Pi Masters is holding its second meetup event at Microsoft in Chevy Chase, Maryland on Thursday, January 9, 2014 at 5:30 pm. PLEASE NOTE: Based on feedback from our first meeting, we've decided to split the evening into two sessions (everyone is welcome to attend either or both). Doors will open at 5:30 pm and the event will start at 6:00 pm for beginners and 7:30 pm for those with more experience. RSVP here on Meetup.com. Again, I encourage you to bring your kids if you plan on building projects together with them!
Pi Masters was formed to encourage people of all levels and ages to come together to learn about and experiment with coding, engineering, electronics, and their interests in making digitally enabled devices, specifically using the Raspberry Pi, but also using such platforms as Arduino, BeagleBone and the like. All these platforms are affordable (Raspberry Pi runs around $35), readily available, small in size (just around 2” by 3”), and easy to use. We will share projects that we’ve built and tips to help each other create cool things.
This meetup is a collaborative effort organized by Multi Platform Media and Multi Platform Labs.
Please join us at this exciting event that we hope will bring together a collaborative and supportive maker community here in the Washington DC area.
AGENDA: (a more detailed agenda to be provided prior to the event)
5:30 – 6:00 pm Arrive and Network
6:00 – 7:20 pm Raspberry Pi 101
7:30 - 9:00 pm Pi Masters for the more experienced
