RPI B now beats with the heart of the RPI3!

21 11 2016

rpi-b1-2Almost unnoticed the latest incarnation of the RPI B has arrived. The RPI2 Model B v1.2 now uses the same SOC as the RPI3 the BCM2837 but does not have the WIFI and BT which can be problematic with those requiring the UART. Other differences are that it is clocked at 900MHZ rather than 1.2GHZ.

Call for action from all you don’t need to be  a superdupa programmer dude to create some value, in fact wether you are a User, developer, designer, project manager or group leader you can contribute something to the software (and other projects!!)that you use every day.

Meeting is on Thursday 30th of June at the Cock Hotel starting as usual @7pm.. See you there!
