Thanks to everyone who attended my presentation at LinuxFest Northwest 2013 on Sunday. The presentation was an overview of how to connect your Raspberry Pi to the outside world using the GPIO.

Keep up to date on our future happens with the events page. The page lists upcoming events that Low Voltage Labs will be attending as well as events we’ve attended in the past.
This year at the Seattle and Portland Mini Maker Faires I did a presentation on getting started with designing your own PCB using KiCAD. In this presentation as an example I created a pumpkin shaped PCB with a candle like flickering LED.
Here are the KiCAD schematic and PCB layout files to use as the starting point for your own project:
