Organised jointly with IET, BCS Hampshire Branch and Southampton Solent University

Learn how to use wireless networking events to control GPIO outputs on the Pi!

A hands-on 3 hour interactive workshop and lecture teaching attendees how traffic on a wireless network can be used to trigger events using a WiFi dongle and the GPIO pins on board the Raspberry Pi. For example, program your Pi to automatically turn on your kettle or central heating when it detects you coming home!

Bring your own Pi, power lead, network cable and laptop. SD cards and WiFi dongles will be provided. If you don't have a Pi, come along anyway and we'll pair you with somebody who does.
