About Raspberry Pi Day

Goals of the Event

The goal of Raspberry Pi Day is to educate people about this small, amazing, inexpensive computer. Attendees will have the opportunity to try out the Raspberry Pi and build projects. Active modders, in the Raspberry Pi community, will join us as well via Google Hangout! There will be opportunities to get free stuff like shirts, keychains, and other swag. If you are brave enough, get a pie in the face and you'll get a free Raspberry Pi computer from ITMO!
