    Just to clear, is the cost listed on the registration page the actual cost of the course or is it free?  I'm not clear on the wording.

    @aptivadave: The cost is for the subsidized hardware, which is required for the course. I don't believe there's a course only (i.e. if you have the ward already) option, given this snip"Your registration will be confirmed once payment for this event has been made..."

    I too already have the hardware required for this course and would love a course only option. Will the course content be available online after the event?

    This page says it's for "North American Registrants" only, yet the pre-requisite page over at hackster.io says it's for USA only.
    As a Canadian, I'm unclear on which it is.

    Secondly, I've been working with the Raspberry Pi since it first came out, but solely in the Debian / Linux / Python world. Is the coding platform behind this solely C, C#?

    @Shaun: I've pinged huckster.io on that. They have confirmed that it's North America (and not just the USA).
