KWLUG Talk: Raspberry Pi Projects

Yesterday, I gave a talk at the KWLUG.

It covered the following:

  • Where and What to buy?
  • Hardware (Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi 3)
  • Pros and Cons
  • What 'distros' available and how to install?
  • Project: Weather Forecast. The fix for the pywapi API for Canadian cities is here
  • Project: Internet Radio, using Mopidy. More details here
  • Project: Internet Radio, using Kodi

The star of the show however, was Omar Atwa, who presented on his grade 8 water irrigation project using a Raspberry Pi. I did mentor him for the software part. The attendees raved at Omar's project.

The slides from the talk are attached below.
