Raspberry Pi at KansasFest

Posted Sat, Jul. 6th 2013 in News

The Raspberry Pi is a popular, inexpensive single board computer.  What does this have to do with the Apple II?  Who would be crazy enough to interface a Raspberry Pi with an Apple II?  Ivan Drucker, David Schmenk, and Charles Mangin have done just that.  Ivan turned his Raspberry Pi into an AppleTalk file server and a portable Apple II emulator.  David upgraded his Apple IIc to a IIgs using a Raspberry Pi.  Charles connected his Apple keyboards to a Raspberry Pi.  Don’t miss the recent Juiced.GS article on this topic.

KansasFest starts in only 17 days.  Ivan will be there to show us how to use the Raspberry Pi with the Apple II.  He’ll present three sessions: “So what is the Raspberry Pi, anyway?”, “A2SERVER Redux: This Time, with Pi”, and “Apple II in the Cloud”.
