Raspberry Pi has announced it is to present at TEDxGranta - will there be any tickets left?

Eben Upton, co-founder of Raspberry Pi, will be taking part in TEDxGranta: 2012 Alive and Kicking at the Cambridge Junction on Friday 9 March.

There was a handful of tickets left when this was published, but since Raspberry Pi tweeted it would be appearing only minutes ago, people may be left empty-handed.

Upton will be speaking about the foundation’s efforts to get cheap, disposable and effective computers into the hands of school children alongside other distinguished thought leaders including Tim Hayward, the saviour of Fitzbillies Cakeshop, and Kirsten Lavers, founder of FLACK in Cambridge.

It will even feature a demonstration of blind folded Kung Fu from Ross Sargent, head of Cambridge Kung Fu.

Speaking to Cabume, Sue Keogh from the TEDxGranta team said, "There's been such a buzz around Raspberry Pi in the last few weeks since the product went on sale so it's a real honour to have Eben Upton speaking at TEDxGranta 2012.

“It's also going to be a rare opportunity for people to see this incredible hardware up close, as you can't get hold of one for love nor money right now.”

The event runs from 9am to 5pm and if the handful of tickets are still there, they can be bought for £60 from http://tedxgrantakicking.eventbrite.com/
