CS department tea: Raspberry Pi's and department displays

Location: CS department research lounge

The Raspberry Pi is a small, low-cost, Linux-based computer introduced in 2012 (see http://http://www.raspberrypi.org), which contains interesting capabilities for software development and prototyping. In the CS department, we are planning to use these computers to drive the (currently dark) screens around the department in order to display announcements, information specific to different rooms, and other content. In this department tea, we'll discuss general capabilities and features of the Pi's, as well as examine a prototype display system. The prototype system is written in Python, and the department is interested in having students involved in further development of the system. All students are encouraged to attend, and lunch will be available after the talk and discussion.
