They say to get advice you should ask an expert. Well, when it comes to crowdfunding Raspberry Pi projects, Alex Eames of RasPi.TV is about as close to an expert as you can get with four campaigns under his belt. At the Big Birthday Weekend, Alex gave a talk on the pros and cons of crowdfunding and told of his experiences using the Kickstarter platform. You can see a video of his talk, with slides, below or you can read a text version of it on his site. It’s fascinating stuff and well worth a listen/read if you’re planning on crowdfunding your own project.
