Event description
A fun night talking tech. A lot of electronics, controller, Raspberry Pi projects. All ages - everyone is nerdy and lovely. Join us.

About this Event

This is Raspberry Pint, where we share our digital making experiences.

Most of our presentations are about building personal or professional projects with Raspberry Pis, Arduinos, ESP32s, Microbits, etc. We also welcome presentations about skills and techniques such as website design, PCB design, SW development, 3D printing, soldering, etc. Occasionally, we have had presentations about deep learning, big data, IoT, etc. and would love to hear about what you do in your hobby or professional life. All makers and all digital making welcome. The quirkier the better.

Whilst more of our presentations are put onto an agenda, ad hoc presentations also happen as well as people just bringing stuff to show.

Agenda:

20:00 Tony Smith: Solid PCB Design Principles - Clearance, Creepage and Segregation

After Richard's EL Wire talk which included self-electrocution, melting inverters, and general mayhem caused by bad practice, Tony is going to talk about best practice for designing circuits. Appropriate design is more likely to lead to long term success of your project or product. Some of the key considerations are clearance, creepage, and segregation. Tony will provide practical advice to avoid physically costly errors.

20:30 Mark Swanson: Swift and DSL for Microcontrollers

Do you use buttons, servos, motors, sensors, potentiometers, speakers, and displays? Have you ever tried to read and de-bounce sensors and buttons while smoothly fading LEDs and animating an RGB LED strip all at once? The code to do these things can quickly become complex and riddled with bugs.

Join us to learn about an implementation of the modern programming language, Swift, combined with a Domain Specific Language designed to simplify the use of components commonly found in microcontroller based projects. There will be an introduction to this system, live demonstrations of it in action, and QA.

21:20 Have a Break and a Chat

21:30 Christian Bianchini: Easter Installation

Christian brings us his third seasonal installation. The Easter installation is a matching bunnies game by jumping on pressure pads and then winning an egg.

22:00 PINTS IN THE REMOTE PUB

Rest and relax with questions and chatter.
