    Hey Andrew, a great meeting, good to see so much participation. What with the comings and goings I left my SD card in one of the Pi machines. A guy was settingup bitcoin mining on it, it has a hostname of "mitchell", it is a farnell card, labeled "Dec 2012" or there abouts, could I get it back from you next meeting. CU Ross

    It was great afternoon! I learned a lot from the great presentations of Andrew, Peter and Alex and was very lucky to win a door prize of a 4GB SD Card with RASPBMC image for my raspberry pi.
    Thanks a lot Andrew for organizing the event and for your leadership in this meetup group.

    Just wanna say I admire what you're up to here. I'm not an 'educator', but if I can help in some capacity, if you need help, let me know! (If you don't ask, you don't get!)

      The more techies in the room to help out during the labs the better! please do come along if you can :)

    Hey Stonie,

    A couple of questions regarding Saturday?

    1) you have an agenda for the day yet? Are you working through a training style day, or is it more like a hackday where people bring along their projects (or indeed a little of both). 2) I have a 10 year old boy who i'd love to get into the Pi with and maybe help some of his friends at school, so 'm trying to work out if the session is relevant to me and whether he would get any value from coming along too?

    Cheers

    James

      Question 1: The First half is an introductory talk from first principals followed by basic guided hands on labs. Second half will comprise of micro talks and open format hackspace. Question 2: Alex will be giving a micro talk on Minecraft and there will be the opportunity to have a play. So yes please bring your kids along! I will post the official agenda shortly, once I have finalised a few last details with the Guys at the Powerhouse. Cheers, Stonie.

    Hi, I want to get a second Pi, will there be any available for sale there? It was available when Element14 hosted it.

    Note: I am also a Rastrack registered user.

    July 11, 2013

    • Andrew S.

      There are no plans at this stage to sell units on the day. However you are welcome to bring along your own gear/project if you wish. I would suggest the e14 or RS websites in you need another Pi. - Cheers Stonie.

    Hello all,

    If you are an actual practising primary or high school teacher could you do me a favour and answer a few quick questions? Please contact me direct at: [masked]

    Cheers :)

    Hi Mates,
    I've a RPi, and a project (certainly common): using the RPi as a mediacenter. Watch videos/share hard drive. I may use it as a tiny server. Could you help by telling what and where I should buy to get this working ?
    So far, I believe I need (hardware):
    - SD card
    - power source for 1 or 2 hard drive (2.5 inches )
    - usb hub: some free usb port (1 or 2) to connect Usb key, and one for a wireless keyboard
    - wifi dongle Cheers.
    Alex

    I am in discussions with regards to the venue... that should be sorted out in the near term. I am keen to see more involvement from school teachers so if you know any that might be interested please let them know! :)

    Cheers,

    While I have zero experience on the Pi, I have developed software so conceptually I should be ok. Is there a teaching toolset / guide?
    Thanks
    Jerry

    • Andrew S.

      The best way to get started is by getting your hands on one and having a go. the getting setup guide is here: http://wiki.ozberrypi...­

      April 30, 2013

    • Andrew S.

      there are 1000s or articles on the web, and if your after something more guided thats what the meetup will be about. :)
