For May 2014
The agenda will be Raspi<>Arduino crossover.
Following up on our headless Raspi meeting in April, we will discuss how to connect and use the Raspi as an Arduino programmer. I will have a few SD cards ready with INO and Arduino enviroment already built. This allows you to program, upload and serial connect to the Arduino. In combination with a serial cable, a USB hub, this can be a great debug tool for a self powered Arduino in the field. Having several Arduino's online talking to each other and the ability to see their serial output is very useful. A Raspi is not 100% required, but a Linux/Mac would work. However not Windows, that is why I have found the Raspi to be a good solution. I will do a 30-45 mins presentation on this topic. After that (or before), we can do free-form as we always do.
As usual, feel free to reach out to me for separate training classes. I know there are a few beginners that want to buy or setup their Raspi.
If you have a Raspberry Pi and want to get together with others to compare notes, swap ideas, etc. come to our meetup. Bring your Pi and show us what you're doing with it.
If you're curious about the Raspberry Pi and want to meet others who have one or are just interested in finding out more about them, come to our meetup.
In addition to sharing and helping each other Saman will test some of his Raspberry Pi class curriculum on us, so it's a great opportunity if you are new to the Raspberry Pi and want to learn more.
Location will be Framingham, MA. Address provided when you RSVP.
