Melbourne Pi User Group

The Melbourne (Raspberry) Pi User Group aims to cater to those interested in the Raspberry Pi™. The group's aim is to bring like minded people together to talk about how they're using these remarkable single board computers.


It's usually on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 7:30pm to 9:30pm

NOTE: For September, we've moved the date forward one week to the 12th of September, 2017.

Note: The computer lab is located to the rear of the school. You'll need to park in the car parks at the front and then (get hopelessly lost trying to) find the entrance to the computer lab. Click on the map to alleviate some of the chances of getting lost.


The Group is open to anyone interested in the Raspberry Pi (and other single board computers). The group is for people over the age of 16, and would especially welcome anyone coming from an educational perspective.

No experience is necessary, just an interest in learning and exploring.


I'm sure you've got questions.

Obtaining a Raspberry Pi

The school has a stock of Raspberry Pis and all the bits and ppieces you're need and you're most welcome to purchase these at the same cost I buy them for the students. Of course, there's other places you can buy them (search the internet). You don't need a Raspberry Pi to attend, but it might be useful to have one.

The use of the schools computer lab means that we have access to screens, keyboards, mice, power supplies, projectors and all the bits and pieces we need.


While the group is not being run by Melbourne Rudolf Steiner School, I teach at the school, using Raspberry Pi's with the Year 10 students (and elsewhere), and would like to thank the school for there generous support in allowing the group to run out of the school's Computer Lab.
