The RaspberryPi Foundation is planning a tour of hackspaces in the US to give talks and workshops to those interested in hacking with the Pi.
We're coming to Noisebridge on Saturday, 29-September-2012 for an all-day event.

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.

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 our website[1].

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 hopefully consist of the following;
