Create a weather station with the Raspberry Pi

In this workshop you will learn how to create a weather station based on a Raspberry Pi and different sensors. Don't worry! You don't need to solder the components yourself :).

We'll start by attaching the sensors to the Raspberry Pi. After that the fun can begin and we will start retrieving information from the sensors by using Python.

To make things even more interesting we'll combine the information from all the weather stations into one big dashboard. Everyone will create a Python application to make the information available to our central machine that hosts the dashboard.

For the quick learners we have an extra challenge! Rebuild the Python code into Scala and Akka code with the help of Reactive Pi.

Prerequisite: Programming experience will help a lot, but we will start with the basics.
