Hello people,

OzBerryPi turns one on the 21st of July! We are hosting a hackspace to celebrate.

Since we have had solid growth and projects coming together, I would like to adjust the format of the day just slightly... with the introduction of micro talks on the hour.


Format

6 hours – relaxed, unstructured collaboration and learning, come and go as you please.

Micro talks on the hour - Starting from 1pm. Get up and speak about your project (or another topic of interest) for 10 minutes. This is optional, but we hope this will help get people together.

 

What to bring

Note: all of our external screens have now died... So bring a small screen for the day if you can. At the minimum please bring your laptop.


The Flea Market

If you have stuff to swap, sell or give away, please bring it along.

It's carry in carry out, so if you have gear left over please take it home with you.


Cheers,

Stonie.

    I'm keen on sharing a sneak peek of what's around the corner from Ninja Blocks... RPi + Arduino Crust + <insert any arduino shield here>. With minimal coding in the .ino file, the shield can easily be made accessible online via your NB account.
    PS. I'll bring some chocolate, it may contain raspberries :p

    Looking forward to working with Ozberry Pi and increasing the number of educators participating.

      Attracting educators/teachers is proving *very* challenging. Any help here appreciated.

    I'd love to do a talk on my project which uses my remote servers in the UK to play TV from the BBC and America on my RasPi. I'll also be selling servers and VPNs if anyone is interested.

    I can give a brief talk about a demonstration project I did interfaceing a Pi with an Atmel AVR ("low level" Arduino). The Atmel AVR is used as an IO device reading a sensor and the Pi displays the reading in a web-page.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
