Presentation – Greg Trasuk, VA3TSK

BARC member, Greg Trasuk (VA3TSK) will be doing a presentation at the Hamilton Internet of Things meetup on Nov 30.  He’ll be talking about interfacing real world inputs and outputs to the Raspberry Pi using GPIO.

One thing that should be mentioned – the location is on the fourth floor of an old building in downtown Hamilton, and there’s no elevator, so anyone mobility-challenged might have some difficulty.
