How to claim your Raspberry Pi and certificate

Here are the steps to claim your Raspberry Pi and certificate.

  1. Read a short article to learn what is Software Performance Engineering, and why Node.js / JS developers should care.
  2. Follow the examples in the Getting Started Guide to create a simple Rust function that runs inside a Node.js app.
  3. Fork the template project and change the Rust function to do something else of your choice. Here are some ideas.
    1. Math education web app
    2. Image recognition as a web service
    3. Machine learning and visualization
  4. Write a short summary of your app and post it on social media and the developer community.

You are almost done. The next thing is to let us know your awesome project.

  1. Enter your information in this Google Form to claim your Raspberry Pi kit.
  2. Depending on where you live, we might ship you a Raspberry Pi kit or ask you to purchase one from a local e-commerce site, which we will reimburse up to $25 USD.

When you got the Raspberry, you can then run the Node.js server and Rust functions on the Raspberry device!

In addition to the Raspberry Pi kit, you will receive a blockchain-based certificate that permanently showcases your achievement and open source project. It looks like this.
