Wow, we got some stuff done tonight!!
No doubt, the parts kits that Nathan and Wayne have come up with are awesome! lots of really great parts. THey each have different kits and while they have mostly the same parts there are significant differences. You should come and see!
We successfully used the 'pi to run some sample code that came with the tutorial in Nathaniel's kit. We got it! It was really cool to prove out the hardware, software and all the interconnections. It really is huge how much new stuff we exercised in order to just blink an led. But now we can move forward knowing the setup is viable!
I'll post pictures and a video after I edit them a bit. It's getting real at the tech party!!
