Intro to Pi & Others is a short monthly session to help get you up and running with your Pi or Other (embedded device). It is an unstructured hour-long session where you can ask questions, bring in your Pi or Other (and power supply), and get help with your project.
We plan on holding these sessions once a month on a Tuesday night. If you are looking for a bit of help, this session is for you.
Q Academy’s Manny Mandrusiak, Executive Director, and Leaoni Webb, Education Director provide a warm welcome and all the essentials for our Saturday morning gatherings. Thank you for being there Manny and Leaoni. Here’s a little something in appreciation of your hospitality.
Two augmented Raspberry Pi computers (called Astro Pis) are being flown to the International Space Station (ISS) as part of British ESA Astronaut Tim Peake’s mission. They are both equipped with the mighty Sense HAT that can measure the environment inside the station, detect how it’s moving through space, and pick up the Earth’s magnetic field. Each Astro Pi is also equipped with a different kind of camera; one has an infra-red camera and the other has a standard visible spectrum camera.
