Hack with our Raspberry Pi's & Collaborate on projects

Online event

!!!! The Melbourne Raspberry Pi Hackers Group would like to thank the City of Melbourne and especially the Docklands Library Maker Space for their on-going support. !!!!! This meetup is open to everyone with an interest in electronics, robotics, making, 3D printing, laser cutting, etc. Hackers (budding, amateurs, etc.) with interests in open hardware e.g. Arduino, ESP8266, ESP32, Raspberry Pi, Onion, OrangePi, etc. are invited to bring along their projects and come hack with us at the meetup. Meetup with other hackers here in Melbourne, get your questions answered, show off the work you are doing and get going on those problems that have stalled progress on your projects. The Docklands library has kits that you can borrow for use during the meetup. We encourage you to register as a library member, get inducted and grab a kit so that you can get hacking with the rest of us. We welcome hackers of all ages, including kids and women with interests in open hardware, open source. Read up more about the group at https://melbourne-rpi.com.au.

For those with ESP8266, ESP32 boards (NodeMCU, Wemo, etc.) a 5v, 2A power supply with a micro USB port is recommended. For those with an Arduino a 5v, 2A regulated power supply with a USB Type B is required. • Ethernet cable if you have one and need to troubleshoot any connectivity issues with the Rasberry Pi • Please note that we do not have any monitors at the makerspace. The makerspace does provide access to Pi-Tops which you can use during the session. We should be able to Pi-Top screens and set them as temporarily as a monitor for you. Please bring along any projects you have built. Show off what you've built and seek help as required. Kids are welcome at the meetup.
