A creative and fun evening while learning modern maker skills.

We're incredibly excited to be able to offer a Raspberry Pi Workshop right here in Newcastle. In this workshop, we'll introduce you to the wonderful world that is Raspberry Pi. We'll take a look at the different ways it can be used, how to install operating systems, how to code with Python and interface with real-world hardware to control the world around you.

You will use our own Raspberry Pi's and hardware, there is no "take home" gear (you're welcome to buy stuff afterward if you like). Our workshops will empower you with a range of skills to kickstart your next Raspberry Pi project. You will get hands-on with the latest Raspberry Pi hardware, setup a development environment (using our LCDs / keyboards and mice) and learn to code/interface with other hardware. By the end of this course we cover off on:

  • An introduction of Raspberry Pi hardware and specifications
  • How to setup operating systems
  • How to use Terminal
  • How to code with Python and BASH on a Raspberry Pi Model B
  • How to build circuits and prototype with Raspberry Pi gear
  • How to interface with inputs on the GPIO
  • How to control outputs on the GPIO
  • How to use Pi Hats (modular expansion boards)
  • How to download external packages to fast-track development with Pi Hat's / other hardware
  • How to update your operating system
  • How to get support in the future / tips for next steps

Our structured and focused approach will fast track you through the technical hurdles that people often face. This course is incredibly empowering if you are new to embedded electronics or need a nudge in the right direction. Plus we're here to support you afterward as we're full-time makers and are always eager to help out where we can.

  1. Review by Tony verified purchaser

    Highly informative. My mind is reeling with possibilities. Dave and Graham had all the answers. The workshop was well structured, providing a great introduction to the Raspberry Pi and to the programming language, Python. (Posted on 15/12/2017)
