Louis will take us through the setup of a Raspberry Pi. He'll show you how to burn the OS onto your SD Card. He'll then take you on a tour of the OS, teach you how to interface with an Arduino and show you how to use a popular python editor.
This group will be a haven for DIY and Open Source software/hardware enthusiasts to learn new things, make cool projects and share their skills/knowledge. The only requirement to join the group is the ability to learn new things. Expect classes in LAMP programming, Arduino, PCB Design (Eagle), lockpicking, beer brewing, soldering, painting, drawing, silkscreening and a whole lot more. We are a hackerspace/makerspace.
