Hi Everyone and Happy New Year!
It’s my hope that everyone had a joyous and happy holiday, with the opportunity to spend time with friends, family, and have fun!
We kick off a new calendar year with two sets of presentations.
Firstly, I will be doing a little bit of a “show and tell” – where I’ll be showing the Raspberry Pi 2 – the new and improved version of the Raspberry Pi, and I’m also going to introduce to everyone the new “Kangaroo” PC – a $149 Windows 10 computer. That’s right $149.
After the break, I’ll be continuing with Session 2 of Introduction to computer networking. We will be focusing in on understanding the IP address, and continue to use our post office analogy to get a better understanding how the IP address plays a role.
If you have a computer that can join the wireless nework, then by all means bring it. Part of the session will cover the “domain name system” or DNS – what translates a numberical IP address to “www.google.ca”. I will be showing you a utility called “nslookup” that will show you how domain names get converted to IP addresses.
See you on Tuesday!
