Raspberry Pi Complete Beginner Workshop

Missed our first Raspberry Pi Beginner Workshop? Don’t worry we got another one coming up on Wednesday, January 17th, 2018.

For domestic shipments, orders placed before December 14th at 4PM Pacific time with our Standard (and Free Shipping Option) should arrive on before December 22nd at all but the most remote locations in Canada.
