This year marks the sixth anniversary of the launch of the Raspberry Pi. To celebrate, the Raspberry Pi Foundation is coordinating Raspberry Jam Big Birthday Weekends all around the world – and ElectroMaker is getting in on the act!
A Raspberry Jam is an event where anyone can get together and learn about developing projects with a Raspberry Pi. Over the years, such events have been the first public showing of some very interesting projects, and they typically feature workshops and talks. Whether you’re new to physical computing, or a veteran, if you love the Raspberry Pi and have something to share (or just want to learn) a Raspberry Jam event lets you meet people just like you in a friendly environment.
Taking place on March 3rd, 2018 from 11am until 2pm, our MeetyPi Club is opening its doors to celebrate the Raspberry Jam Big Birthday Weekend celebrations, and we’d love to see you there!
The event features a show and tell session (in which you can show off your projects, however big or small) and getting started tutorial sessions (creating random sparkles with the Sense HAT and controlling a traffic light sequence with the GPIO Zero API). We’re also featuring some on-the-spot lightning talks, by our in-house maker Simon.
If you want to share your projects in the show and tell, you can get in touch to let us know beforehand, and we’ll add you to the list. This might be a project you’ve worked on, something you’ve learned, or even an inspirational, Pi or technology-related story.
As if all that wasn’t enough, we’re providing drinks and light snacks for lunch, and holding a prize draw! Yes, you could be the lucky winner of some ElectroMaker swag … and even a Raspberry Pi Zero!
To be in with a chance, you should be within travelling distance of our offices at Electropages Ltd., 3 Winchester Place, Poole, Dorset (in the United Kingdom). This is a free, all-ticket event, which you can register for at our EventBrite page.
Please note, under 18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times, but be aware that it is likely to be unsuitable for younger children.
Regrettably, as the event takes place on the second floor of the building, there is no disabled access to the MeetyPi Club’s Raspberry Jam.
