The Raspberry Pi Foundation US Hackspace Tour is coming! Liz writes -

Rob Bishop is one of the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s developers and a super-enthusiastic tech-evangelist type. He’s volunteered to go visit a number of hackspaces in the US in a sort of Regency Grand Tour style (only with aeroplanes and a backpack full of computers) to spread the word about Raspberry Pi and to give some hands-on workshops to help kickstart your projects.

The events at each hackspace will consist of an informal talk, Q&A session, demo and hands-on workshop. He’s also going to run a show-and-tell session to allow you guys to come and share your projects with rest of the community and he’ll award prizes on behalf of the Foundation for the best project at each event; we’re also organising some small giveaways. And yes, we will be selling Raspberry Pi’s on site! Eben and I are hoping that we might be able to join him at one or two of the venues too; watch this space.

    Can you ask him to tour the UK :)

    1. Rob Bishop says:

      Hi Haydn,

      I’m constantly visiting UK hackspaces and events so haven’t organised an explicit UK ‘tour’. Get in touch via twitter (@rob_bishop) and let me know if there are any hackspaces/events you would like me to visit in your area.

    Any plans for visits to hackerspaces in the large stretch of continent between the Pacific and Atlantic coasts also known as the US? ;-)

    1. Rob Bishop says:

      Obviously I can’t visit every hackspace in the US on one trip. We’re planning more trips in the future to cover areas that aren’t on this trip.

      1. Chris C. says:

        I understand. In the meantime, I’ll be eagerly anticipating future tours in the Midwest region.
