It will cover the main functional parts of the RPi3, what power supplies to get, hooking up a HDMI monitor keyboard and mouse, formatting and installing the Raspbian OS, initial setup and configuration, connecting to Ethernet or WiFi, browsing the internet, and a very short introduction to Libre Office. This will let you use the RPi3 as a useful workstation at home.

If you want the 7" touchscreen and case, Tanner Electronics stocks a couple of those at $70 for the screen and $19 for the case. You'll want to grab those early if you want to get them from Tanner's.

Links to purchase other parts will be listed below shortly.

Special Considerations and Warnings

You will need a minimum of a Raspberry Pi 3B or 3B+, a 8 or 16GB (or larger) microSD card, and a power supply. There will be a few standard monitors/keyboards/mice available, but bring your own if you can.
