Raspberry Pi Christmas

‘Tis December 20th, 2016. The season of joy and all things magical are upon us. On this day I didn’t have much to do for the first time in a long time. I ended up on my sofa, mobile in hand, mindlessly scrolling through Facebook as we all do. I decided to have a look at what was happening in the land of Pi. I went over to The Raspberry Pi Foundations official Facebook page. Let’s be honest, it would be a Christmas miracle if I came across an announcement of a new Raspberry Pi. In the end though, no such luck. Pretty soon however, this year changed to a Raspberry Pi Christmas.

While I was browsing the Facebook page I noticed there were quite a lot of Raspberry Pi related questions and nobody was answering. I took it upon myself to help some of the people out with my experiences relating to their questions. The next day, Alex J’rassic hit me up on Twitter thanking me for my help on their Facebook page and that I should drop her an email. This is what I did. Alex informed the that she and the Foundation would like to send me some goodies to say thank you for my help. “Tis the season of giving after all” she said.

I’m not going to bore you with all the things that happened in between regarding the delivery but, secretly I was really hoping there would be a Raspberry Pi Zero in the package as I have been struggling for more than a year to get one in South Africa. Just have a look at what was delivered to me today:

The goodie bag included:

  • Raspberry Pi 3
  • Sense HAT
  • Raspberry Pi Zero
  • Camera
  • IR Camera
  • Case
  • Various connectors for the Raspberry Pi Zero
  • Camera Ribbon Cable
  • A t-shirt which I will wear with pride
  • Carry bag
  • Stickers
  • A hand written note from Alex Bate herself

I would really like to thank Alex Bate and the Raspberry Pi Foundation for this huge gift. You guys are awesome! Really. I will definitely be using these in my projects and I will let you know what I make.

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! I know I did.
