Just thought you might be interested in either or both events at Science Gallery. I'm helping them run the Pi workshop on Saturday with folks who helped out in the Coding Grace Intro to Pi workshop back in Jan
The workshop is open to everyone. :-D
MAKING A COMPUTER: EBEN UPTON, CO-INVENTOR OF THE RASPBERRY PI
THURSDAY, APRIL 3, 2014 - 18:00 TO 19:15
€5 - PRE-BOOKING ESSENTIAL
Most kids don't program computers anymore. Eben Upton co-invented the Raspberry Pi, a tiny and affordable computer, so that kids could rediscover the satisfaction you get when you write your own programs. Over two million Raspberry Pis have been sold since the company launched in 2012, and there have been several prototypes along the way. Hosted by Newstalk's resident techie JESSICA KELLY, we'll be asking Eben how failing better helped shape each new model.
