New York, New York!

Eben and I are headed back to the US on Wednesday. We’ve got meetings on Thursday and Friday in New York, then we’ll be at Maker Faire in Brooklyn on Saturday. Eben’s giving a talk on the Live Stage this year about the first, terrifying six months of Raspberry Pi. You’ll also be able to buy Raspberry Pis in the Maker Shed.

I can’t believe it’s only been a year. Maker Faire NY was the first large event of this kind that the Raspberry Pi Foundation did back in 2011, way before we started shipping. Our world has shifted seismically since then; Eben’s talk’s going to be a good one. We’re really looking forward to it, and we’re looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible. Please come and say hi if you see us; we get a real kick out of meeting you and talking Pi. Eben’s talk will be live streamed on Make’s G+ page, so if you can’t make it, you can still watch.

The meeting I’m looking forward to the most is one we’re planning on doing over dinner, with Limor “LadyAda” Fried and Phil Torrone from Adafruit; we’re going to be talking about Adafruit’s amazing work with the Raspberry Pi, and what we can do together in the future. Their most recent announcement has been a WebIDE for Raspberry Pi, currently in Alpha development. Take a look:

You can read more about Adafruit’s Raspberry Pi WebIDE over on their blog.

Eben and I are also hanging around over the next week; we’re seeing some friends in DC and having yet more meetings, then we’ll be driving south, stopping at a few hackspaces on the way. I’m not allowed to publicise these events until the hackspaces we’ve been talking to can figure out if they can handle walk-ins for fire safety reasons, but you’ll be able to read all about it in the next couple of days.
