"INTRODUCE & INSPIRE"

Saturday 7th December

12.30pm-6pm

What is a Raspberry Jam?

Raspberry Jam is a rapidly growing global network of user groups that meet to support hobbyists, developers, teachers, students, children and families – in fact, anybody that would like to put their Raspberry Pi to good use.

This Event Registration is for the afternoon session. A separate event is being run for the programming workshops in the morning.

What's happening at this Jam?

This is the 4th Cambridge Jam (CamJam) of 2013. We are once again fortunate to be holding the Jam at the Institute of Astronomy off Madingley Road in Cambridge.

We're increasing the number of tickets again as the last Jam sold out!

The broad theme of the Jam is "Introduce and Inspire" and this time we're hoping to introduce people to what they can do with their Raspberry Pis and inspire people to take things further.

The current programme (subject to change) includes the following:

  • A fascinating keynote from "The Raspberry Pi Guy" about his Pi journey
  • A presentation on NOOBS from Gordon Hollingworth of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
  • An up-close look at what to do with your Pi when you first open the box, getting it up and running and using it for cool stuff.
  • A workshop with The Pi Hut on setting up wifi on your Pi.
  • A presentation on Sonic Pi with Carrie Anne Philbin of Geek Gurl Diaries
  • An open forum on future Jams
For the more advanced Pi owners, we hope to have the following:
  • A hands-on session with Ciseco's Wireless Inventors Kit which was such a hit at the last Jam.
  • Setting up a Wordpress blog on your Raspberry Pi and using RPiDNS to open it up to the outside world. (to be confirmed)
  • A hands-on session with PiBorg.
  • An introduction to the Pico Piduino - a do-it-yourself mini Arduino-compatible board that you can programme from your Pi.
And of course, we'll have the return of Show-and-Tell and the incredibly popular Marketplace featuring the following vendors:
What did people say about the last Jam?
  • "This one gets better all the time!"
  • "Very well-organised and run Jam."
  • "The venue was excellent."
  • "Had a great time, really enjoyed the presentations."
  • "I had a fun time."
