This event is a special Hour of Code Week event, hosted at the offices of the Raspberry Pi Foundation. We'll be running a series of 20 minute coding activities - and anyone can take part. Anyone who completes three or more activities gets an Hour of Code certificate. It's the perfect chance to get your first experience coding, no matter what your age!
Raspberry Jams are family-friendly events all about learning coding and digital making with Raspberry Pi computers. We'll be providing coding and digital making activities for children and adults to participate in, to have fun and learn with the Raspberry Pi computer. Jams are a great way to share ideas and meet like-minded people. This event is a great way to get started with coding and there'll be monthly events you can attend throughout 2017.
