Saturday Raspberry Jam Hackspace Meeting (1st Sat of month)

  • April 6, 2013 · 1:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Some things we  do:

  • Quick intro to Jam, people in the room and their projects
  • Python clinic (2:30)
  • Setting up a flash disk image
  • LCD options for the RasPi
  • Using the Pi with a laptop -- avoid carrying a screen & keybaord. ssh, internet connection sharing, X tunnels, connection to the GPIO for console access
  • Options for for cases and 3D Case printing

The actual content will be driven by what people what to do on the day and the constraints of time. Please feel free to bring along any projects you are working on.

Important notes:

  1. If you do not have a RasPi yet please feel free bring a flash card (4 Gb SD card, ideally class 6) and you can probably have a play on a borrowed RasPi unit.
  2. Please bring a laptop and Ethernet cable if you have one. We only have one spare screen / keyboard / mouse.
  3. CCHS can sell you a 3D printed cases for $8.
  4. May have some 3.3V USB-to-Serial cables for sale ($18), which provide serial console access (via your laptop).

    Thanks to the tall guy who gave me the info that the Jaycar Wi-Fi dongle $19.95 Digitech USB 2.0 Wireless Dongle P[masked] Plugged it in and it worked straight away on the Raspbian OS. It uses the Realtec RTL8188CUS chip.

    1st meetup for me will back up what Mike said like to see the younger generation. Living in the country it was nice to get out for a chat. Early days for me only had Pi 2 weeks.

    Has anyone made their own add-on boards for RPi using the GPIO?
