Raspberry PI Event - 26th March 2013

An event organised by BCS Northampton; University of Northampton Computing Society (details of the society can be found at: http://www.northamptonunion.com/society/UoNComputingSoc/) and Department of Computing and Immersive Technology, University of Northampton, ran a training event for Computing students on the Raspberry PI.

Twelve students spent sometime on 26th March 2013 looking at:-
- how to find the operating system on-line; download and install the operating system on to a SD Card;
- Setting up the Raspberry PI including selecting basic configuration settings;
- Investigating the desktop and the software included.

The two goals of the session were:-
- to provide training to a group of students who could offer basic Raspberry PI support for a BCS Northampton event later in the year;
- to encourage the students to come up with their own ideas on what they could demonstrate at the same event.
