Have you heard about the Internet of Things (IoT), Arduinos and Raspberry Pis and want to know what all the excitement is about? Did you receive an Arduino or Raspberry Pi as a gift and want to actually do something with it?

In this brief presentation, you will be introduced to the Arduino open-source electronic prototyping platform, the Raspberry Pi single-board computer hardware and software and other IoT hardware and software. You will learn what they have in common, how they differ, and some of the common uses of each.

Future sessions in this series include hands-on activities where you will learn how to install software, connect input/output devices and program the systems to do some useful, fun and amazing things!

We recommend you register for either Intro to Arduino or Intro to Raspbian Linux, depending on your area of interest, next.

Note: This event is aimed at ''noobs'' or ''newbies,'' that is, people who have no experience with IoT. If you have already built you own home automation system (or other IoT-based system), then you will very likely be bored to tears.

Under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
