Raspberry Pi Night - May Meeting - Agenda - Raspi Arduino Crossover

  • May 28, 2014 · 7:00 PM

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.

For those unfamiliar with the Raspberry Pi, here is a link

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

    For the May session, we are thinking a full ardunio programming class. Maybe 3 hours minimum. Or may be a crossover ardunio raspi class, leading into a June arduino programming class. Please post your comments. As of now, the vote (my own) to do arduino programming with a hint of raspi programming. However, the more I think about it, a 50-50 mix would be better. Please comment.

    Per the event description, might I suggest as a topic: using your Raspberry Pi to host your own blog?

    That's what I'm trying to learn now. Since the event is still 5 1/2 weeks out there's a chance I may have figured it out by then, but I'm sure I could do with extra advice as well. (And hopefully others would find it useful?)

    Also, what should I plan to bring to the event? Just my Raspberry Pi (with SD card and power source), or should I plan to bring extra peripherals too: keyboard, mouse, monitor? Super excited!

      Hi Chris, glad you have join our Makerspace and raspi night. Second question first, you can bring your pi, laptop, cables. I usually have everything else. The less monitors the better :) extra SD card might be good.

      First question: I have hosted wordpress on a cent os host. There is a "5 min install" available. Try that on your pi and you should be up and running. To get to your raspi, it needs to be on the internet, reverse DNS, fully secured, etc. that is a lot of work and requires some expertise. All of it is can be googled
