The Raspberry Pi microcontroller development board is a powerful pocket sized computer. The board is capable of running Linux and is useful in networking projects and interfacing sensors.

This hands-on tutorial will equip you with the basic knowledge needed to flash the SD card and set up the board’s operating system. Learn how to configure digital inputs and connect to a Wi-Fi network.

What to Bring

All HDMI cables, SD cards, hardware, and monitors will be provided by IEEE Concordia and must be returned at the end of the workshop. Attendees interested in purchasing electronic components used in a project may be able to do so through IEEE Concordia, depending on interest and the particular edition of this workshop.
