NERP - Not Exclusively Raspberry Pi Message Board › NERP tonight -- Show Me the Money
NERP is Not Exclusively Raspberry Pi, the small computer interest group at Pumping Station:One in Chicago. NERP meets every other Monday at 7pm at Pumping Station:One, 3519 N. Elston Ave. in Chicago.
Tonight at NERP Justin T. Conroy will be talking about his project for mechanically receiving paper currency and depositing the money into a PS:1's member account. Justin will follow the data from its source at a bill acceptor through a system consisting of Arduino, Beaglebone, web transport, a django app, and filally a user's PS:1 member account.
Join us as Justin shares his thoughts on planning and execution of a complex project. We will also empathize with the satisfaction that comes from addressing the challenges of unknowns and unknown-unknowns and that moment when “it finally works”.
