CMAG - May 2012 - Raspberry Pi

I apologise for the late arrival of details for this meetup. However, I'm pleased to announce our speaker will be Eben Upton, a co-founder of the Raspberry Pi foundation - a charity organisation behind low-cost yet powerful hardware designed for stimulating the teaching of basic computer science in schools.


Eben will give a generic talk about the history and execution of the project, business model and the future of the device and the foundation.


Eben is responsible for the overall software and hardware architecture of the Raspberry Pi device. In his day job, he works for Broadcom as an SoC architect.

The event will be hosted on the top floor of the Fountain. We congregate on the ground floor from 7, before starting with some introductions, then the talk upstairs from 7:30. You can take us up on a complimentary drink at the bar, courtesy of Red Gate!

Thanks,

Tony

    Great meetup, friendly and informative as always. Interesting topic this week, whilst not specifically app related, the Raspberry Pi guys are looking to set up an app store of their own for kids to sell their apps for pocket money.

    Some great people to know also the talk was great. Really interesting, quite hard to ask a question though but luckily someone else asked what I wanted to ask!
