11/7 - BeagleBone Black Getting Started with Embedded Linux

Join us for a 2 hour workshop from 7:00PM to 9:00PM, November 7th in Synergy Park North(SPN)

Join us in SPN 2.220 to learn about designing your own embedded Linux systems! Dinner will be served prior to the event.

You are welcome to arrive up to an hour early in order to make sure you have your development environment properly set up; we will have people ready to help you with any problems you may have.

Details: You may know Linux, but it is a different world when it comes to embedded devices. Check out the open source BeagleBone Black single board computer www.beagleboard.org/black and see how it is well suited for creating applications that rely on a variety of peripherals.

In this workshop, students and instructors will have fun programming in Python to get some data from the real world and create a game based on real feedback from inputs and outputs.

Participants will need to bring a laptop to interact with the BeagleBone Black hardware.
