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

  • Nov 3, 2012 · 1:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This week we get to see @crennsmind's Pi based robot! w00t!

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
  • 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 have limited keyboard and mouse so please bring.
  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).

    Very impressed with the friendly, welcoming Raspberry Jammers I met at my first visit! A big thanks to all who organised the meeting.

    hi Matt, we're just completing some permit stuff, after which we'll be able to more publicly announce our address (less hassle for everyone). Very likely to be sorted out before the December Raspberry Jam.

      Do you know what model RPi you have? I've heard that the 512MB versions have a slightly smaller PCB than the originals. If so, I have one that almost fits my RPi (an older 256MB one) that may just fit it.

      Hi Stuart, I've got the newer 512MB version (Made in UK[masked]). I'll bring it along on Sat to the meet.

    Is there any interest a Python clinic this month?

    Other options include "Version Control with Git" or "Introduction to Relational Databases with SQLite3" or I can shut up :-)
