RaspberryPi SenseHat Fun!

The Internet Of Things (IOT) is upon us! Let's rejoice and be nerds, in this session come enjoy a simple introduction to the Sense HAT Raspberry PI shield. No prior knowledge of the Raspberry PI, sensor or electronics required. We will build some real life samples of what can be done for fun and profit with a simple Raspberry PI and a Sense HAT shield.

  3. Agenda • Why I chose to do this presentation? •

    What is SenseHat? • Brief History • What can it do? (Sensors) • Demos
  4. Why I chose to do this presentation? • Arduino •

    Language: C • Electronics knowledge required. • No UI (Not a deal breaker). • Daughters (2 Units) • Encourage them to learn about STEM. • Language: Python, Scratch. • Little or no electronic knowledge required. • Raspberry Pi ecosystem is more rich and better supported (IMHO). • UI (Raspbian OS)
