NERP - Not Exclusively Raspberry Pi Message Board › NERP Tonite: Pingo means “pin, go!”
NERP is Not Exclusively Raspberry Pi, the small computer and
embedded systems interest group at Pumping Station:One in
Chicago. NERP meets every other Monday at 7pm at Pumping
Station:One, 3519 N. Elston Ave. in Chicago.
Luciano Ramalho is a member of Garoa Hacker Clube in Sao Paulo,
Tonight at NERP, Luciano will tell us about the Pingo project in
progress at Garoa HC (http://www.pingo.io/d....
Pingo aims to make interconnecting small controllers of all
sorts easy and transparent, so that they can use each other's
peripherals. An example use case would be using Python on a
Beagle (or similar) to effectively "program" one or more
From the website: "Pingo provides a uniform API to program
devices like the Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone Black, pcDuino etc.
just like the Python DBAPI provides an uniform API for database
programming in Python.
The API is object-oriented but easy to
use: a board is an instance of a Board subclass. Every board has
a dictionary called pins which lists all GPIO pins on the board.
Each pin is an instance of a Pin subclass with attributes that
you can inspect to learn about its capabilities."
