Syracuse Tech Week 2019 Hosted a Raspberry Pi Day #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
This past week Syracuse has been hosting its Tech Week 2019. Billed as:
…the longest community-driven, technology focused event in Syracuse NY. Hundreds of people will be coming together to learn, support, and celebrate Syracuse’s growing interest and passion for science and technology.
On Wednesday they dedicated the event to Pi day!:
This day is dedicated to the Raspberry Pi, and a variety of science kits that use them – displaying what it is and how they work. You will be able to learn about this latest technology craze, why everyone is using the it, and see a variety of accessories. The room will be filled with tech talks, exhibits, demonstrations, discussions, trunk sales, meet & greet, Solve-It challenges, interviews, Pitch-It platform, Quiz corner, and workshop corner.
Sounds like an excellent event! We hope to hear more about the awesome projects that came out of Tech Week!
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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
