Raspberry Pi + OpenFrameworks workshop

  • May 10, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • MFA Design and Technology, Parsons, The New School for Design

Learn the basics of running openFrameworks on the Raspberry Pi! In this small workshop, participants will create a simple OF app that lets the Pis talk over a network. We'll briefly go through the steps of setting up the Pi, learn how to compile projects, and talk about the strengths and weaknesses of the Pi as a platform for running openFrameworks. What types of projects are well suited to running OF on the RPi? Finally, we'll install and customize a small skeleton application that can send, receive, and react to OSC messages, demonstrating how multiple Pis might be used together in a project. In the process, we'll touch on a number of topics — shaders, video and image processing, sensors, and more!

Participants are required to bring a Raspberry Pi, SD card, power supply, and usb-wifi card for networking. We'll have 5 screens and 5 keyboards to plug the Pis into, but if you have a small screen or keyboard, please bring them — the more the merrier.

    Hey guys, quick question. I'm gearing back up on RP but don't remember that website that we used to telnet into our Pi to program it via our laptop. What was the URL again?

    Thanks Jonathan and Jonathan for a great time and the friendly, plain English intro to Raspberry Pi, ofxOSC, and the command line.

    Big apologies but I'm going to have to be a last minute cancel. I specifically ordered next day delivery on the adafruit raspberry pi package on Thursday (the idea being that I would get it on Friday) and still have not received it...

    Hi everyone! Looking forward to tomorrow. Just wanted to mention that you'll want to bring your laptop as well — I'm guessing most of you will be doing that anyway, but realized we didn't say it explicitly in the workshop description.

      I had a 16GB and worked very well.

      Yep, any card 8GB or bigger should be fine.

    I'm very new to Raspberry PI. I have a small screen, keyboard, SD Card etc. But will we be going through burning the SD Card to begin?

    • Jonathan W.

      Hey Chris — yes, we will! We'll spend some time at the beginning going through SD card setup, just so it's not a mystery, but in order to speed things along we'll have an image pre-populated with OF and some sample code that we can burn onto everyone's SD cards.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
