Two Pythonistas, one city break, one challenge: re-create a train announcement board on a RaspberryPi-powered LCD
This talk will tell our story – two friends who were curious what trains
were going past one of their houses every five minutes.
Rather than buy an over-priced Windows-powered monstrosity(!), we'll
explain how we built an open-source train announcement board using an
LCD display, powered by a RaspberryPi. We'll run through how we started
with way too grand a plan, how we de-scoped the project and how we built
it over the course of a weekend city break. Naturally, the talk will end
with a demo!
Attendees should come to learn what it takes to scrape train data and
present it on a RaspberryPi LCD but stay to hear about coding city
I would like to work with open source projects to create a branch of the tree with all
of the best videos for your open source project. Please
send me an email if you are interested.
