MAKE’s 2nd International Maker Meetup: @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
Check out the upcoming International Maker Meetup from MAKE:
We are excited to announce our second International Maker Meetup taking place around the globe and in our very own MAKE office Jan. 17 from 6-8pm PST. The theme of this meetup will be Raspberry Pi.
We’ll be inviting the community over for a little show and tell as we celebrate the release of MAKE’s latest issue and Matt Richardson and Shawn Wallace’s new book, Getting Started with Raspberry Pi. We’re also inviting U.S. and international maker communities to join us online.
We’ll be hosting in-house Raspberry Pi demos and a live Google+ hangout on air to share with the world what we’re doing and to talk to makers and Raspberry Pi aficionados from far and wide.
Come and share your passion for making and Raspberry Pi with an international community. To host your own meetup, we suggest getting together at convenient locations such as a hackerspace, cafe, community center, library, or restaurant. Bring your laptops, tablets, smartphones to access the internet. For more information and to RSVP please click right here.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
