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.

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!
