Raspberry Pi User Group (Tue. 13 Aug, 2019 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm)

The Robert C. Byrd Institute (RCBI) is hosting its monthly Raspberry Pi User Group meeting in its Maker Vault. The regular RCBI meetups-which occur the second Tuesday of each month- assemble individuals who are familiar with digital technology to encourage and support newbies who are also interested in creative, fun projects using a combination of talent, tools and Pi technology. Whether you’re already an expert or just curious about programming and use of the ultra-affordable devices, join us at RCBI Huntington (1050 Fourth Avenue) to explore different versions of the Pi hardware and software, and focus on popular uses of the small computers. The group will assist you in getting your own Raspberry Pi up and running as well as working on collective projects. Participants should bring a Raspberry Pi and we’ll provide the expertise.

The Robert C. Byrd Institute (RCBI) is partnering with Ohio University’s LIGHTS Regional Innovation Network to offer two free workshops to help small business owners and entrepreneurs understand how to use value proposition and business models to develop their ideas, products and services. The Small Business IDEAation Workshop will be Wednesday, Aug. 21, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Instructors from the LIGHTS Network will provide a hands-on introduction to the Strategyzer Value Proposition Canvas. Participants will learn how to use the canvas to help them clearly explain their ideas, critically assess how their ideas create value for their customers and assess their competition. Participants may register for this workshop at www.rcbi.org/go/IDEAation.

The following week, on Wednesday, Aug. 28, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., the Small Business VALIDation Workshop will walk participants through the Strategyzer Business Model Canvas. The instructor will help participants take the information they learned from the previous week’s value proposition workshop and develop a strategy to deliver their products or services. The workshop will help participants map out their ideas, uncover opportunities and differentiate themselves from their competition. Participants may register for this workshop at www.rcbi.org/go/VALIDation.

Both workshops will be at RCBI Huntington (1050 Fourth Avenue). Lunch will be provided.
