RASPBERRY PI AND JAVASCRIPT JAM

See the in progress slides here http://dpcrook.github.io/rpi-hw-js-demo/

This will be an introduction to running Javascript on much smaller computers such as microcontrollers and SBCs (single-board computers). For this specific presentation, we'll be working on Raspberry Pi, which are inexpensive SBCs about the size of a deck of cards.

A Raspberry Pi may be small, but it is able to run a 32-bit operating system like Linux and have full Internet connectivity. Plus it includes an expansion header that can talk directly to other hardware components such as sensors and LEDs. We will use Node.js and other libraries to interact with this hardware capability in our demo.

Attendees should plan on bringing their laptops or smartphones. For the hands-on part you will have more fun when you bring along something with wifi and an SSH client installed. And a web browser.
