Re: 70+ Raspberry Pi boards given away at Qt Developer Days

Tue Dec 06, 2011 6:37 pm

As part of the initiative to put Qt 5 on Raspberry Pi, ICS gave away over 70 Raspberry Pi boards to interested developers at Qt Developer Days last week. If you were one of the lucky winners, be on the lookout over the next few days for an email from ICS so you'll know how to go about receiving it once they are available. More details and a video demo are available here: http://www.ics.com/raspberrypi

I should interrupt here before the inevitable outrage - those were VOUCHERS for Raspberry Pi boards which will be being made at the same time as the production boards, not finished devices. (The community would rip our heads off if they thought boards were being made available to 3rd parties before they had an opportunity to buy.)

Dodged a bullet there liz, I was just sharpening the proverbial pitchfork.

I'm actually very fine with that, getting boards to devs is about the best we can hope for :-)

The Onion is going to have an article about Raspberry Pi shoppers soon now...
