As seen in the Huddersfield Daily Examiner... read here
I've got a Raspberry Pi :)
Then come along to the Huddersfield Raspberry Jam to share ideas and see what other people have been doing with the Pi.
The Jam is suitable for anyone...from a first timer to someone who knows computers inside and out.
But I've not got a Raspberry Pi :(
Well, come along anyway!
There will be a selection of Pi's fully set up that you can look at and have a go.
Or, if you have a laptop, you can install Scratch and learn how to make a simple game.
...But I've got an Arduino or Clone!
Bring it along and show it off
On the Day
Apart from a short introduction there is no formal schedule...everyone is free to what they wish.
Some make games with Scratch or learn Python whilst other others play with the GPIO ports and external hardware. Got a question or not quite sure about something then dont be shy, just ask on the day....others will be able to help you get started and show you the way.
What you'll need
- If you have one then bring a Raspberry Pi
- If your able to (ie, you live close or drive) then bring a monitor so that more can try the Pi
- If you bring a laptop, please make sure its fully charged as charging points will be limited
- Bring as much connectivity cables as you can, as well as mice/keyboard and usb hubs, power extensions etc...etc...
- If you want to go on the internet then you will need to bring your own dongle device
- A sense of fun and adventure
