Wireless Tablet Check-in with Name Tag Label Printing @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi

By Patrick via hackster.io

At the Cleveland VMUG events we will be using a new check-in system. The system consists of a Raspberry Pi, Edimax Wifi adapter and a DYMO thermal label printer to perform wireless iPad check-ins. The setup will sign-in preregistered individuals and capture data from walk-on attendees. Finally, producing a name tag label which is printed wireless to the DYMO LabelWriter 330. This is how it was accomplished!

Most important some sort of already existing Linux knowledge is highly recommended! This (updating + installing) will require a great amount of time since the Raspberry Pi’s processor is low in computational power and low IO through output since the Secure Digital memory card is generally slow. I started with a fresh image of Raspbian. At the time of writing, this tutorial is using version, 2014-09-09-wheezy-raspbian.

Let’s start by installing all the prerequisites libraries and binaries. Please complete the apt-get commands in order to prevent php5 installing apache2 since we are leveraging lighttpd.

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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
