RaspberryPi Foundation visits Alpha One Labs
Sunday, September 23, 2012 from 12:15 PM to 6:15 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
The RaspberryPi Foundation is visiting Alpha One Labs September 23rd and giving talks and workshops about the RaspberryPi to both members and RaspberryPi users in the local community.
In case you haven't heard of them, the Raspberry Pi Foundation is a charitable organisation founded with the aim of promoting the study of computer science and related topics, especially at school level. The Foundation is responsible for the design and sales of the popular RaspberryPi single board computer. You can find out more about the Foundation and the RaspberryPi here.
The plan for the event consists of the following;
RaspberryPi: Past, Present & Future - An introduction to the RaspberryPi, including an overview of its history and development, details on the technical specification and an outline of future developments with many cool tech demos along the way. Followed by a Q&A session.
A chance to demonstrate various OS's, new revisions of the Pi and the latest add-on expansion hardware.
A Taste of RaspberryPi - A chance to play with the RaspberryPi hands-on.
Show & Tell / Prizes:
An opportunity to display RaspberryPi projects from the community with prizes for notable projects.
The tour will be blogged/vlogged on the RaspberryPi website and will hopefully attract RaspberryPi enthusiasts and hackers/makers from across the areas we will be visiting, providing your hackspace with lots of worldwide publicity.
We now have an additional slot because the 3:15pm to 6:15pm slot is sold out. Please register for the 12:15pm - 3:15pm slot.
