Introduction to Raspberry Pi Workshop

Overview: Introduction to Raspberry Pi Workshop

A happy new year to everyone! What better way than to start your year learning about Raspberry Pi? The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video.

What is Raspberry Pi?

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn programming. (via Raspberry Pi website)

Interested? Then sign up, if you bring your own Raspberry Pi, it will be cheaper. :-)
