Once the cluster is built, its power has to be exploited by means of programs to run on it. So, Raspberry Pi Supercomputing and Scientific Programming teaches you to code the cluster with the MPI4PY library of Python 3. Along the way, you will learn the concepts of the Message Passing Interface (MPI) standards and will explore the fundamentals of parallel programming on your inexpensive cluster. This will make this book a great starting point for supercomputing enthusiasts who want to get started with parallel programming.
The book finishes with details of symbolic mathematics and scientific and numerical programming in Python, using SymPi, SciPy, NumPy, and Matplotlib. You’ll see how to process signals and images, carry out calculations using linear algebra, and visualize your results, all using Python code. With the power of a Raspberry Pi supercomputer at your fingertips, data-intensive scientific programming becomes a reality at home.
What You Will Learn Discover the essentials of supercomputing
Build a low-cost cluster of Raspberry Pis at home
Harness the power of parallel programming and the Message Passing Interface (MPI)
Use your Raspberry Pi for symbolic, numerical, and scientific programming
Who This Book Is For
Python 3 developers who seek the knowledge of parallel programming, Raspberry Pi enthusiasts, researchers, and the scientific Python community.
This book explores the important concepts in software testing and their implementation in Python 3 and shows you how to automate, organize, and execute unit tests for this language. This knowledge is often acquired by reading source code, manuals, and posting questions on community forums, which tends to be a slow and painful process.
Python Unit Test Automation will allow you to quickly ramp up your understanding of unit test libraries for Python 3 through the practical use of code examples and exercises. All of which makes this book a great resource for software developers and testers who want to get started with unit test automation in Python 3 and compare the differences with Python 2.
This short work is your must-have quick start guide to mastering the essential concepts of software testing in Python.
What You'll Learn:
Essential concepts in software testing
Various test automation libraries for Python, such as doctest, unittest, nose, nose2, and pytest
Test-driven development and best practices for test automation in Python
Code examples and exercises
Who This Book Is For:

Whether your new to Raspberry Pi, or an experienced maker, we think this Learning Path will inspire you and get your creative juices flowing!What You Will LearnDiscover an aweome range of Raspberry Pi projectsBridge the gap between software and hardware through your Pi and find out how to make an operating system interact with cameras and other hardwareFind out how to use your Raspberry Pi for gamingSecure your home with this tiny computer!Make science fiction a reality – build a walking robotIn Detail
Looking for inspiration for your next Raspberry Pi project? Not sure where to begin? This Learning Path is the perfect place to begin, providing you with an accessible yet comprehensive journey through Raspberry Pi. Following three modules, you'll soon be confident and prepared to get creative with your microcomputer.
Raspberry Pi by Example is the first module in this Learning Path – and it does exactly what it says. It doesn't just teach, it shows you how to go and build some awesome Raspberry Pi projects immediately. Build and play your own games with the Pi, build a complete Internet of Things home automation system that controls your house through Twitter... let your imagination run wild!
In the next module we'll look in more depth at building a home security system. You'll be using some of the skills you devoped through the first module, but apply them to something more intricate and impressive. Using a Linux based operating system as the foundations, you'll gradually build up an entire security infrastructure adding cameras, remote controls, and even intrusion alerts!
In the final module, we'll take you into the world of Raspberry Pi robotics. By the end of it, you'll have built a biped robot that can interact with its environment!
