Meet the Raspberry Pi Zero
Raspberry Pi is a family of small Linux computers aimed at educational
and hobby users. With features ranging from built-in audio and
high-def video, user-controllable I/O pins, USB for peripherals and
storage and network connectivity, they have been used for programming
language learning platforms, media players, DIY webcams, weather
stations, and a lot more. Since the February 2012 release of the
original "B" model at $35, millions have been sold in a handful of
varieties. Last November, the latest member of the family, the model
Zero, came out with double the memory and one third the physical size
for the astounding price of $5. They sold out in hours and are still
catching up with demand. Come see what they left out to shrink this
model down to a fraction of the size and a fraction of the price and
what they left in that makes it a terrific bargain for the right use.
The upcoming meeting is open to the general public, and all with an
interest in Linux, Free Software, Open Source Software, Windows, BSD,
Unix, Raspberry Pi, etc.
As always, feel free to bring with you any ailing or problematic systems
for expert diagnosis (or destruction).
There are no dues or fees.
