Tonight I had the pleasure of meeting Rob Bishop of the Raspberry Pi foundation. Rob was the first official employee of the foundation, and he has been instrument in many things Raspberry Pi. His official title is "Developer Evangelist", but I would consider him a "Senior Jack of All Trades". He's done a lot for the foundation, including setting up the super slick NOOBS OS install system. Rob is based in the UK, and Chicago was his first stop as part of an epic tour of the US. Check out this Google Plus page to see if he's coming to your neck of the woods!
Rob and I had some burgers at Kuma's Corner, which is a Chicago institution of its own right. I was worried that the heavy metal music might be an issue, but fortunately Rob has eclectic taste as well! We talked about our visions for the Pi and how the foundation works. Here are some of the things I can share from our discussion:
After dinner we went over to Pumping Station One where there was a crowded room waiting to hear Rob speak and do some Q & A on the Pi. It was a great discussion and we all learned a lot about the foundation and its goals. All in all a great night!
