Raspberry Jam is a growing network of user groups that meet regularly to support hobbyists, developers, teachers, students and families - in fact anybody that would like to put their Raspberry Pi to good use. This network is spreading with many locations around the World. While Raspberry Jam is not endorsed, sponsored or associated with Raspberry Pi or Raspberry Pi products or services, our members are helpful people who can help you with everything you need to get what you want from your Raspberry Pi. At each Raspberry Jam you can expect to meet interesting speakers with experience of Raspberry Pi to offer, as well as an opportunity for you to meet up with other Raspberry fans
The main point of this event is to allow time and place to network about the Raspberry Pi. You might have projects you want to discuss, ideas you've had, or simply want advice. In order to support and inspire you, the following will be taking place at the event:
