About Us


We are a small group of Raspberry Pi enthusiast who would like to create a platform for the Raspberry Pi User community to learn, share and connect with each other through regular events we organize. The events are open to all regardless of age, background, competency level and location.


Why Are We Doing This


We want to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education in Malaysia through the use of Raspberry Pi. We want to emulate the success of Raspberry Pi Foundation of UK in Malaysia in promoting computer science and related sciences education. We want to focus on educational and learning activities as the foundation that will lead to other causes. We do this because we care about improving education in Malaysia and we believe we Malaysians "Boleh !".


Events We Organize


We aim to organize regular events like "Show & Tell" talks, and "Hands-On" workshops at different venues around Klang Valle.
