In this class you'll learn what the Raspberry Pi is, the components on the Model A/B, what you need to start using your Pi, and what the Raspberry Pi really is and how come YOU should care.
Learn how to get up and running with your Pi and how to find the various ARM-based operating systems. This class will focus primarily on Raspbian.
Leaving the class you'll have the skills to:
• Download then Format the correct File System for your project
• Write and Install Raspbian from your SD Card
You will get a good understanding of how you can use your Pi for almost anything, including but not limited to: Home Security, Micro Arcade, BitCoin Mining, Home Cloud Server, and even just having a portable PC to play Minecraft on the go with only a few Double A batteries.
Come with an OPEN mind and see how the latest technology is changing the future and how micro platforms like the Pi are just the start of the Maker movement, giving everyone a chance to take part.
Requirements: Red Food Coloring, Puff Pastry (just kidding!) bring a 4GB or larger SD Card & if you have a Pi, bring it in!
* KIDS are welcome BUT with a responsible Adult for kids under 13. Please let us know if you'll be bringing a child, so the class can be tailored for both Adults & Kids.
