Next scheduled LinuxChix Los Angeles event will be a Raspberry Pi Installfest. The RasPi is, “a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python.” (source )

Have you wanted to play with the RasPi but didn't know how to get started? Here's your chance. It's time to Pi!

We've listed the minimum hardware requirements below, but you are only limited by your imagination with RaspPi projects. Addon project boards and ideas for what the RaspPi can do for you can be found here.

Minimim Requirements

• Raspberry Pi. The latest version is RaspPi3, but versions 1 and 2 are just fine.

• Raspberry Pi Power Source. Recommended 2.5A/5V, along with micro connection.

• Monitor. If you have an HDMI monitor that's terrific, but if your monitor is VGA only then please get an HDMI/VGA adapter. (®-Active-HDMI-Adapter-Audio/dp/B00THWPE1M/)

• Keyboard. USB please!

• Mouse. Also USB please!

• MicroSD card. Minimum size 8GB.

Pre-assembled Raspberry Pi kits are also available. Link below is to recommended kits reviewed by Pretzel Logix ( )

There is plenty of time to get a Pi of your very own :-)
