Presentation: Raspberry Pi at the OLA Conference

I did a presentation on the Raspberry Pi at the Ontario Library Association Conference on Friday (as part of my "day job").

Here is the description from the presentation:

rce, IT Co-ordinator, County of Prince Edward PL & Archives

Since its release in 2012, millions of Raspberry Pi $35 credit-card-sized single-board computers have sold. Used by electronic makers of all ages to build projects such as media players, home automation and security, Internet-connected dog treat dispensers, and more. Learn how to present a hands-on workshop demonstrating the basics to engage a cross section of library patrons."

A lot of libraries (and schools) are doing MakerSpaces to engage patrons, and there were a number of presentations on this theme at the conference.
