Introduction to the Raspberry Pi

Please join us at a Framingham Makerspace sponsored "Introduction to the Raspberry Pi". If you are curious about this credit card size computer, this is the right place to be. This is first in a series of training sessions on the Raspberry Pi. Whether you own one, want to see one in action or have a project in mind, we will cover the basics from the ground up. We will review the hardware, software and provide some demos of already build projects.

Space is limited so you MUST RSVP.

Check out the segment on our Raspberry Pi night that aired on Framingham Public Access Channel.  The segment starts 10:34 into the video.

    I (Saman Amighi) will be teaching the class on Tuesday night (11/12) at the Framingham Main Library. Please visit this link (http://www.framinghamlibrary.or...­ St Entrance) for parking restrictions. The class will be in J Room in the basement (kids area). I will email details tonight. Please feel free to bring your Raspberry PI and SD Card. Ensure you have it clearly labeled and in a container. However, there will be many hands-on items in the class. Also, feel free to email me directly if you would like anything specific covered. We will be covering the Pi itself, how to purchase it, SD card and initial boot up. We will then do some hands-on sessions and conclude with a Q&A. Thank you, Saman

      The Framingham main library is within walking distance of the Framingham commuter line. 5:35 train gets you to the library at 6:30, 5 PM might be better. Going back there is an 8:36. so you would have to leave a bit early from the class. Hope this helps.
