Our next meeting will be Tuesday, September 3rd, featuring our own Scott Pellegrino, discussing Raspberry Pi, the tiny computer taking the maker/hacker community by storm.
The Raspberry Pi is a low-cost credit card-sized computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. It was created specifically with the intention of aiding the teaching of basic computer science in schools. However, not only can you use it for education, a vibrant community of “MAKER”s has sprung up using the Raspberry Pi to do some really fun stuff, everything from growing tomatoes to brewing beer. Scott will go over- The hardware- basic installation and set up- what the Raspberry Pi is and what it is not- and last but not least Demos!!
