Being that the majority of members in the group are brand new to working with the Raspberry Pi, we'll have a hands on session introducing some (very) basic electronics and a bit of Python code to complete the "Hello World" of embedded development. If all goes well, no LEDs will be harmed during this meetup (LEDs will be provided but you are free to bring your own as well if you happen to have a specific favorite color).
You don't have to follow along if you want to just show up and watch, but if you want to participate you will need to bring the following:
-Working Raspberry Pi (Model B) running the Raspbian distro and a way to connect to it, as well as a WiFi adapter or network cable for downloading any software updates you may need
-Prototyping Breadboard (a half board should be fine, but bigger is better)
-Breadboard jumpers (or short lengths of solid core wires)
-Pi Cobbler (or male to female jumper wires for connecting to the Pi)
Some sources for components will be posted in the comments, as well as software packages that you may want to have pre-installed.
