UniForum Chicago is proud to announce the topic for the August 14, 2012 SIG meeting: "Linux for Desert: Experimenting with the Raspberry Pi" by Jeff Jirsa

Our meetings are free and open to the public and begin promptly at 7pm at the IIT Rice Campus in Wheaton, IL. Additional information regarding this presentation can be found at


Hope to see you there!




Teaching students about computers can be expensive.  The Raspberry Pi organization decided to change that. For $35, students can learn about computer hardware and software on the cheap. It didn't take long for hobbyists to find out about the little computer board, and start experimenting with what it can do.

In this presentation, you will learn what it takes to set up the hardware, configuring the software, and look all the kinds of projects that people are doing with the Pi. There is plenty of resources on the net to help you get started, and maybe you'll get an idea for something cool!  Let's get excited about computers again!

    The subject matter was interesting enought and while there were various technical problems it worked well enough eventually.
