For our 2012-06-19 meeting BALUG is proud to present:

Raspberry Pi[1], presented by Allan Cecil

A Raspberry Pi[1] is a low power $35 Linux PC the size of a deck of
cards with powerful features including hardware-accelerated h.264 video
playback at 1080p.  In this talk, Allan will present an overview of the
educational mission of the Raspberry Pi Foundation[2], available
hardware variants and accessories, precompiled Linux distributions, and
a live demo including a demonstration of XBMC playing back HD video.

Allan Cecil is the Vice President of the North Bay Linux Users Group[3]
and a Test Engineer for Cyan, Inc.[4] in Petaluma[5].

Well, don't worry we won't turn you away, but the RSVPs really help
BALUG and the Four Seas Restaurant plan the meal and meeting, and with
sufficient attendance, they also help ensure that we'll be able to eat
upstairs in the private banquet room.
