"Environmental monitoring with a Raspberry Pi" - Luke Buskie

Precis: Growing up in the North East of Scotland I have always been interested in our unique weather system. In 2019 with an effort to learn more about computing I bought a RaspberryPi. Naturally the project that captured my attention was titled "build your own weather station" and the story begins.

I will talk to the evolution of the project over the last few years, from construction (learning to solder) access to 3D printing (Thanks Aberdeen Library) and various customizations including an air quality sensor, deploying a website, adding a camera and use of a machine learning algorithm on my dataset to generate my own temperature forecast. The learning curve has been steep, with numerous mis-steps and "if i were to do it again" anecdotes.

Bio: Luke has worked as a reservoir engineer for sixteen years primarily focused on oil and gas production forecasting and field development decisions. Following the rapidly changing computer science industry from the outside his curiosity has lead him to learn more.

This event is orgnanised by a charity - Code The City. CTC suggests a small donation to help with charity admin costs, but if this is a barrier please just change the ticket price to what you can afford.

We're now back to running physical events backed up with an online option.

If you select a physical ticket and it happens that we can not meet physically you will have to attend the Zoom session. If you choose a physical ticket and it goes ahead you will have to comply with any conditions of attendance (eg masks or social distancing) that the venue operators demand at the time.

Those attending the physical space meetup should attend at 6pm for pizza and drinks. The coding session (for online attendees) will be from 6.30pm. Doors will be locked from 6.30pm.

**If tickets are sold out please do not attend as you will be refused entry without a ticket. **

Our booking system is provided by Tito. Their platform is integrated with payment processing by Stripe
