Raspberry Pi For Dummies sampler

Full chapter from Raspberry Pi For Dummies, introducing Scratch on the Raspberry Pi.
Raspberry Pi For Dummies by Sean McManus and Mike Cook shows how to get started with the Raspberry Pi, how to set it up, how to manage it using the Linux shell and desktop, how to create documents and edit photos using it, how to build a website using it, and how to use it to learn programming and electronics.

The book dedicates two chapters to Scratch. The first is an introduction to Scratch, taking you up to creating your first program. The second chapter explains how to make the space shoot-em-up Martian Attack (see project file below, and link below).
