The Rasberry Pi, a small, fast, yet low cost computer, has revolutionized the world on mico computing. This wildly popular computer, which only costs $35 and can fit in the palm of your hand, has unleashed a plethora of applications and uses beyond anything the mind could imagine.
Our guest speaker, Greg Blair, VE3OBJ, will be introducing us to the facinating world of Raspberry Pi, with a pacticular emphasis on how this gizmo is inspiring hams around the world to take ham radio to places that it has never gone before.
Greg, who is one of the CenTor ARC instructors and accredited examiners, is a mathematician by education that works extensively in signal & image processing, computer vision, computer graphics and and enjoys fooling around with micocontrollers and ARM processors.
This presentation will kick-off a series of workshops focused around the set-up and use of the Rasberry Pi, which is sure to delight the DIY hobbyists in all of us.
