SKUG June 20th Meeting w/Glenn Mossy, Stacy Draper, and Bryan Bolling

Title: Electronics Technology - Why current, resistance, voltage and ohms laws important.

Synopsis: In an effort to keep from burning up our precious components a simple 15 minute presentation on electronics technology is included in every meeting. Glenn will provide an informative lesson on the simple a relationship between three electric properties, called ohm's law defining the empirical relationship between voltage, current and resistance and how it relates to anything we try to build.

Speaker: Glenn Mossy

Biography: Glenn has forty years of taking things apart and building new things, with a special interest in all things robotics. In his home hackerspace, Glenn currently is building a number of Arduino based shields for robotics and enjoys introducing others to the fun of electronics. Thirty years ago he gave his first presentation on motor-control for robotics at a conference with the International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED). Glenn holds a bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering from Louisiana Tech University (1986). Visit him and read his blog at http://gmossy.wordpress.com

 

Title: Raspberry Pi - The Hardware and its peripherals

Speaker: Stacy Draper

Biography: I build my computer because I like to build my computer exactly the way I want it. I think I might like to build other stuff.

 

Title: Raspberry Pi Core Environment

Synopsis: What is Raspberry Pi? What is its purpose and how can we setup an environment to work with it? Come and lean about the tiny and inexpensive System on a Chip (SoC) computer. We will cover the operating systems and programming languages that can be used with the Raspberry Pi computers. We’ll discuss setting up development environments and touch on some of the possible uses for Raspberry Pi. Unleash your imagination and the possibilities are endless!

Speaker: Bryan Bolling

Biography: Bryan is a Senior Consultant with Microsoft. With fourteen years of experience, Bryan has developed software on Mainframe systems, client-server desktop applications, .NET Web Applications and is currently focusing on SharePoint and Windows Store Application development.

    Pleasant fun tech talk on Raspberry Pi; I have built a variety of computers over the years at work or at home, but never anything quite like that little thing. I also enjoyed the basic electronics chat in its 15 minutes of glory, thank you.

      Don't worry Peter, I wasn't told about it either and I run the meetup site.
