Python User Group Meeting: Raspberry Pi Inauguration

Since this meeting will be held on a public holiday we will have no formal presentation, but an unpacking and inauguration ceremony of a Raspberry Pi device. We'll try to find out more about its capabilities and, of course, make it run Python. If you already have some experience with this device: even better, please come and share!

There will also be the opportunity to give lightning talks of 5-10 minutes lenght. Please register yours on this EtherPad.

    So no one uses an IDE, or no one is reading this or no one is answering?

      yes, I'm using pydev for many years now and so far I found it better to work with than any of the alternatives I tried (e.g. pycharm, netbeans). Btw: for pydev there is currently crowdfunding effort going on - http://www.indiegogo....­

      Not a full-featured IDE but Sublime Text 2 bundled with SublimeRope (https://github.com/Jul...­) is pretty powerful (yet lightweight) and currently my favorite way to develop python things. I've also enjoyed using PyDev a couple of years back.

    I use PyCharm (not free but cheap, aimed at web-dev) at my work for big projects, however I believe it's to heavy for PI (written in Java what else to expect), also tried Eric (free) and Wing IDE, and usually use emacs for small edits.

    BTW, I've met Massimo Banzi (co-founder of the Arduino.cc project) today at berlin.codemotionworld.com, and other people like Claudio Carnevali (OpenPicus.com) imitating/refining these concepts. All that makes me believe that something is taking off right now that these people name "object-oriented hardware" (Massimo) or "Internet 'on' things" (Claudio). Soon, even your dog will be one of them...

    Maybe somebody can bring an externally powered USB hub? That would be really helpful, since I can't find any at home. :-/ So far I'll bring a wireless dongle, a SD card reader and of course a keyboard and mouse (all USB). We'll also have a beamer with HDMI support. If somebody has a webcam that might be cool as well... or anything else you've played with. See you tonight!
