NYLUG Workshop / Hacking Society

For our first Hack Workshop of 2013, the coordinators will be discussing the Raspberry Pi, a $35 computer designed as a learning computer for children and adults. We also will be teaching simple DIY electronics projects, and programming tutorials. We will also help newcomers to Linux learn the ropes of getting around.

Bring something to discuss! We've been focusing on LaTeX, Python, Smalltalk, and using Linux, but were open to anything. There's a blackboard, chalk, and Internet access.  Notebook computers are helpful but not required. Bring books! Bring hardware! Bring software! Bring friends! All levels of experience from totally new to experienced welcome!


After workshops, the coordinators go out for dinner at Super Noodle, located at 70 7th Avenue South, just up the block from the library. Feel free to join us for some lively dinner conversations!

It is helpful, but not necessary to have a notebook computer. If you would like to work on hardware hacking or electronics, feel free to bring equipment. There's WiFi in the library for your convenience.

    That is the problem of having two individuals involved with the same objects, and same examples of operating systems. But given the fact that my methods are completely different then Rob's then that will always happen.

    The speakers knew their topics but to have two unrelated discussion where the talkers are within a few feet of each other in such a large room made it impossible to hear most of either.

    Not too bad. The demos were the life of the party.

    I know there will a RaspberryPi session, but it looks like there will be a good number of people attending so multiple breakout sessions are probably in order. (Unless it turns out everyone is there for RaspberryPi). When we start, we'll ask and see if anyone is up to moderating a sysadmin track/session.

      I'll add that there will probably be someone there, who can lead a track on system administration if there is enough demand, but there certainly won't be a formal presentation.
