About this Hacking Session:

Join us in taking a look at the Raspberry Pi (Open Source hardware) to explore ways to use it and build cool stuff!

Open source hardware is a great way to learn about what really goes on under the scenes. Even if you only write code that's in a high-level language or a scripting language, eventually, it has to run on hardware. The more you fiddle with it, the better understanding you have of the top-down view of what your code is really doing. And, believe me, if you need to debug some nasty bug, there is a high probability that you will end up looking at some lower-level code/constructs to figure out what is going on.

This hacking session is a great way to pique your interest about Raspberry Pi (especially if you've never really seen one) and learn about all the different components.

So, for those of you interested in tinkering with hardware (or even if you aren't and are curious about it), come join us for our next Hacking Session on Raspberry Pi!  Both Akkana and I (Rupa) got ours over the last week or so.


Note: I will try to buy a video camera before this event so we can video tape it - at least as a trial run. If you don't want to be in the video, I'll figure out how to hide you :) - just let me know by using this contacting the organizer form.


Suggested preparation:

Visit the Raspberry Pi website to read up on it before you come so you can get the most out of this hacking session. And, if you have an Arduino and are doing something cool with it, please do bring it and show us your coolness!

CodeChix - BayArea

CodeChix is a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives (501c3).  It is an organization for local women developers run by local women developers in a non-alpha, language/os agnostic, supportive environment with an emphasis on face-to-face communication. It is the first group of its kind and started in 2009 in San Jose, CA.

The key goals of CodeChix are to educate, promote and mentor women engineers and developers.  We foster continuous learning, provide mentorship/guidance and create a local community of women developers. The original chapter of CodeChix is in the Silicon Valley/Bay Area with additional chapters in Seattle/Redmond. The CodeChix slogan is “May the code be with you…”.

CodeChix organizes Hacking Sessions, Technical Talks and Technical Workshops. Past events include Wikipedia’s Operations Infrastructure, Algorithms and Directed Acyclic Graphs, Mobile/Graphic Design for Engineers Workshop, Toy Robotics: My little Pleo, OpenShift Workshop, Android Installfest & App Building 101, Hacking Raspberry Pi and Javascript Plugins Workshop.

Events are open to to the public or women-only (specified on the event description). Our speakers and workshop instructors can be female or male.
