Introduction to the Raspberry Pi

UPDATE:  We are meeting in the MPR room at Microsoft.  It is the building on the left, all the way at the back!

Title: Introduction to the Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry PI is a fascinating single board computer that is small, affordable and flexible.  This little computer has been very popular in education and maker communities. This presentation will cover the basics of a Raspberry PI and highlight some interesting projects that makers have done with it.  The following projects will be demonstrated:

MAME Gaming Console

Multi-room audio system

Media System (XBMC)

Build Notification

Doorbell Notification

If you have a project you would like to showcase please bring it along and share with the group

    Great presentation, Mike. I've been curious about just what you could do with a Raspberry Pi, and you did an excellent job answering that question. Thanks!

    I wanted to mention I totally forgot to do the "Show your cool project" at the end of the meeting. If you brought a cool project to the meeting I apologize for forgetting to let you have a chance to show it off. I know James Wolf brought in his cool project and you guys should check it out on his blog. If anyone else brought something please post a link to your project. I know I sure would like to see them. Thanks again for every one that showed up!! I will pass the powerpoint and some github repos onto Matt for posting when I get a chance.
