Intro To Raspberry Pi 2! says
Raspberry Pi 2 is a powerful mini-computer used in many interactive works. Using the RPi2, you will learn to write code in Python, scrape data from common web sources, and use sensors and actuators with the board. What's the class project? Make your bedroom window blinds slowly open when your alarm goes off on your phone.

These workshops build upon each other. Session one involves the setup of the RPi2, while session two covers coding in Python, building external circuitry, and connecting RPi2 to various data sources on the interwebs. In the final session, students will finish their class project "kinetic alarm clock" with the guidance of the instructor.
