1st Raspberry Pi Club Meetup at Ipoh
What Is This About
The first meetup outside of Klang Valley at the heritage area of Ipoh Old Town. A historical event for the club at the historical city of Ipoh, we will introduce Raspberry Pi, demonstrate it's capabilities and meet with Ipoh Raspberry Pi folks.
In this session, we will:
- Share some background and history of Raspberry Pi
- Demonstrate Raspberry Pi and how to setup (if time permits)
- Demonstrate projects done using Raspberry Pi
Who Should Attend
- People who are completely new to Raspberry Pi with little or no computer skills but wanted to find out what wonderful things the Pi can do
- Students thinking to build their project using Raspberry Pi
- Pi Fans who are doing similar projects looking for inspiration or solution to a technical problem
- Anyone who wants to be inspired that they too can build useful things using Raspberry Pi
We are a small group of Raspberry Pi enthusiast who would like to create a platform for the Raspberry Pi User community to learn, share and connect with each other through regular events we organize. The events are open to all regardless of age, background, competency level and location.
Why Are We Doing This
We want to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education in Malaysia through the use of Raspberry Pi. We want to emulate the success of Raspberry Pi Foundation of UK in Malaysia in promoting computer science and related sciences education. We want to focus on educational and learning activities as the foundation that will lead to other causes. We do this because we care about improving education in Malaysia and we believe we Malaysians "Boleh !".
Events We Organize
We aim to organize regular events like "Show & Tell" talks, and "Hands-On" workshops at different venues around Klang Valle. We are not limiting ourselves to Klang Valley but this is our starting point. We recognize each individual or group have different needs and interest. Therefore, each event will be designed to focus on the needs or interest of a specific target audience group.

• learn more about Raspberry Pi
