After the onslaught that was the Raspberry Pi Big Birthday Weekend, myself and Tim Richardson are holding a much more relaxed, much smaller, Jam in our home town of Potton, Bedfordshire on Saturday, 11th April from 2-6pm. You can book free tickets here. Here’s some more information:
Potton Pi & Pints
We start around lunchtime and encourage people to bring along their projects to show and discuss or to come along and find out more about the Raspberry Pi and what it can do. We set-up some Pi workstations for general hacking, but you’re welcome to bring your own equipment along. This event is an ideal opportunity to get some one-on-one help with setting your Pi up or to get assistance with an ongoing project.
The event is being held in Potton (see Potton on Google Maps), a small town on the Bedfordshire/Cambridgeshire border, at The Rising Sun, a family-friendly, dog-friendly pub. The Rising Sun is a CAMRA-accredited local pub that regularly has 7 real ales, real cider and all the usual beverages. Food is available all day and is of the pub-grub variety: generously-portioned and reasonably priced. You can read more about The Rising Sun on their website.
We’ve arranged to use the upstairs function room (part of which is pictured below) which has tables and chairs and plenty of space for your projects or just for talking if that’s all you want to do.
This event will be a real social for Pi enthusiasts and we’re hoping it will be nice and relaxed. Kick back, unwind and do stuff with your Pi.
We’ll be supplying a few Raspberry Pis, monitors, keyboards, mice, cables and power sockets so all you have to do is come along. But please feel free to bring your own Pi, your SD card and whatever other electronic wizardry/gadgetry you happen to have.
We’ll have some of our worksheets available, including Minecraft Pi Edition, so there’ll be some activities for kids available.
At the end of the Jam (5-6pm-ish), we’ll be packing up and re-arranging the room so that those who want to can order food and eat/drink/talk to our hearts’ content.
