One of my favorite person Hanselman picked up a Raspberry Pi 3 recently for MarchIsForMakers. The Raspberry Pi 3 is a great starter computer for makers not just because it is faster than the Pi and Pi 2, but because it has Wifi built in! This makes setup and messing around a lot easier.
Here’s some great tutorials for getting started with the Raspberry Pi, Node, and Visual Studio Code.
- Visual Studio Code Jumpstart for Node.js Developers
- Right click on Windows folder and open with Visual Studio Code
- Using Visual Studio Code (via a File Share) with a Raspberry Pi (Raspbian)
