This Wednesday, Shawn Wallace and I will be hosting an O’Reilly webcast about the basics of how to get a Raspberry Pi up and running. It’s a free webcast, but you do have to register to attend. If you can’t make it to the webcast, check out our book, Getting Started with Raspberry Pi, which is now available and is even included in the Maker Shed’s Raspberry Pi Starter Kit! Here are all the details about the webcast from O’Reilly:
So you got a Raspberry Pi for the Holidays: how to get it up-and-running Wednesday, January 23, 2013 10AM PT, San Francisco 6pm – London | 1pm – New York | Thu, Jan 24th at 5am – Sydney | Thu, Jan 24th at 3am – Tokyo | Thu, Jan 24th at 2am – Beijing | 11:30pm – Mumbai
The credit-card-sized Raspberry Pi was developed to lower the barriers to teaching young people programming, and it is also popular with hardware hackers and hobbyists who may have a project that needs more computing power than a microcontroller.
Join us for a hands-on webcast presented by Matt Richardson and Shawn Wallace, authors of Getting Started with Raspberry Pi. Matt and Shawn will show you what you need to get up and running, walk you through installing the operating system to give you an understanding of all the hardware features of the Pi, and set up the small computer with the correct power source and peripherals.
This webcast will cover:
- Tour of the Boards
- The Proper Peripherals
- Do I need a Case?
- Booting Up
- Configuring Your PI
