Will this be available later on-line just to view, as this is in the middle of the working day for me so although I would love to attend, I can't.
What is Eben holding?
It looks like an alpha board with the Broadcom logo.
Is there some sort of embargo on photos of the production board?
Some peope would actually prefer the alpha board go into production,
because it has more GPIO pins, and uses about 40% less power,
but I doubt that's the reason for continuing to use it in publicity photos.
I'm not sure, but i'd love at least one of the subjects of the photo to be in focus
Eben's presentation will be available afterward to all element14 members. I'll be sure to post back to the Raspberry Pi group with a link when it's available.
That's great, thank you. I'd love to watch live but my employer would have other ideas !
Is the link for the first webinar available yet
Sandra, The video and slides can be found here: http://www.element14.com/community/groups/technology-training-webinars?view=documents
The Q&A (unofficial) is here: http://www.element14.com/community/thread/17661?start=7&tstart=0
In the video, at 36:18, Eben says that any questions he doesn't have time to get to,
he will publish answers for on the webinar web site, but that apparently hasn't happened yet.
We're thrilled to announce that Eben Upton, co-founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, will be presenting an exclusive webinar on getting started with the Raspberry Pi. I know a lot of you are still waiting for your units, but there has been a lot of interest from engineers about how to get started once their board arrives. The webinar is completely free, and you just need to become a member on element14 to sign up for it. At the end of the webinar, you'll have a chance to ask Eben specific questions about Raspberry Pi.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and we hope you enjoy this element14 event!
Programming the Raspberry Pi in less than 40 minutes with Eben Upton
When you receive your Raspberry Pi, what will you do with it, how will you use it and what can it do for you? The possibilities are only limited by the imagination, so to help you get up and running quickly, in this live session I’ll talk you through the simple set up procedure for the Raspberry Pi.
You'll learn how to--
- download and install the Operating System on the SD card
- run the boot up script
- use the script editor and begin to create applications using the presupplied Python scripts
All in less than 40 minutes.
This Design Flow webinar will demonstrate how Raspberry Pi users can get their unit up and running and begin their programming revolution.
