About the Author:

Stefan Sjogelid grew up in 1980s Sweden, getting hooked on 8-bit consoles, Amigas, and BBSs. With a background in system and network administration, he packed his bags for Southeast Asia and continued to work in IT for many years, before love and a magic 8-ball told him to seek new opportunities in Canada. The Raspberry Pi is the latest gadget to grab Stefan’s attention, and after much tinkering and learning a great deal about the unique properties of the Pi, he launched the PiLFS website, which teaches readers how to build their own GNU/Linux distribution and applications that are particularly useful on the Raspberry Pi.

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into a TV and keyboard. It’s a capable little PC that can be used for many of the things that any desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing, and games. It also plays high-definition video.

Raspberry Pi for Secret Agents starts out with the initial setup of Raspberry Pi, then guides readers through a number of pranks and Secret Agent techniques, before showing the reader how to apply these techniques to the real world.

With this book, readers will learn how to configure their operating system for maximum mischief before exploring the audio, video, and Wi-Fi projects. They will learn how to record, listen, or talk to people from a distance, and how to modulate their voice as well. They will even be able to plug in their webcam and set up a motion detector with an alarm, or find out what other computers on their Wi-Fi network are up to. Once they master these techniques, they can combine them with a battery pack and GPS for the ultimate off-road spy kit.

Raspberry Pi for Secret Agents is for all the mischievous Raspberry Pi owners who’d like to see their computer transform into a fun spy gadget to be used in a series of practical pranks and projects. No previous skills are required to follow along, and even if readers are completely new to Linux, they will pick up much of the basics in no time. More information about the book can be found on the Packt book web-page.
