Raspberry Pi: From Kindergartners to MadScientists

Raspberry Pi: From Kindergartners to MadScientists

That is the title of the talk I will be giving on october 21st, at 4pm, part of the program for PyCarolinas 2012, the first Python conference held in the carolinas ( the states of North Carolina and South Carolina on the southern east coast of the United States, for our international readers).

October 20th-21st

Kerr Hall
UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy
Chapel Hill, NC

  PyCarolinas' website

So what is the talk about?

  • A quick background on the Raspberry Pi
  • How it can be used in education
  • Comparison with a typical desktop
  • The mad scientist bit (interfacing with hardware)
As far as Python is concerned, there will be setup, demo, explanations of libraries etc and the last part will cover GPIO libraries, some Web.py and other cool bits. Be there or be square.
