In this Verktøykassen (the Toolbox), we will make video players of Raspberry Pi mini computers. The video player is very easy to use: You just need to put a video file into a memory stick and it will automatically start playing the video in loop when it starts up. The video player will be able to play video files up to 1080p.
The course leader Stian Remvik will make a setup (Desktop image) beforehand, that we add to the SD card in your Raspberry Pi during the workshop. If you do not have your own Raspberry Pi, you can still learn how to add Desktop image yourself. Desktop image will be posted on toolbox.bek.no.
Thursday November 7th at 11.00 – 15.00: Today’s theme – Video player with Raspberry Pi
Registration by Tuesday November 5th to firstname.lastname@example.org Please let us know of questions and/or issues that you wish to address in Verktøykassen (beyond today’s theme). Bring your own laptop.
Friday November 8th at 10.00 – 16.00: Open verktøykasse
Work on your project, get feedback, look into other people’s projects, learn and discuss! The course leader will be available during parts of the day. No registration, and you don’t have to have attended the course on Thursday.
Verktøykassen is free and open to everyone, and will be held in Norwegian and/or English as needed.
Verktøykassen (the toolbox) is BEK’s new meeting place to learn about and try out technical tools, be it both hardware and software. There is a low threshold for participation and a high hands-on factor. Each time, a new “theme of the day” is launched, and the participants can come with inputs or questions that are raised jointly. The toolbox will take place regularly throughout the spring, and is led by game developer and programmer Stian Remvik.
