As part of EU code week (http://codeweek.eu/) 16-23 October we are hosting our next Jam at Coventry Central library. If you came to the Minecraft Jam in August this event will be slightly different we will still have a number of Pi’s to create and code with Minecraft but there will also be cool Raspberry projects to come and explore. If you have never been to a Raspberry Jam then hopefully the this will help make it a bit clearer. J
So you might think a Raspberry Jam as possibly a bit of food that goes on toast - well there, my friend, you are wrong. This is a meet up for people who have the Raspberry Pi computer or want to learn more about the Raspberry Pi computer.
What is a Raspberry Jam?
A Raspberry Jam is a meet up when people who have an existing interest in Raspberry Pi’s or want to find out more get together and they all share ideas, help each other and most of all have fun! It is a growing community that welcomes families, developers, students, teachers - really anyone who wants to put their Pi to good use and show off their fancy projects! Or learn coding in fun and engaging ways through coding with Minecraft, making robots, home automation and IOT projects.
Do I need a ticket?
You don't need to bring a physical ticket with you but it would help tremendously if you could book online as we can then notify you of any changes.
Should I bring my Pi?
If you would like to that is great. But if you do not have one then we provide Pi’s to have a play with on the day. Usually 10-15 are available.
Bring a few projects if possible to show people. Also, if you’re struggling with a project someone could help you - after all, two heads are often better than one!
If you're excited about a particular project set it up in a corner and people are sure to come and have a look! you can take part in the show and tell element of the Raspberry Jam event where people can explore other peoples projects.
Show and tell projects
It would be great if you could come and show off your project. It could be about a project you have been working on, something that fascinates you or anything that's AWESOME! Just tell us at the beginning of the Jam!
