Rasberry Pi Workshop


In today's society, data privacy and infrastructural centralisation have become primary concerns. Existing Internet governance, laws and structures are being challenged. With increasing distrust in 'The Cloud' comes a broad call for publicly owned network infrastructures; infrastructures that would give users greater control over their personal communication, data and identities.

This workshop will introduce participants to basic building blocks of Computer networking, Command Line interface and WiFi communication. Small servers will be built and configured to create personal wireless networks. These servers will then allow their users to publish images, text and other media directly into the ether. 

No prior knowledge of computer networking, programming or command line interaction is required.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
