Test and Experience New Raspberry Pi 5 for Internet-in-a-Box (IIAB)[edit]

Are you looking to experience the power of the new Raspberry Pi 5 for Internet-in-a-Box (IIAB)? If so, you've come to the right place! This online event will be your chance to get hands-on with the latest technology and see how it can help you create a powerful offline learning and knowledge resource. I am thankful to the Raspberry Pi Foundation, UK, for selecting my event and providing the Raspberry Pi 5 for testing under the 'Experience Raspberry Pi 5' program[1].

In this online event, you will learn how to:

  • Set up Raspberry Pi 5 with the latest IIAB software
  • Install and configure essential applications and services
  • Hardware performance test
  • Access the IIAB library from any device
  • Manage and maintain your IIAB installation
  • Explore the many ways you can use IIAB to improve your life and the lives of others

Who should attend?[edit]

This event is perfect for:

  • Educators and community leaders who want to provide offline learning opportunities
  • Individuals who want to reduce their dependence on the internet
