The Raspberry Pi is a tiny single-board computer, cheap enough to use as an embedded computer, flexible enough for Internet of Things applications, and powerful enough to use as a general-purpose computer, where other computers dare not go. Do you have a project in mind for this low-cost computer, but don’t know where to start with it? Join us with this introduction to the Raspberry Pi. We’ll show you everything you need to get the Raspberry Pi set up, and get you started reading inputs and writing outputs to the Raspberry Pi’s General-Purpose I/O connector. If we have time, we will show you how to install a full operating system on the Raspberry Pi, and turn it into a tiny desktop computer!

Eric Richardson

Eric Richardson is a systems engineer at Lockheed Martin. When his wife Vui Nguyen (a software engineer and member of Women Who Code) needed a hardware engineer for her Intel Roadshow team, she drafted him. Thus did he finally put his education as a Computer Engineer to use developing Internet of Things Systems. He can program a computer, choose the perfect time -- if you’ve got the inclination, he has got the crime!

Parking Suggestions

A block or so north on that same side of the road is a lot that allows cheaper parking after 6pm (I think either $2 or $4 for the evening). Before 6pm it is employee parking.

There is also street parking in the Highland neighborhood across the bridge or at the nearby park. There are plenty of 2 hour street parking, but there should also be spots for longer than that if you can find them.
