Hi <<First Name>>,

Tonight (8 December at 1830 AEDT), join us for a really good intro session.  No experience needed - in fact, we assume you won't know, which is why this session is running - it's aimed at beginners.  And after Steph's intro, a live Q&A to help you explore ideas. Plus we'll tell you about the plans for January and February TR Tuesdays that will expand on what we cover tonight.  It's worth dropping in, and we have some great project ideas for the future to help you build your skills and interest in real DIY technology,

Click here or on the TR Tuesdays graphic below to register.  Do it right now and join us via ZOOOOOOOM tonight 8 Dec at 1830 EADT for Technorama Tuesday: Small Board Computing Basics!

By the way, we'd love you to send this to your friends and non-Community Radio people - we're an inclusive bunch, and the more who get involved, the happier we will be.

Technorama Tuesday Webinar

Raspberry Pi and Arduino are the latest developments in affordable hobbyist electronics.  You could so easily use one or other (or both!) in your next project, and save heaps of time and money.  But which do you choose?  Why?  What are the strengths of each?  How do you get started? 

In this session, you'll learn what can you do with these boards for projects at your station, and discover the key differences in features between them so you can make an informed decision on your next project.

The Raspberry Pi is a tiny, really cheap, REAL computer designed to teach computing that can do so many jobs at your station. Plug in one or two monitors or TVs, a USB keyboard and mouse, load the free full-function operating system, and off you go!  

Arduino boards are much simpler (and even cheaper), but are perfect for doing control jobs, measurements, flashing lights, and managing buttons.  Both devices are powering a new revolution of cheap, 'Internet of Things' devices, along with so much more.  

About our presenter:  Steph Piper is the Community Engagement Coordinator at USQ, looking after the library Makerspace.  She is also co-founder of Elkei Education, introducing electronics skills and positive role models to young girls.  With a background in bio-fabrication, Steph also teaches classes in 3D printing, Arduino and Hardware development.

At the end of the session, Terry O'Connor, Evan Wyatt and moderator John Maizels will join Steph for a Q&A, and talk about some projects that YOU can do over the break.

From the team,
