Drinking Beer with a Raspberry Pi and PHP
Always been interested in the Raspberry Pi but never known what you could do with it? Got a Raspberry Pi at home that you played with for 5 minutes before you got bored? This talk is for you.
We will be making a journey into the world of programming with sensors and other electrical components. The concepts introduced will not be specific to any programming language, but we will use PHP throughout to keep it simple. The demonstration will show how you could use a Raspberry Pi to spice up a home bar.
By the end of this talk, you will have acquired the skills to get started on your own hobby electronics projects! Maybe these skills will one day be handy introducing friends and family to the adventures of programming.
5 Minute Lightning Talk
We've introduced a new 5 minute lightning talk each month especially for local PHP folks to briefly show something to the PHP Hampshire audience. This could be anything from something cool you've been working on, an awesome tool you've discovered, or even trying out an idea for a longer talk.
This month's lightning talk will be by Andrew Lucas.
