NERP Tonite! Raspberry Pi Zero — $5

NERP is not exclusively Raspberry Pi, the small computer and embedded systems interest group at Pumping Station:One in Chicago. NERP meets every other Monday at 7pm at Pumping Station:One, 3519 N. Elston Ave. in Chicago.

Charles Kwiatkowski has worked in industry and academia since 1991. He enjoys learning and discussion on NERPish topics. If possible, he would live across the street from PS:One.

Tonight Charles will introduce us to the new Raspberry Pi Zero. The fun thing about following the small embedded market is the speed at which things change are changing. When the Basic Stamp was the only “accessible” microcontroller for hobbyists it cost $50. The Stamp was king of the hill for a decade. Things change faster now.

Comparisons between different embedded platforms is almost always apples and oranges, but price is the place people usually start. The RPi Zero’s retail price is $5. So there.
