It’s a huge privilege for us to see so many people come together at MadLab, learning new skills and finding whole new areas of interests through the many and varied groups that meet here. This certainly holds true in the case of Amy Mather, who stunned us all with her humanitarian ‘Wood Street Mission App‘ that earned her a special mention at last years’ Young Rewired State, a nationwide coding event where under-18s are encouraged to get together and produce apps and new software for the benefit of their community.
Since then she has gone on from strength to strength, getting more involved with the Raspberry Pi through the Raspberry Jam sessions held here at MadLab (the next meet up will be on 13th April if you feel inspired to have a go!) and presenting at conferences and events like the Manchester Girl Geek’s BarCamp (check out #bracamp on twitter for more information).
