Rob Bishop from the RaspberryPi Foundation is touring popular hackspaces in the US throughout September 2012  with the aim of giving talks and workshops  about the RaspberryPi to both hackspace members and also RaspberryPi  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  community.

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  hands-on.

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.
