At least once in our lives, we've all considered what it would be like to build our own robot, a smart and handy automaton that could make our day-to-day just a little bit easier. Of course, for most of us, that thought stops there, as the prospect of going to school for a computer science or electrical engineering degree scares us right back into reality. However, we live in an age where fields like robotics and computer programming are becoming much more accessible, partly due to the arrival of Raspberry Pi.

For the uninitiated, Raspberry Pi is a tiny, credit-card sized computer that is capable of doing everything a regular desktop can do, like program, surf the web, play music, and more. Plus, Raspberry Pi is also capable of working with other Internet of Things (IoT) devices, allowing you to create complex networks of sensors, robots, cameras, and more, and all without slogging through a whole four years of university.

So, if you'd like to explore what's possible with this user-friendly platform, the Raspberry Pi Mastery Bundle can give you the guidance to get started and create your own projects, and it's on sale for over 90 percent off the usual price.

This collection features eight courses, all covering unique concepts and applications of the Raspberry Pi platform. Here's what you'll learn in each:

Automation with Raspberry Pi Zero

This course will instill you with a fundamental knowledge of automation with Raspberry Pi Zero. You'll learn how to control AC appliances using a relay and Python programming. You'll even create projects, like an automated process to water plants when their moisture is low.

Introduction to Raspberry Pi

This introductory course will have you building a fully functional computer running on the Raspbian operating system, and you'll write a Python program to create a simple number guessing game.

Hardware Projects Using Raspberry Pi

In this course, you'll learn three complete hardware projects as you understand how to perform physical computing with the Raspberry Pi, including creating a walkie-talkie, light detector mechanism, and motion sensor.

Bitcoin Mining Using Raspberry Pi

As its name suggests, this course will show you how to turn your Raspberry Pi into a Bitcoin miner. You'll discover how to set up an account for Bitcoin mining, sync your wallet to it, and walk through the hardware components required for a Bitcoin mining setup.

Raspberry Pi Robotics

If you're looking to finally build your own robot, this course has you covered. Jump in, and you'll explore the fundamentals of robotics with Raspberry Pi while learning how to build and operate your own automaton.

Internet of Things Automation Using Raspberry Pi 2

Let this course be your first foray into IoT. You'll get hands-on training as you learn how to measure water temperature by using Raspberry Pi by coding and connecting multiple sensors.

Home Automation in 48 Hours Without Coding

In this course, you'll learn how to build IoT projects and remotely control home appliances without coding. Using Cayenne, the world's only drag-and-drop IoT project builder, you'll learn how to interface sensors and actuators and control different home appliances remotely.

Build Your Own ArmBot Step By Step Using Raspberry Pi Zero

With this training, you'll discover how a simple servo motor can be used to create a robotic arm, allowing you to build your own ArmBot from scratch.

The Raspberry Pi Mastery Bundle normally retails for $865, but you can get it on sale today for $34, saving more than 90 percent off the usual price.
