We have two upcoming Raspberry Pi Classes posted!
So you want to play with a Raspberry Pi? But maybe you haven’t been able to get one yet. Well you’re in luck! This class includes a Raspberry Pi, Wifi, Power, Cables, LEDs, SD Card! This is everything you need to get the Pi going. Don’t know what a Raspberry Pi is? Check out this article from the NYTimes. The ticket includes $120 worth of hardware for you and the class tutorials.
Class Kit Includes:
This will be a two-day class. A laptop computer with at least 4 Gigs of space for the SD card image will be required.
Day 1) Bootstrapping your Raspberry PI (~2 hours)
Day 2) Doing fun things, like Python and GPIO programing (~2 hours)
If you have a Raspberry Pi board already, it must be the version that was released December 2012 with 512MB of Memory on board. The older boards have different PIN layouts that are inconsistent with the material that I’m teaching in class, and makes for a bit of a stumbling block when doing lessons. Additionally, all of the kits are pre-buldled with a Raspberry Pi by default, and are pre-ordered well before the class begins so we have enough stock for all students. This means that we may have extra Pis for sale at the start/end of the class.
