WKS937: Introduction to Raspberry Pi
Class Number 842-31050

An Introduction to Raspberry Pi by Pete Soper of Splat Space

Raspberry Pi is an inexpensive, richly capable single board computer (SBC) designed for educational settings and excellent for a wide range of hobby activities. Featuring a modest speed ARM processor and a half gigabyte of RAM, it has interfaces for flash SD, USB, ethernet, HDMI graphics, audio, LCD panels, digital cameras, and direct digital I/O. The hardware works well with a highly capable port of Debian Linux and other operating systems as a general-purpose computing system that can as easily host your home web server or LAN engine as it can keep an eye on your thermostat or drive a cat food dispenser while you're away.

This presentation includes an overview of the Raspberry Pi via slides and demonstrations:

* Background/history

* Description

* Capabilities

* Development and developer community resources

* A collection of application examples

* Q&A

Members will receive $5 in store credit.
