Potton Pi & Pints
a Raspberry Jam Doughnut
Fancy doing some Raspberry Pi stuff in a relaxed, social atmosphere? Fancy a chat with fellow geeky-type people? Fancy finding out about the Raspberry Pi from first principles? Then "Potton Pi & Pints" is for you.
This is a strictly informal event from the same team that brings you the Cambridge Raspberry Jam.
We start around lunchtime and encourage people to bring along their projects to show and discuss or to come along and find out more about the Raspberry Pi and what it can do. We set-up some Pi workstations for general hacking, but you're welcome to bring your own equipment along. This event is an ideal opportunity to get some one-on-one help with setting your Pi up or to get assistance with an ongoing project.
The event is being held in Potton, a small town on the Bedfordshire/Cambridgeshire border, at The Rising Sun, a family-friendly, dog-friendly pub. The Rising Sun is a CAMRA-accredited local pub that regularly has 7 real ales, real cider and all the usual beverages. Food is available all day and is of the pub-grub variety: generously-portioned and reasonably priced. You can read more about The Rising Sun on their website.
We've arranged to use the upstairs function room (part of which is pictured below) which has tables and chairs and plenty of space for your projects or just for talking if that's all you want to do.
This event will be a real social for Pi enthusiasts and we're hoping it will be nice and relaxed with none of the stress and frantic nature of the usual CamJam. Kick back, unwind and do stuff with your Pi.
We'll be supplying a few Raspberry Pis, monitors, keyboards, mice, cables and power sockets so all you have to do is come along. But please feel free to bring your own Pi, your SD card and whatever other electronic wizardry/gadgetry you happen to have.
We'll have some of our worksheets available, including Minecraft Pi Edition, so there'll be some activities for kids available.
At the end of the Jam (5-6pm-ish), we'll be packing up and re-arranging the room so that we can order food and eat/drink/talk to our hearts' content.
