Program for Pi and More 11 Online Oct. 18, 2018

On Saturday, November 3, a diverse program around the Raspberry Pi and other small computers will be presented at the University of Trier. As always, various talks and workshops will be held for beginners and experts. Hobbyists, makers, professional users, students, teachers, and other Pi enthusiasts will be in their element.

In addition to the Raspberry Pi, there are two other Minicomputer in focus this time: The Calliope mini, which some of you may know already, and the Kniwwelino, which has been developed in neighbouring Luxembourg. Both are especially targeted towards students and offer a particularly lightweight introduction to microcontroller programming. Also the topic Smart Home is in focus again: Several talks will show how the home garage door, the room temperature control, and also the meeting room in the office can be intelligently controlled and managed.

As usual, we ask that you register as a visitor in advance.
