Raspberry Pi and SBC Short Takes

Date and Time

Wednesday, January 15, 2020 from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm


MIT Building E-51, Room 315

Several short presentations about the Raspberry Pi 4 and other SBCs


Several short talks by Brian, Federico, and Bob.

Brian DeLacey discusses and demos the latest Raspberry Pi 4 developments and news about IPFS. Demos will cover power saving RPi firmware updates, a recent Raspbian release, and using the RPi as a “dual HDMI daily driver”. Now the RPi4 is an even “cooler board”, and we'll try to solve the mystery of leaking radio frequency. We'll also discuss how to use IPFS and RPi to “pin down” the latest developments on the distributed web. This is DeLacey's fourth in an ongoing series of short talks about the RPi.

New IoT Hardware: Federico Lucifredi will review the capabilities of the brand new 64-bit SheevaPlug that just landed in his lab.


Federico Lucifredi is The Ceph Storage Product Management Director at Red Hat, formerly the Ubuntu Server PM at Canonical, and the Linux “Systems Management Czar” at SUSE.
Bob Frankston is probably best known as co-creator of the original spreadsheet application, VisiCalc. His detailed bio is at []
