Detailed Analysis

CourseMarks Score®

9.7 / 10

CourseMarks Score® helps students to find the best classes. We aggregate 18 factors, including freshness, student feedback and content diversity.

Freshness Score

10.0 / 10
This course was last updated on 3/2021.

Course content can become outdated quite quickly. After analysing 71,530 courses, we found that the highest rated courses are updated every year. If a course has not been updated for more than 2 years, you should carefully evaluate the course before enrolling.

Student Feedback

9.2 / 10
We analyzed factors such as the rating (4.7/5) and the ratio between the number of reviews and the number of students, which is a great signal of student commitment.

New courses are hard to evaluate because there are no or just a few student ratings, but Student Feedback Score helps you find great courses even with fewer reviews.

Content Score

9.2 / 10
Video Score: 8.1 / 10
The course includes 3h 48m video content. Courses with more videos usually have a higher average rating. We have found that the sweet spot is 16 hours of video, which is long enough to teach a topic comprehensively, but not overwhelming. Courses over 16 hours of video gets the maximum score.
Detail Score: 9.5 / 10

The top online course contains a detailed description of the course, what you will learn and also a detailed description about the instructor.

Extra Content Score: 9.9 / 10

Description

This course is specifically tailored to get you jump-started for the newest family member of the Raspberry Pi family: The Raspberry Pi Pico. After a short soldering session and software installation for your operating system (we show it in Windows and Linux), we immediately dive into practical topics such as
•Timers and Counters
•Pulse Width Modulation
•Interrupts
•Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC)
•Communication Protocols (SPI, I2C/TWI, UART)
•How to connect other peripheries, sensors, and actuators (Example: Arduino) to the Raspberry Pi Pico?
First, each topic explains briefly, what the functionality does and how it works. That is followed by practical examples, tips and tricks, and exercises to try out the topic by yourself. To maximize the take-away from the course, the exercises provide hints and tips, in case you get stuck somewhere. If nothing works, even the solutions in well documented source code are provided for you to try and to modify.
In addition, we show practical examples, how to connect periphery to the Raspberry Pi Pico, while at the same time protect it against overvoltage, and how to use it with larger electrical components such as motors, so that you can enjoy your Raspberry Pi Pico as long as possible.
This course follows the motto: “Learning by Doing”. So you will require a few hardware components to complete the course successfully. The list is mentioned in the first lecture, which is available for free. In addition, it is assumed that an enrolled student already has a bit of Python programming experience and knows how to write functions, loops, and how to import modules. If you already know any other programming language, you will feel also comfortable here and pick up Python on the fly.
This course is designed specifically for the Raspberry Pi Pico and offers everything in one single place. After completing this course, the successful student will have the experience to plan and implement own projects for the Raspberry Pi Pico and learned the fundamentals of omnipresent peripheries encountered in the domain of embedded systems.

Requirements

• A fundamental knowledge about Python (Loops, Functions)Fundamental knowledge about breadboards and wiring

You will learn

✓ Raspberry Pi Pico and MicroPython
✓ Programming in Windows and Linux using Thonny (a free IDE)
✓ Communication Protocols of the Raspberry Pi Pico
✓ Internal Peripheries of the Raspberry Pi Pico
✓ Introduction into Soldering
✓ How to connect the Raspberry Pi Pico to other Periphery (e.g. Arduino)

This course is for

• Python Developers curious to try out the novel Raspberry Pi Pico
• Entrepreneurs who want to lauch a product or start-up

How much does the Jumpstart the Raspberry Pi Pico course cost? Is it worth it?

The course costs $11.99. And currently there is a 60% discount on the original price of the course, which was $29.99. So you save $18 if you enroll the course now.

Does the Jumpstart the Raspberry Pi Pico course have a money back guarantee or refund policy?

YES, Jumpstart the Raspberry Pi Pico has a 30-day money back guarantee. The 30-day refund policy is designed to allow students to study without risk.

Are there any SCHOLARSHIPS for this course?

Currently we could not find a scholarship for the Jumpstart the Raspberry Pi Pico course, but there is a $18 discount from the original price ($29.99). So the current price is just $11.99.

Researcher at Barcelona Supercomuting Center
In my capacity as assistant and adjunct professor at various institutes in India and Singapore, I gained extensive experience how to communicate theoretical concepts. My approach is more practically oriented and I follow the principle: Learning by doing.Due to my research, I became an expert in cybersecurity with significant practical experience in embedded systems, processor architectures, and FPGAs.Some successful projects in those areas:Embedded Systems: Battery powered devices have been deployed in Antarctica to monitor nesting behaviors. Such harsh environments are challenging in terms of components, but especially the limited power resources. The software needed to be highly optimized to squeeze every bit out of those batteries to maximize its operational lifetime.Processor Architectures: Side-channel attacks are attacks which use a involuntary channels to leak information. Those channels are often unavoidable consequences of computations and include electromagnetic emission or power consumption of the processor. In this project the aim is to harden the processor against side-channel attacks by modifying the processor itself and to make the compiler side-channel aware. The processor that has been used for this project is the new RISC-V.FPGAs: Those devices are perfect for machine learning (ML) algorithms due to their spatial (parallel) computation capabilities. While interference latencies are usually reduced by using GPUs, those processors have a power budget that is too high for embedded systems. FPGAs offer a flexible alternative, however the data interface to load weights for the neurons is limited. In this project, new algorithms and symmetries are developed to achieve high accuracy and throughput.
