Tuesday April 24th — Featured Technical Speaker:
Chris Tyler will be speaking at 12:45 – 1:45 pmin Room 1206 in the SEQ Building: Seneca@York. Come and learn all about the revolutionary ARM processors; the spectrum of applications it is suited for; and the role of OpenSource, Fedora, and Seneca College in all of this. Please check out this article from the Toronto Star: www.thestar.com/business/article/1138709--35-computer-with-toronto-designed-software-sells-out-worldwide-in-minutes.
Chris will talk about the Raspberry Pi on one end of the ARM computing spectrum, and ARM in the enterprise data centre on the other end. The Centre for Development of Open Technology (CDOT) within Seneca College works with the Fedora ARM group within the Fedora Project to produce a build of Fedora for ARM devices. The $35 Raspberry Pi hardware went on sale last week, and as with every other event related to the Pi, pandemonium ensued! It's front page news in the Toronto Star, its featured on CBC, and the mainstream media is starting to take note. It even beat out Lady Gaga as a worldwide Twitter trend!
The Raspberry Pi is a credit card-sized motherboard, sold without a case, which can be connected to a TV, monitor, mouse or keyboard. It will include an Ethernet port, and 2 USB ports. It features an ARM 700 MHz CPU, 256 MB RAM and a removable SD-card for storage. It runs an open-source software built at Toronto's Seneca College, by a team under the leadership of Chris Tyler.The fact that it sells for $35 heralds a new era of computing.
