A review of the latest release of the Raspberry Pi


This event has been cross-posted as a Raspberry Jam Session! This will
be the first ever "BLU Jam Session". Here's an overview of what we plan
to cover:

1. A board level review of the main RPi4 components
2. A side by side comparison with other RPi models
3. A review of power and performance on the RPi4
4. We will dig into the latest distribution of Raspbian
5. We'll take a rack of RPis on a software test drive
6. We'll poke around the GPIO and other "attachables"
7. Audience Participation - What have attendees done with their RPis?
What's the newest RPi4 really good for? What's missing? What's it offer?
8. Q&A

1. Single Board Computers (ExplainingComputers.com)
2. Raspberry Jam <https://www.raspberrypi.org/jam/>
3. Raspberry Pi 4: Your tiny, dual-display, desktop computer

On-Campus Free Parking (These parking lots are free after 5pm)

The Amherst Street/E51 parking lot is the best parking option. It
probably will have plenty of spaces. During the school year the lot
tends to be full, but tends to clear out after 6:30 or 7PM.

Due to the never-ending construction, Sloan's Hermann Garage is only
accessible via Main Street. It is a small garage without a gate, and
directly under the Sloan library.

All other MIT lots require permits after hours.

The closest public parking
is Kendall Center Green Garage, next to the Marriott Hotel. The entrance is
90 Broadway Street. For other parking options, see

All Cambridge parking meters use Passport by Phone:
This is active on all Cambridge metered parking spaces. Meters are free
after 8PM
