Raspberry Pi hands-on workshop

Not Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi hands-on workshop

 

NERP is Not Exclusively Raspberry Pi, but Monday, 1/28, we’ll be all Raspberry.

Pumping Station:One and NERP are excited to be included in Adafruit Industries community grants of cool hardware for the Raspberry Pi.  Adafruit is sending us a care package of Raspberry Pi gear we can use to make projects. The exact contents of the package will be a surprise.

On Monday Jan. 28th at 7pm, we’ll get into the swing of making cool Pi things by doing a hands-on workshop on basic controlling and sensing with the Pi. Bring your Pi, keyboard, monitor, etc, and try out a couple of demo projects from learn.adafruit.com . The parts cost should be about zero since the projects don’t require much external hardware. PS:One’s Electronics area will provide tools and parts to get started.

We’ll learn how to turn on a simple LED (or anything else) using Python. Then we’ll explore two example projects on learn.adafruit.com :

As always, if you have a NERP related project that you’d like to share, bring
it along!

NERP meets at 7pm 1/28/13 at Pumping Station:One, 3519 N. Elston Ave. in Chicago. NERP is free and open to the public.
