Raspberry Pi for the Techie
August 30 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Chris Jelley from the North Merrick Public Library will show participants how he saved his library money by having his OPACs run off of Raspberry Pi computers instead of PC computers. Chris will also show how he makes and runs “headache free” digital signage with Raspberry Pi. After the workshop Chris will lead a tour of North Merrick Public Library so participants can see the Raspberry Pi computers in action.
On top of learning how to create Raspberry Pi OPACs and digital signage participants will learn the following:
-Getting staff/community buy in.
-How to keep RasPi secure/updated
-Costs and cost benefits
-Realities of mixed OS environments
Participants should have an expert level understanding of computers. Having an understanding of Linux is helpful but not required.
This workshop is limited to 12 participants.
