Meet the Raspberry Pi Zero
Ethan Dicks will give a presentation about 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.
As always, feel free to bring with you any ailing or problematic
systems for expert diagnosis (or destruction).
There are no dues or fees.
The meeting will be held at:
2 Miranova Place
Columbus, OH 43215

Please park in the Orange section of the parking garage, which is
specifically for guest parking. Parking in any other spot runs the
risk of taking someone's assigned parking spot. There is little
risk of doing so at 7 PM, but why risk causing any trouble? Please
park in the orange section. We will have parking vouchers so you do
not have to pay to park if you RSVP'd to Scott Merrill <skippy at
On-street On-street parking is available at meters. I do not know how
late they are enforced. We are in the Car2Go service area, so
Car2Go users can park at nearby meters for free.
