Coder Is A Simple Way To Code On The Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi is great for all kinds of multimedia projects, but its original purpose was for education. Google's new Coder image for the Raspberry Pi embraces that and offers a place to write code and host a server on the Pi.

Coder is a custom image for your Raspberry Pi. So, you'll download the installer, drop it onto an SD card, and then boot up your Pi. When it's done, you're greeted with a Chrome window where you can start writing HTML, CSS or Javascript in a distraction-free environment. You can then easily share those programs with anyone else who can connect to your server.

      The whole point of the Pi is to enable people to learn about computers when they can't afford one. The Pi provides a very low cost platform which they can use to learn.
