Event Description
The Raspberry Pi is a “single board computer” (or “SBC”) which runs the Linux operating system. While it can be used as an inexpensive desktop computer, it’s also useful as a media player, arcade device, and other custom purposes. We’ll look at some sample projects and then get hands-on with using a Raspberry Pi. Concepts & Objectives Learn the basics of the Raspberry Pi computing platform. Learn about the hardware and software it uses. Materials and Tools For the class we will supply you with a Raspberry Pi SBC, keyboard, mouse, and display. We’ll also explore wiring other devices to the Raspberry Pi. (Students are not required to bring a computer, but it is strongly encouraged.)
