The Talk

The Raspberry Pi is a credit card sized computer developed by some Cambridge boffins. In this session I'll walk you through everything you need to get up and running with it, starting from taking it out of the box, then I'll show you how to build an internet radio using Mono C# and VistaDB.

The Speaker

Gary Short [MVP C#] joined the army upon leaving school and was put on stores duty, where he was responsible for handing out the camouflage paint for trucks and tanks. As the distinctive patterned paint only came it two sizes, small for trucks and large for tanks, he soon grew tired of this work and became a hit man for Chipperfield's Circus. His mission was to track down competing circuses around the world and to kill them. This was very dangerous work as it is hard to kill a Circus, the best way being to always go for the juggler. Seeing there was no future in this Gary then drifted into programming where he pretends to know a lot about Patterns & Practices and he intends to stay in this profession until found out.
