Cotswold Jam is running again on Saturday 18 May 1-4pm in Cheltenham. There’s two floors of hands-on robots, retro gaming, show & tell projects and tutorials, including Minecraft coding.
One of their more unusual workshops this time is a session on Raspberry Pi Updates and Backups. You may have done many programming tutorials and created beautiful Minecraft worlds, but if your SD card got corrupted, would you lose all your work? Do you know how to keep your software up-to-date with new features and security fixes? This session teaches you how to update your software, and how to back-up your files to a USB memory key.
As usual, all equipment is provided, you don’t need to bring anything, and tickets are free from: http://www.cotswoldjam.org
Cheltenham is easy to get to from Birmingham, Bristol or Oxford, and there’s free parking at the excellent University of Gloucestershire site, which is also only a 10 minute walk from Cheltenham railway station.
