An Introduction to the Raspberry Pi
Wednesday, 28 May 2014 from 18:30 to 21:30 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The Raspberry Pi is a low-cost, fully functioning computer that can be modified without too much effort. From syncing Christmas lights to music, to creating a home automation system, creative tinkerers have been able to modify the Raspberry Pi in fun and creative ways.
For this introductory class, you will be building a Media Player that will connect to your TV via HDMI. It will support AirPlay for direct streaming from an iPad or iPhone and be able to play videos, music, and photos from a hard drive. With the appropriate modification, it will also be able to play BBC iPlayer and 4OD channels.
We will start with an introduction to what the Pi can do and proceed to installing the necessary software onto an SD card. While this is not as straightforward as using Windows or a Mac, it is not as difficult as you may think.
Once your Raspberry Pi has been modified, you have the option of purchasing the entire unit, or simply the SD card so you can plug it into your own Raspberry Pi without having to install everything again.
We will also be looking at some other projects that use the Raspberry Pi in greater detail.
No programming knowledge is necessary to attend.
If you already own a Raspberry Pi, bring it along to the course and you can work with it in our MediaLab.
Each student will be provided with their own Raspberry Pi for use during the course.
