At OSCON Ignite 2012, I did a short presentation on a Raspberry Pi and integrating it with a 3D printer. Since then, I have been asked dozens of different questions, with the most common being "What is the difference between a Raspberry Pi and an Arduino?" I hope to answer that question and more! I am a hobbyist and a layperson when it comes to Raspberry Pis - there are people all over doing fantastic things with their Raspberry Pis and big brains.

Join Ed Snajder for an interactive webcast where we explore:

  • What is a Raspberry Pi
  • Difference between Raspberry Pi and an Arduino
  • Cool things being done with Raspberry Pi
  • Inspire you to make awesome things with Raspberry Pi
