This inexpensive computer can be programed by the widely recognized Xojo programming language.

This book “I Wish I Knew How to… Program Raspberry Pi 3B+ Electronics with Xojo” goes into the numerous programs that can be built to interact with many types of electronic gadgets. This book uses the latest Raspberry Pi 3B+ hardware with the newest version of the Stretch Operating System.
