Raspberry Pi projects!

Four presenters will tell us about their hardware projects.  Three are Raspberry Pi projects, and the last is a hardware alternative to the Rasp Pi.

Pizza for this event is sponsored by Creare.

Drinks after the event at Meadhall are sponsored by Scout.

Our four presenters are Mike Milkin, Nash Reilly, Dag Holmboe, and Joseph Okor.

The Raspberry Pi is an affordable credit-card-sized computer.  Hardware hobbyists use it to power all sorts of projects.  Tonight we'll hear about a web-powered remote control car, a GMail/Twitter monitor, and a bus beacon.  No hardware experience is needed to appreciate the ingenuity of these projects.

    Hi - a few people have asked me about slides and source code from my talk. They're available here - I'll update the post later today with better links to my source code.

    Thanks to everyone for the positive responses! I'm really glad I got the chance to speak!

    Hi, sorry to bother everyone. I ran into someone I knew at the meetup named Jake, but he left before we could exchange contact info and no Jake's or Jacob's are listed as event attendees. Jake, if you read this, message me via my meetup profile. I'd love to figure out the connection. Thanks!

    I loved seeing the LED "bus approaching" monitor, the remote controlled car, and especially the "happy tweets" lightboard. I found the presentation on the Internet of Things fascinating. Looking forward to future presentations.
