Come join us for our first meeting of 2018, on Tuesday January 30th at 6pm. 6 years of PYPTUG!

We are starting the year with a bang as we'll have some prizes to give away:

The Official Raspberry Pi Beginners book with a Raspberry Pi Zero W computer!

Programming the Raspberry Pi book

And of course we will have food. So please RSVP! (see meetup link).

I encourage those who have some Raspberry Pi projects done to bring them along.

Thanks Frances and the "AIY guy" (demo'ing Google AIY and other RaspPi projects), for the interesting talks.  Also, I was not aware of the Spyder IDE for Python, will try it in combination with GNU Emacs.  I use Elpy mode for Python development, with the Emacs editor.

Looking forward to the next meeting!
