The October meeting went really well. We had 11 people attending! We had lots of good general purpose questions being asked. Tonight we had two presentations:
- SQLite (https://sqlite.org/) – Gary Melvin has been busy interfacing his Arduinos to all kinds of temperature sensors like the LM34. Gary gave a great presentation on how he uses SQLite to store his measured data-points and then demonstrated exactly how easy it is to use simple SQL instructions to start using the acquired date for making intelligent decisions. Thanks Gary….
- Raspberry Pi – Sam Williams discussed the Raspberry Pi and Linux. Sam demonstrated two different versions of Linux for the Raspberry Pi. He showed us how easy it is to get a media center up and running with the RaspBMC (http://www.raspbmc.com/) version of Linux. Also gave some ideas on how to tune these devices for performance. Sam then demonstrated how easy it is to set up a general purpose system using the Raspbian distribution(http://www.raspbian.org/) .
There were lots of cool things demonstrated this evening. Everyone had a really great time.
