Rob Bishop
 from the RaspberryPi Foundation is touring popular hackspaces in the US
 throughout September 2012  with the aim of giving talks and workshops

users in the local community.


He'll be coming to visit Noisebridge on Saturday, 29-September-2012  at 11am - 5pm.  The event is free, and open to all!


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 at the Raspberry Pi website.


The tour will be blogged/vlogged on the RaspberryPi website and we hope 
to attract RaspberryPi enthusiasts and hackers/makers from across the 
areas we will be visiting, allowing us to meet and support our 


The Noisebridge event will be very informal and will consist of the following; 

Workshop / Tech Demos (11am-3pm)

Rob will be giving a demonstration of the latest developments with the 
Pi as well as bringing a number of Pi's for people to play with 


This will give people a great opportunity to get advice from the Foundation and get help kickstarting Pi-based projects.


There will be a limited number of Raspberry Pi's for sale at 
Noisebridge.  But to ensure you're not disappointed by lack of 
availability, you can buy a Raspberry Pi in advance -- Rob says that 
there is now plenty of stock at MCM Electronics (http://www.mcmelectronics.com/content/en-US/raspberry-pi).


Talk (3pm)

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. Followed by a Q&A session.


Show & Tell / Prizes (4pm)

A chance for people who have started/completed projects based on the Pi 
to bring them along to do a show and tell, with prizes being given out 
for the most awesome ones shown.

  If anyone can bring a DVI or HDMI compatible monitor with them, that would be way helpful for the demos.  Also, full-sized keyboards and mouse would be helpful, too.  Thanks!
