Raspberry Pi Early Edition! Meet+Greet Rob Bishop of The RasPi Foundation!

  • September 21, 2012 · 3:00 PM

An earlier in the day and smaller version of the Raspberry Pi event going on later in the day.

In this special-edition Open Craft Night, we welcome Rob Bishop of Raspberry Pi, the $35 open-source ARM Linux box. That's right, a developer of the groundbreaking Arduino-sized computer* will grace the space for an all-night special event.

Rob Bishop is one of the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s developers and a super-enthusiastic tech-evangelist type. He's on a mission, Regency Grand Tour style and armed with a backpack full of computers, to spread the word about Raspberry Pi and to give some hands-on workshops.

Agenda includes:

  • Informal talk
  • Q&A session
  • Demo and hands-on workshop
  • Show-and-tell session, complete with prizes
  • Giveaways and door prizes
  • Actual raspberry pie to eat

You'll learn about the Raspberry Pi, the computer-on-a-board that blows the Arduino to pieces and enables some alarmingly sophisticated projects. Rob helped develop the damn thing, and you'll learn what it takes to turn a project into a product.

*As in, runs a desktop operating system, can connect a mouse, can output to a monitor. For $3 more than an Arduino!

NOTE: We've had to limit RSVPs due to popularity. Please update your RSVP if you won't be able to make it so that others can attend.  Please do RSVP for the waitlist, we will try to raise the limit as the event gets closer.

    Hey Pierre,

    Raspberry Pi's are on backorder again, we'll be doing what we can to get as many as possible to be available that night, but we can't guarantee anything.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
