π Raspberry Pi: What we have learned so far

A talk by Wolf Paulus and Tom Paulus

About the Talk

October 13, 2012 5:00 PM

The Raspberry Pi is an ultra-low-cost credit-card sized Linux computer. I.e., $35 buy you a small device with 2 USB ports, ethernet, HDMI, and analog video and audio out. The device has 256MByte SDRAM on board and comes equipped with an SDCard slot for 'external storage'. There are several Linux Distributions available for the RasPi and what you can build with it, seems almost limitless. We recently received a couple RasPis and would merely like to share what we have learned it so far. So this won't be you typical lecture style talk, rather a conversational session, where we hook-up one of the Raspberry Pis to an HDMI Display and show things like: - Creating a Raspbian (optimized version of Debian) SDCard to boot from, containing LXDE, Midori, etc. - What's happening at boot time and how would a tiny "Hello Word" distribution look like - Cutting the cord, using a small WiFi USB-dongle with the Raspberry Pi - Using a RS-232 Serial connection to talk to the Raspberry Pi - and much more
