Today, I am going to show you that how to use Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ V1.2 for the first time! I could buy this board after two years, when Raspberry Pi 3 had been announced, sorry for me being so late, but I'm thankful to my statement that I just found enough money to buy that board. The problem is that I can't find job to earn money.
