Activities for January 2017

This month, we’ll be revisiting the basics of using the Raspberry Pi. If you know anybody who just received a Pi over the holidays, or who has yet to get their’s out of the box, now’s a great time to invite them along.

Main Workshop: Introduction to Raspberry Pi and PIXEL

Get to grips with the basics of Raspberry Pi, with an overview of the recently released PIXEL desktop, and whistle-stop tour of the included software.

In the second half, we’ll familiarise ourselves with the linux command line, and use it to update and install software, and configure our Raspberry Pi. This workshop is suitable for beginners.

Note: We’ll be running through the setup for the NOOBS installer, which will take around 20 minutes. Please arrive by 10:30 to ensure you can start the workshop on time.

All-day Activity: The Pi Clinic

Getting started with your Raspberry Pi? Or perhaps you’re stuck on a project, or just have a crazy idea and no idea how to make it a reality?

Bring your Pi, your projects or your ideas along to the Pi Clinic and we’ll do our best to get you moving in the right direction.
