Challenges with Raspberry Pi in Shanghai


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:

 …and we ran into problems when we ran the command: wget -O –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!
