Club Meeting Thursday 8/17

The after meeting program will include: An introduction to the Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Launchpad, Beaglebone and other single-board computers and microcontroller starter boards that are used to great effect to sense and control a multitude of things.  Don’t worry about knowing anything about electronics or programming, as the purpose of these boards is to make those worlds available to the uninitiated using a simplified programming environment and inexpensive electronic parts and easy to learn concepts.
