  • The Arduino Uno and Raspberry PI may well prove to be the next revolution in computing, and are taking off like a rocket.

    The Raspberry PI is a full-blown computer on a credit-card sized circuit board.

    Ray will talk about and demonstrate:

    -- Setting up and configuring the Arduino Uno
    -- Demonstrating several projects using the Arduino
    -- What the Raspberry PI consists of
    -- Comparing and contrasting the Arduino and Raspberry PI
    -- Setting up and configuring your PI using a Linux OS
    -- Basic PI input and output
    -- Programming on the PI
    -- Working with existing software apps
    -- Setting up PI as a web server
    -- And more !  (but wait...  now how much would you pay...)

    Our Sponsor:
    At Advantage Tech, our mission transcends filling job openings. Our goal is to create lasting relationships that benefit both candidate and employer. For job seekers, we present opportunities for growth and professional development. For employers, we bring that missing piece of the puzzle, a candidate who remains an asset to the organization over the long run.
    Our staffing roots run deep and originate from a unique perspective. Our founder, Andrew Marquardt, was a human resources attorney in the early 1990s. His clients were required to provide evidence they were attempting to find employment, to lessen their job loss claims. Mr. Marquardt and his clients scoured job opportunities to show every effort was being made to replace lost income. In essence, he was acting as a recruiter. The real “ah ha” moment came when he saw how happy people were to find new jobs, happily close their cases and move on to better chapters in their lives. This shift, from litigation to landing jobs, was the seed of Advantage Tech.
    With his hands-on human resources and legal background, Mr. Marquardt founded a staffing firm in the mid-1990s with his brother-in-law, David O’Brien. A veteran of the IT staffing industry, Mr. O’Brien has been instrumental in our success. For the almost 20 years, Advantage Tech has been filling thousands of jobs all over the United States and abroad. Mr. Marquardt continues to act as CEO and General Counsel, Mr. O’Brien is the COO and Mr. Mike Pitman, a seasoned veteran of the IT staffing industry, was recently brought on to serve as President.

    1. Just came across this so I missed it.
      I am looking for an Arduino user group in the Johnson County or Kansas City area.
      Anything like that available?
