Raspberry Pi

A workshop on "Raspberry Pi" presented by Numeric Infosystem Pvt. Ltd.

Raspberry PI is one of the most popular open source development platforms available in the market today. It is a miniature credit-card sized powerful computer that let designers develop multimedia applications - media playback & streaming, gaming, graphics etc. Raspberry PI operates on Linux and has Broadcom BCM2835 - full HD multimedia SOC which includes ARM11 running at 700MHz and VideoCore IV GPU.

About Workshop

This workshop will introduce you to the unexplored potential of the Raspberry Pi-the hardware, software and its applications. The Workshop is designed to cater to all kinds – be it a novice or a tech savvy hobbyist or an expert developer extraordinaire.

During the course of the workshop interesting open problems are floated and the participants are encouraged to think out-of-box and come up with innovative solutions. Post workshop, each participant will have a sound exposure to Python programming and interfacing of Raspberry Pi. A perfect recipe for innovation!
