Pi-hole is a local DNS service that will sinkhole domain names that known to host malware and sometimes block ads. A very common example would be setting a mobile phone to use your local Pi-hole DNS service, that way you could browse on your mobile phone at home without any ads. Pi-hole enables users to host their own pseudo-DNS without having to learn something like BIND.
If you, like many, have a Raspberry Pi laying around – unused. This would be a perfect beginners project.
We plan on gathering virtually to demonstrate the setup process, and some beginner tips afterwards.
We will do this either through the self-hosted Jisti-meet server we have been using for the monthly meetups. Or through Zoom as a backup, if there are enough attendees to make us worry about bandwidth.
For now, we plan on meeting here: https://live.abqlug.com/PiholeEvent
Information can be found here on how to attend virtually: https://www.abqlug.com/attendee/
A step-by-step tutorial can be found here: https://www.abqlug.com/tutorials/installing-pi-hole-docker-compose-for-dummies/
We will be giving away five Raspberry Pi 3 for free!
If you already have a Raspberry Pi, we ask that you bring your own. We are strictly volunteers that are giving resources out of our own pockets.
If you always wanted to own a Raspberry Pi Single Board Computer, this is the model we are giving away.
