Title: Manchester Raspberry Jam 2
Location: 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!

The format of the event will be in the style of an ‘unconference’ – with talks, demos, tutorials and workshops going on throughout the day – put on by willing participants – and everyone has the freedom to attend the sessions or simply plug in their Pi and have a play with it or group up with others and share ideas. We’ve received some sponsorship money from supporters (still looking for more – please get in touch!) so we can lay on some food for attendees

Come along to the MadLab for a day playing with your (or somebody else’s) brand new Raspberry Pi! We’ll start with a ‘Getting Started’ session for people to be shown how to get their Pi up and running by mounting a Linux OS on to an SD card and seeing things happen on a TV screen. Following that we’ll have a number of Barcamp-style talks and demos to explore what people are doing with their Pi and to inspire ideas for interesting applications.

What you’ll need

  • If you have a Raspberry Pi, do bring it with you, but it’s not essential as you will be able to watch demos and play with other people’s Pis
  • If you’re bringing a Pi, bring as much useful stuff as you can – USB keyboard, mouse, HDMI (or other) cable, SD card(s), power cable, network cable, etc
  • If you feel like giving a talk or demo, prepare something and we’d love to see what you have to show

The event will be free but donations to the MadLab will be gratefully accepted!
