WHAT: Introduction to Raspberry Pi – All day workshop
WHEN: 2.23.2014. 11am – 4pm
WHERE: The Centre for Computing History, Rene Court
Coldhams Road, Cambridge, CB1 3EW, United Kingdom
Following on from the success of our ‘Introduction to Raspberry Pi’ workshops throughout November last year, we are running the same sessions in February but in one day – Sunday 23rd February 2014.
With your host ‘The Raspberry Pi Guy’, aka Matthew Timmons-Brown, you’ll learn what the Raspberry Pi is, how to use it, program it and even make it control motors!
Matthew is the guy behind the successful You Tube channel ‘The Raspeberry Pi Guy’ and with over 18,000 subscribers he’s the perfect person to introduce you to a world of possibilities with the Raspberry Pi.
If you’ve bought a Raspberry Pi and don’t really know what to do next, then these workshops will be invaluable to you!
Spaces for these exciting hands on workshops are limited, so booking is required to ensure your place.
Morning Session – 11am to 1pm
What is the Raspberry Pi?
An introduction to the Raspberry Pi, what it can do and how to set it up.
Using the OS
Introduces you to Linux and shows you the basics needed to navigate around the operating system.
Afternoon Session – 2pm to 4pm
Programming the Pi
What is programming? An introduction to Python and how to program on the Pi.
How to make the Raspberry Pi control motors and sense switches.
These informative, practical and inventive, hands-on after school workshops are ideal for both students and adults alike!
As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email email@example.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!
