Session / Presenter
The Virtual Raspberry Pi: Options & Alternatives/Richard Kordel
This session will feature some alternatives for those who may not have a Raspberry Pi with them. If you have a laptop, we will be walking thru the process of installing a Virtual Machine manager and a copy of Raspian, the Pi Operating system.
Setup Your Raspberry Pi: The Out of Box Experience / TBD
If you are new to the Raspberry Pi, bring it along. We will walk the process of creating a bootable SD card, downloading Raspian, and starting your pi. There will be a very limited number of monitors and keyboards available, so if you bring your own it will be easier.
Raspian: Basic Linux Administration
The native operating system of the Pi is Raspian, a variant of Debian. If you have never worked with Linux this session is designed to reduce stress and teach you some basic sysadmin commands.
This is an open session conducted according to the rules established at BarCamps. BarCamps are open “unconferences” where anyone can share, and anyone can participate.
Instructional Technologist Workshop / Richard Kordel
PDE Instructional Technologists can serve as critical resources for schools to explore the Pi in a variety of STEM curricula. This session will provide an opportunity to share experiences and to explore some educational resources available for the Pi and for Instructional Technology Specialists.
Game Programming & Minecraft
There are several books written about the Raspberry Pi and Minecraft. This session will explore some of those topics.
