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

  • January 5, 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).

    Very informative. I am just about to order my Raspberry Pi, now having the confidence that I can get assistance from the group if I need it.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
