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 will consist 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 listed 20 tickets. Make.SI runs out of a small garage at the moment, so we are limited on space. If it says tickets sold out, you can still come, just don't expect a seat!
When & Where
If you have an HDMI monitor, mouse, and keyboard that you can bring to the event, please do! Also, it would probably be good to have a Pi! The event will be less of a presentation and more of a workshop where we will be hacking and showing off our Pi's.
