We ran a Raspberry Pi Workshop a few weeks ago in Shanghai. Many thanks to Craig Curtis for really making this happen!
During the workshop, we attempted to do the Python intro found here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/learning/python-intro/
…and we ran into problems when we ran the command: wget http://goo.gl/0ZDOdX -O intro.py –no-check-certificate
We discovered that this short link was calling Google, which is blocked in China. So, we couldn’t get the file that way. Thought I would share this to see if anyone else has had this same problem or has a possible solution.
In the meantime, enjoy the little highlight video I made with the footage Craig’s wife took. Thanks again to everyone who helped and attended!
