February General Meeting

Raspberry Pi Show and Tell

Coordinator: Matt Mulrooney

Raspberry Pi

What have people been doing lately with the Raspberry Pi? Our February meeting will consist of a series of five-minute lightning presentations. If you are interested in presenting, please directly contact the event co-ordinator: matt (at)

Meeting Format

Duration: Your presentation is limited to 5 minutes. When the bell sounds, we throw the next presenter on stage.

  • This may seem harried, but it's a lot of fun.
  • Give us a taste of your Pi project - share the essence of the thing!
  • Keep the words to a minimum.
  • And one massive advantage of this format: it will take less than an hour to rehearse your presentation five times.

Slide auto-advance: If you provide slides, they will be fed to a robot, and it will auto-advance at 20-second intervals.

  • thus 15-slides maximum.

Question period:

  • There will not be time allotted for questions, so we're building in intermissions.
  • The intermissions will give you time to question the presenters or buzz amongst yourselves.


Don't stress that your project isn't cool enough, or only needs two minutes. The more the merrier! Short and sweet is great.

We are opening this up to the wider Calgary community. Please invite your non-CUUG friends to send in a proposal.
