rulers defy one another in their quest to understand the powers of the strange elixir, they are haunted by a mysterious presence even older and more powerful than they, a figure drawn forth from the mists of history who possesses spectacular magical potions and tonics eight millennia old. This is a figure who ruled over an ancient kingdom stretching from the once-fertile earth of the Sahara to the far corners of the world, a queen with a supreme knowledge of the deepest origins of the elixir of life. She may be the only one who can make known to Ramses and Cleopatra the key to their immortality—and the secrets of the miraculous, unknowable, endless expanse of the universe.

Rainbows

Rainbows: Nature and Culture by Daniel MacCannell
The rainbow is a compelling spectacle in nature—a rare, evanescent, and beautiful bridge between subjective experience and objective reality—and no less remarkable as a cultural phenomenon. A symbol of the Left since the German Peasants’ War of the 1520s, it has been adopted by movements for gay rights, the environment, multiculturalism, and peace around the globe, and has inspired poets, artists, and writers including John Keats, Caspar David Friedrich, Edgar Allan Poe, and Nathaniel Hawthorne. In this book, the first of its kind, Daniel MacCannell offers an enlightening and instructive guide to the rainbow’s multicolored relationship with humanity. The scientific “discovery” of the rainbow is a remarkable tale, taking in ancient Greece and Rome, medieval Persia, and Islamic Spain. But even as we’ve studied rainbows, adopted their image, and penned odes to them for millennia, rainbows have also been regarded as ominous or even dangerous in myth and religion. In the twentieth century, the rainbow emerged as kitsch, arcing from the musical film version of *The Wizard of Oz* to 1980s sitcoms and children’s cartoons. Illustrated throughout in prismatic color, MacCannell’s *Rainbows *explores the full spectrum of rainbows’ nature and meaning, offering insight into what rainbows are and how they work, how we arrived at our current scientific understanding of the phenomenon, and how we have portrayed them in everything from myth to the arts, politics, and popular culture.

Rainbow six

Over the course of nine novels, **Tom Clancy**’s “genius for big, compelling plots” and his “natural narrative gift” (*The New York Times Magazine*) have mesmerized hundreds of millions of readers and established him as one of the preeminent storytellers of our time. *Rainbow Six*, however, goes beyond anything he has done before.
At its heart is John Clark, the ex-Navy SEAL of *Without Remorse*, well known from several of Clancy’s novels as a master of secret operational missions. Whether hunting warlords in Japan, druglords in Colombia, or nuclear terrorists in the United States, Clark is efficient and deadly, but even he has ghosts in his past, demons that must be exorcised. And nothing is more demonic than the peril he must face in *Rainbow Six*.
Newly named the head of an international task force dedicated to combating terrorism, Clark is looking forward to getting his teeth into a new mission, but the opportunities start coming thicker and faster than anyone could have expected: an incident at a Swiss bank, the kidnapping of an international trader in Germany, a terrible raid on an amusement park in Spain.
Each episode seems separate, discrete, yet the timing disturbs Clark. Is there a connection? Is he being tested? With the help of his close associates, executive officer Alistair Stanley and strike team leaders Domingo Chavez and Peter Covington, Clark tries to figure out where all this activity is heading, but there is no way to predict the real threat: a group of terrorists like none the world has ever encountered, a band of men and women so extreme that their success could literally mean the end of life on this earth as we know it.

Rage of a Demon King

“A massive, entertaining tale.”
—*Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel*
The Serpentwar rages on! In *Rage of a Demon King*—the spellbinding third installment in Raymond E. Feist’s masterful epic fantasy, The Serpentwar Saga—the imperiled realm of Midkemia confronts its most devastating horror, as a nightmare beyond imagining descends upon the war-torn land determined to devour and destroy. A terrible conflict reaches a breathtaking climax—a world-annihilating conflagration that pits serpent against man and magician against demon. *Rage of a Demon King *is Feist at his best, solidifying his standing along with Terry Goodkind, George R. R. Martin, and Terry Brooks, as the elite creators of epic sword and sorcery fantasy.

Rabbit, Run

The first book in his award-winning ‘Rabbit’ series, John Updike’s *Rabbit, Run* contains an afterword by the author in Penguin Modern Classics.
It’s 1959 and Harry ‘Rabbit’ Angstrom, one time high school sports superstar, is going nowhere. At twenty-six he is trapped in a second-rate existence – stuck with a fragile, alcoholic wife, a house full of overflowing ashtrays and discarded glasses, a young son and a futile job. With no way to fix things, he resolves to flee from his family and his home in Pennsylvania, beginning a thousand-mile journey that he hopes will free him from his mediocre life. Because, as he knows only too well, ‘after you’ve been first-rate at something, no matter what, it kind of takes the kick out of being second-rate’.
John Updike (1932-2009) was born in Shillington, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Harvard College in 1954, and spent a year at Oxford, England, at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art. From 1955 to 1957 he was a member of staff at *The New Yorker*. Updike was the author of twenty-one novels as well as numerous collections of short stories, poems and criticism, and is one of only three authors to win more than one Pulitzer Prize. His most famous works are the Harry ‘Rabbit’ Angstrom series, all of which are published in Penguin Modern Classics: R*abbit, Run* (1960), *Rabbit Redux* (1971), *Rabbit is Rich *(1981) and* Rabbit at Rest* (1990).
If you enjoyed *Rabbit, Run*, you might like Don DeLillo’s *Americana*, also available in Penguin Modern Classics.
‘It is sexy, in bad taste, violent and basically cynical. And good luck to it’
Angus Wilson, *Observer*
‘That special polish, that brilliance; Updike is among the best’
Malcolm Bradbury
‘Brilliant and poignant … By his compassion, clarity of insight, and crystal-bright rose, [Updike] makes Rabbit’s sorrow his and our own’
*Washington** Post*
