(What are you waiting for?)
Our First Workshop - Raspberry Pi
Did you know that a Raspberry Pi can play Full HD video from a USB drive when connected to a TV/Monitor? A Raspberry Pi can do so much more and can be used to interact with the physical world.
In this workshop, you will learn how to:
set up a Raspberry Pi,
work with the Pi to read light and temperature of your surroundings,
and explore how the Raspberry Pi can be used for home automation.
This workshop is ideal for beginners, tinkerers, makers, educators or anyone interested in experimenting with the Raspberry Pi.
