Event Details

Rob Bishop, their developer-evangelist, spent some of last summer visiting US hackspaces, giving Raspberry Pi talks and demonstrations. However there was only a short time that he could be out on the road for, leaving to large parts of the country that he wasn’t able to visit – and you let us know you they were not happy about that. So is seems this summer, he is going to be visiting the parts of the USA that they heard the most noise from: namely the Midwest and the Pacific Northwest.

There is a preliminary plan on that they are looking to follow and that plan puts them in our building on the 24th of August at about 7:30pm to socialize and learn about the Raspbery Pi. Most of the previous talks have have consisted of a talk, Q&A, live demos and (hopefully) some kind of competition for best Raspberry Pi hack.

A Little about Rob:
Rob Bishop was the first technical employee at Raspberry Pi and is currently one of two full time software engineers. Alongside his engineering responsibilities, Rob also acts as an "evangelist" and works to promote the educational mission of the Foundation.

Rob has given talks about the Raspberry Pi at various events worldwide, in venues ranging from conference halls to community meetings in garages.

Talk summary:
Rob Bishop, an engineer and evangelist for the Raspberry Pi Foundation, will present a talk entitled "Raspberry Pi - One Year On" that will cover both the origin story of the Raspberry Pi as well as outlining recent developments. The talk will present technical information about the Raspberry Pi alongside a discussion of the Foundation's educational aims.

Following the presentation, there will be an opportunity for an in-depth Q&A on both educational and technical matters."

Organizer

Cowtown Computer Congress

The Cowtown Computer Congress (CCCKC) was formed in 2008 to create a shared space for local technology enthusiasts to meet, collaborate on group projects, share tools and to support Kansas City’s technology community. Kansas City has a rich and diverse technology community, however unlike some major metropolitan areas such as Austin, Texas or the Bay Area there was little structure or leadership. This lack of organization has perpetuated a false perception that Kansas City and the midwest are places for those interested in technology to avoid relocating to, or to leave for the coasts as soon as possible.
