Looking forward to meeting you, Mark. You're the only one from this cohort coming from Florida and I don't believe we have any Raspberry Pi Certified Educators there yet (though I could be wrong). I do know of a few community members and Raspberry Pi enthusiasts in Central Florida and Miami, however.markmeyers wrote:Anyone else from Florida attending? Maybe I'll be the very first Raspberry Pi Certified Educator in the state!
That's awesome, Sam!spatterson67 wrote:Hello, I am Sam and I am super excited about meeting you all Face to Face this weekend. My school is REALLY close to the training site, so I would like to invite y'all to hang out on Sat. evening. This is a low key sit around and play with stuff kind of evening.

Sounds great!spatterson67 wrote:
6?-8pm Makerspace Meetup
The Pi Academy Cohort is invited to stop by Sam Patterson's Makerspace at Gideon Hauser Jewish Day School (directions will be available during the day on Sunday)
Remodeled last summer, this 2 room space hosts a giant roll down green screen, puppet making, pi computing, 3d printing and some fun consumer-level robots and drones.
I booked a car with my flight and got it for $60 total. My wife and I will be staying at a hotel in Mountain view, not sure how far from the venue. I teach Photography in Pasadena, CA.caeducator wrote:Soooo excited, tickets are booked! My flight comes in at 1:45 I believe, I think I'm going to get a shuttle to hotel since it looks like car rentals start out at $100 a day! Insane! I plan to uber back and forth unless someone lives in the area and can pick or drop me off. Also I teach Science in Arcadia, CA and we just started our weekly Hack the Pi series, where students basically get to create various projects using python etc.

Just received the email yesterday afternoon that I was selected to attend Picademy Mountain View in February. I can't explain how excited I am. I teach IT Hardware at a high school in Wichita KS and to be honest, I am a total NOOB! I look forward to working with everyone.
Looking forward to meeting everyone there.
