I am happy to announce
"Raspberry Pi Day" at Penguins Unbound Meeting APRIL 27th 2013!
This will be a whole day (9:00am to 5:00pm) dedicated to working with
and learning about the Raspberry Pi !
This will be hands-on, so bring your Raspberry Pi and follow along with
your own Raspberry Pi!
Here is the agenda so far:
There will be an intro "class" in the morning (9:30 to 11:30). With step-by-step to get you started. Followed by a Q & A time. So bring your Raspberry Pi and learn the basics in the morning.
For Lunch, I will order pizza for all who would like to go in on buying some pizza. You are also welcome to bring your own lunch or go somewhere else.
In the afternoon I hope to have different session on Raspberry Pi topics:
- XBMC on the Raspberry Pi
- Raspberry Pi Programming GPIO in C
- and more hopefully...
That is the plan so far!
