Meet Rob Bishop from Raspberry Pi Foundation (Torrance)

  • Oct 3, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Rob Bishop is one of the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s developers and a super-enthusiastic tech-evangelist type. He’s volunteered to visit a number of hackspaces in the US in a sort of Regency Grand Tour style (only with aeroplanes and a backpack full of computers) to spread the word about Raspberry Pi and to give some hands-on workshops to help kickstart your projects.

The events at each hackspace will consist of an informal talk, Q&A session, demo and hands-on workshop. He’s also going to run a show-and-tell session to allow you guys to come and share your projects with the rest of the community and he’ll award prizes on behalf of the Foundation for the best project at each event; we’re also organizing some small giveaways. And yes, we will be selling Raspberry Pi’s on site!

The sign-ups for the events are being handled by the hackspaces themselves, so please go and visit their websites and/or sign-up pages if you want to attend. While you’re there we encourage you to sign-up to their mailing lists so that you keep up to date and find out about other hacker/maker events in your local area.

    Can someone post the "link for the hackspace website"? I'd like to find out details about the Torrance event. Thanks.

      The event is in Fullerton; I don't see any info on their site http://23b.org/­ or their FB page https://www.facebook.c...­ but I posted the question for you on FB.

      Yeah, I'm not sure why they said to check their site if it's not on there. Hmmm....

    Wonder if anyone would film this and post on youtube?

      I was thinking they will go through architecture of the hardware, but ended up in a general discussion, which was also good. They did not sell the Raspberry Pi.

    This is not in Torrance and people gets confused by the heading...

    Instead this is in Fullerton, Ca whic is ~30 miles far away from Torrance.

    Am i reading wrong?

    Both events are identical - so you only need to attend one.

    Are day 1 and 2 the same? I have a C++ class on Tuesdays that conflicts with day 1.

      Nevermind, different locations. 1 will do :)
