Headless Raspberry Pi + Win a free RPi Zero W!

Published on: November 10, 2018

Welcome to the first Raspberry Pi tutorial! We're starting this series with a bang! With a Giveaway! To generate interest in the series, I'm premiering the tutorial below on YouTube on November 10, 2018 at 6 PM EST. At that point, you can enter the giveaway just by commeting on the video. You can comment either here on EasyProgramming.net or head on over to the YouTube video below and make a comment. The comment can be anything from "I want that Pi" to a suggestion for a new video. 

I'm testing out the new "premier" option on YouTube, please do give feedback on how you like it, if you don't like, how it can be improved, pretty much anything on your mind! 

Here are the minor entry rules:

  1. Only open to US residents (sorry, I will try to open it up internationally in the future)
  2. Comment anywhere in this video on YouTube or here on EasyProgramming.net 
  3. Optional: Mention what state you are from.
  4. That's all! 
  5. Updated entry rule: I'm setting an end date for entries so that I have time to pick winners and edit it into my next video. End date will be November 20, 2018 at 2 pm EST. Winners will be announced November 24, 2018 at 6 pm. Subscribe for notifications!

All Patrons (currently non-existent) on Patreon will get free entries to all drawing whether or not they comment. And I plan on giving more things away in the future!

Let's get to the video. In this tutorial, I show you how to set your Raspberry Pi as Headless, meaning, you don't need a keyboard, mouse, or video to access and configure your Pi. This will be extremely useful for future tutorials because I will simply refer to this video whenever I want you to set up a Pi and access it via SSH.

The wpa_supplicant.conf file would look something like this:

    ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev

	ssid="Your WIFI Name"
