Hi there,

Last time when I received my Raspberry PI from Shunfeng Express. I was told by the delivery man he had several pi on hand to deliver. I know from this there are definitely some Pi users in Shanghai.

Do you wanna to gather and talk on RPI by replying on this post? :D

Cheers,

That's my hometown !!
But unfortunately I am not there.
I haven't got my little 'Pi' yet, but I know I have to get one!
Would love to share experiences and ideas thru the Internet though! And let me know how your tinkering goes :P

Cheers!!

Shanghai calling!

I am introducing the RPi to the students at my A level school near Fudan University in Sept. It's going to be an after school club. I have just taken delivery of mine and got it up and running. The peripherals are so cheap here. I just picked up a new keyboard, new mouse and new power cable all for under £4. If my trials go well over the summer I will be buying a handful of the Chinese ones from Taobao (Chinese version of eBay).

I have already bought a camera and motion sensor although after reading some earlier posts I believe there are some fake ones out there (surely not - this is China!). As they say here "If it can be made, it can be copied".

So I am looking for some other people in Shanghai to troubleshoot with and to exchange ideas. I have persauded the man in my local second hand PC kiosk to buy one and he is going to but we don't share a common language well enough to help each other.

Is there anyone out there? It's a big city - surely I am not alone.

Yes, we get red ones here in China but green ones are freely available on Taobao. I am introducing the RPi to the kids at school so I decided to get a green one so it looks difference to the ones the kids have. You can get a green one the next day for just over £21. http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a23 ... s=1#detail whereas the Chinese red ones are a bit more expensive.

Eben and I are visiting China for a press trip in August, and we'll be visiting Shanghai as part of that. There's a Raspberry Pi Users Forum at RS Components' head office in Shanghai on August 11 in the evening, where we're looking forward to meeting local users; I'm not sure how you would go about getting tickets (I can't read Chinese!), but I'm sure that if you email or call RS in Shanghai they can sort you out.

There are a lot red B on Aliexpress but I couldn't find any red B+.
