Rob Bishop, an engineer and evangelist for the Raspberry Pi Foundation, stopped by the Solid State Depot Boulder Hackerspace as part of the Raspberry Pi United States Roadshow! Rob’s talk “Raspberry Pi — One Year On” covered both the origin story of the Raspberry Pi as well as outlining recent developments. The talk presented technical information about the Raspberry Pi alongside a discussion of the Foundation’s educational aims. After the presentation, there was an opportunity for an in-depth Q&A on both educational and technical matters.
We basked in the glory of the useful little microcomputer known as the Raspberry Pi! Useful for education, hacking, productivity, and even playing games like Quake 3 Arena—rather nice for low-cost computer! Several people brought their Raspberry Pi related projects for show and tell—including a digital music keyboard synthesizer and a MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) system.
