You've heard about the Raspberry Pi but haven't got your hands on one yet? Well we have so if you want to try it out bring your own SD card to the next Digital Skills Workshop at UCD and use it to run a Raspberry Pi.

  1. All you need is 1 (one) 4GB or greater SD memory card.
  2. To complete the HOMEWORK below you will also need access to a PC or a Mac with an SD card reader to write the .img file to your SD card using disk imaging software.
  3. HOMEWORK: CAREFULLY follow the Quick start guide to install the SD card image on your own SD card. The community on the Raspberry Pi Wiki has also written a guide for beginners on how to set up your SD card. ( Follow these instructions CAREFULLY.
  4. For added value install Minecraft Pi edition!
  5. Bring your imaged SD card to the Collaborative Space, Room Q107, Quinn Building, Belfield, on Monday March 11, 2013 from 3:00 to 4:00pm.

And if you didn't succeed in imaging your own SD card we might even try and help you do it at the workshop.
