About the Author:

In the summer of 1972, Richard Golden sat in the computer lab at SUNY Fredonia and completed his first CAI tutorial for programming in APL. He was nine years old. Most of the programming that he has done since then has been in Algol-based languages like PL/I, FORTRAN, BASIC, Pascal, C, C++, C#, and Java. He occasionally writes code in languages like APL, FORTH, LISP, and Scheme. He has championed distributed computing, scripting languages, SOA, browser applications, CMS, ESBs, web services, nosql, and map-reduce; top down structured approach, UML, use cases, XP - extreme programming, iterative development, and agile development. And he is still moving forward. As he approaches his fortieth year as a programmer, software architect, and product manager - a career that has spanned eighty percent of his life - he is excited to share his experiences with the Raspberry Pi.

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into a TV and a keyboard. It's a capable little PC which 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 Networking Cookbook is a book full of practical and engaging content, and can either be read from cover to cover or treated as an essential reference companion to the user's Raspberry Pi. The book will show how to create a network fileserver for sharing documents, music, and videos. It provides information on hosting a web portal, collaboration wiki, or even a user's own wireless access point.

With the help of this book, readers can get started with the Internet of Things (IoT). They will learn to discover how to configure and secure their Raspberry Pi device. The book further provides useful information on enabling remote access both to and from other computers, using a Raspberry Pi for secured sharing of documents and files, deploying a web server, and building a user's own wireless access point and firewall.

Table of Contents for the book :

Chapter 1: Installation and Setup
Chapter 2: Administration
Chapter 3: Maintenance
Chapter 4: File Sharing
Chapter 5: Advanced Networking

Written in an accessible yet practical manner, Raspberry Pi Networking Cookbook is the perfect companion guide for the ARM GNU/Linux box.
