Announcing Connectedly's 'A Month of Pi' Contest
My mother used to always tell me "you can't eat pie every day!". Well today I intend to prove my mother wrong by launching our A Month of Pi Contest! Even though it's #MobileFit month here at Mobile Nations, we figured that giving away some Pi wasn't necessarily a bad thing in this case. If you've ever wanted to get started with Raspberry Pi but weren't sure just where to start — here's your chance!
What is it?
With our ongoing Raspberry Pi and Arduino articles, we know some of you need some gear to follow along! As a result we've grabbed a bunch of Raspberry Pi's (Model B, 512MB) from Newark Canada for some great giveaways! What better to get into the Internet of Things than with a credit card sized mini computer?
These Raspberry Pi's even come with 8GB SD cards pre-loaded with NOOBS, so they are ready to go for your next great project!

How do I Win?
Once a week for a month (that's 4 times!) we will be giving away a free Raspberry Pi to one lucky Connectedly reader (take that mom!). That means you'll have four chances to win, though you can only win one. To enter, simply leave a comment here on what YOU would do with a Raspberry Pi! This one runs through July 11th and we'll be giving away one Pi per week until then. Good luck!!
