Manchester Raspberry Jam

Manchester Raspberry Jam

Title: Manchester Raspberry Jam 8
Location: Ground floor of MadLab
Description: The Raspberry Pi is a credit card sized computer with an ARM chip that runs Linux and you can buy one for about £30. It’s designed to bring the hype of BBC Basic back in to schools – you just plug one in to a TV or monitor, attach a keyboard and mouse, and start programming!
Date: 12-01-2013
Start Time: 10:00
End Time: 15:00
Register: This event has has passed. The upcoming event can be found here

 

Come along and bring your Raspberry Pi to life! Share ideas and see talks and demos on what the people of the North West are doing with their £30 credit card sized computers…

Talks and demos are welcomed and encouraged.

This event is suitable for anyone – professional or novice, adult or child – you don’t need any prior knowledge or experience.

The format of the event is simply hacking on whatever you want – get together with someone and see what you can make the Pi do. Some people make games with Scratch, others spend time learning Python, some play with the GPIO pins and external hardware, others teach or help people get started. Apart from an introductory presentation by the organiser, there is very little schedule to the day. However we encourage people to speak up if they have something they want help with so that everyone gets something out of the day. All day long demos will be going on which amaze the group.

Whether you’re a beginner or an expert you’ll have a blast playing with this incredible single board computer.

What you’ll need:

- Bring a Pi if you have one, but it’s not essential everyone does
- Bring as many connectivity cables as you can, as well as mice/keyboards and usb hubs – these all come in handy!
- If convenient (i.e. you live close or drive) do bring a monitor so more many people can get on at once
We provide food (in the form of pizza) and drink as this is an all day event – this is kindly provided by our sponsors. If you would like to help with sponsorship please get in touch

Sponsorship donations go towards food and all proceeds go to the MadLab’s running costs!

Special event! This month we’re teaming up with Manchester Game Jam for an optionally collaborative effort to make awesome games on the Pi. If you don’t fancy working on a game then feel free to hack away as usual.

The Raspberry PI meet again

Monday, July 16th, 2012

Joseph and I took delivery of our Raspberry Pi earlier this year, and today attended the Manchester Raspberry Jam held at Madlab, a group of Raspberry Pi enthusiasts getting together to share experiences of this micro computer that seems to have re-kindled the hacking passion of 30 years ago. I say 30 years ago because the last time I remember this sort of passion and interest was when I used to attend a local computer club, where members showed their latest hardware and software projects based on micros like the Acorn Atom and others of that era. Home-made cases, low-level programming and soldering were the norm, and are the norm again. (more…)
