Thurs - 1/16 - Electronics open night

RPi/Linux - Command Line Basics - You can do a lot with the graphical interface on a Raspberry Pi but usually you end up having to dig a little deeper to get the most out of it. There are a lot of great tutorials out there, which show you the bare minimum, but I want to go over how things really work so it’s not just following a recipe when you have to get your hands dirty with the command line.

Tues - Monthly CAD/CAM and CNC with Fusion 360
