Coding the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+

The recent Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ launch adds more processing power, graphical performance and networking capabilities to the Raspberry Pi family. Consequentlyy, it's an ideal platform for Linux-derived Raspbian Stretch operating system.

And, as both Python and Java are preinstalled on Raspbian Stretch, it's a cost effective way to dive into software programming.

You could begin your Python coding journey with my free in-depth Learn Python on the Raspberry Pi series of posts.

Or learn the basics of the Java programming language with tools like BlueJ (maybe using the BlueJ Learning Videos), or the Greenfoot IDE or Dr Java.

This coding knowledge can then be employed to customise the hackable Raspberry Pi Minecraft edition using Python code or with Java uamd BlueJ.
