Tomorrow is the day for MAKE’s second International Maker Meetup. This time the event will focus on all things Raspberry Pi. We’ll have an open-house, community event at MAKE’s HQ where we’ll be serving up slices of raspberry pie (aren’t we clever?) as well as several tasty Raspberry Pi projects. We’ll also be featuring projects from MAKE’s latest issue–Volume 33: Software for Makers. All meetup attendees will receive a free PDF of the new issue.

The event kicks off at 6pm PST with a live Google+ hangout on air with a great panel of guests that will include none other than Eben Upton of Raspberry Pi, the folks from Adafruit, Matt Richardson and Shawn Wallace (authors of Getting Started with Raspberry Pi, the editors of MAKE, and dozens of hackerspaces and meetups from around the world.  If you’re into Raspberry Pi, the hangout and meetup are not to be missed. Tune in right here.

Also during the hangout, I’ll be picking five winners for our Raspberry Pi starter kits. How do you enter the drawing?
