Python for Asteroids, Using NASA's Open API

Python for Asteroids, Using NASA's Open API

Advance RSVP is available to Primary Entry badge types only. Walk-ups may be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

NASA maintains an extensive open database that's served by an API. This workshop will examine the open API structure, use Python to call for data, and construct some simple projects based on the call made. The session is hands-on and can be run on a number of device platforms. We'll look at some culminating projects with RaspberryPi and explore getting web data to a physical computing output like an LED or servo.
