Starting from a brief presentation of the "raisons d’être" the tiny educationally-motivated computer, we’ll explore some of the different tools and uses available "out of the box" on the Pi.

With educational (GCompris), productivity (Libre Office), creative (Scratch), artistic (Sonic Pi) suites as well as applications around robotics (Poppy Ergo Jr), environnement (weather station), home automation (Gladys), electronics (Arduino), the goal will be to have a rapid discovery of the platform so as to be able to have the basic keys to return home and continue the discovery of the world of FLOSS.

The hope is, by becoming familiar with all these possibilities, to see just how accessible these and other solutions are here and now for us.
