NERP is not exclusively Raspberry Pi, the small computer, embedded control, electronics, special, and general interest group at Pumping Station:One in Chicago.
NERP meets alternate Mondays at Pumping Station One. We convene ~7pm and solicit for discussion topics at ~7:20pm. NERP has reason to believe that human-space meetings are preferred pretty much to the exclusion of Zoom (and jitsi) meetings. We'll skip the video part unless someone suggests otherwise. NERP is discussion driven. There may or may not be a scheduled speaker or meeting topic. Meetings are free and open to the public.
