Barnes & Noble Mini Maker Faire Recap

Last weekend, we were proud to take part in the first ever Barnes & Noble Mini Maker Faire. In the United States, pretty much everyone has a Barnes & Noble Booksellers nearby, so it was a fantastic opportunity to spread the word about what we do. We hope that Barnes & Noble can continue to be a meeting place for our community.

I want to thank our volunteers who went to their local B&N to share what they do with Raspberry Pi: Robert, Chris, Jordan, Chad, Don, Kellyn, Ethan, Ron, Dustin, Cody, Taryn, Gavin, Trevor, Chris, Jim, Hal, Rex, and Brent. We’re so fortunate to have such a dedicated community and we are deeply grateful that you’re a part of it.

Here are a few photos from the event, collected from social media:
