I have no experience with the Raspberry Pi system, but I have heard a lot of good things about it. My son is interested in learning to code (any kind of coding at this point), and I am wondering if you guys think the system would be a good starting point for this? Obviously, I realize there would some set up involved with the actual computer, but I think he would like that aspect of the system as well.

Can anyone give me their thoughts on how easy the Raspberry Pi system would be for a middle schooler to use and set up and if you think it would help them learn some aspects of coding?

    Curiously, that's the exact reason why the Raspberry Pi exists.

    This is not a suitable question for this site. Perhaps have a look at raspberrypi.org or ask on raspberrypi.org/forums

    This question is off-topic, and you will find hundreds, if not thousands, of relevant articles. What is a "middle schooler"?
