Raspberry Jamboree 2017
Sat 27 May 2017, 09:00 – 17:00 BST
Raspberry Jamboree is a one-day event with two tracks of unconference talks and hands-on workshops. Tickets are free, and under 16's muct be accompanied by an adult.
What's a Raspberry Jamboree?
For one day we shall run two tracks of talks and one track of workshops. This style of event is called an “unconference” and it differs to the normal conference in that there are no speakers, we merely provide the facilities for the community to tell everyone about their project.
In every room we shall have equipment ready for you to deliver your talk, and for our workshops we shall have a suite of pi-topCEED units, kindly loaned to us by local pi-topCHAMPIONS.
Where is it?
Manchester Central Library, in the performace spaces on the ground floor. Just turn left after heading in the main entrance and you should spot us there! The spaces are equiped with A/V facilities and free wifi. It is fully accessible and located just seconds away from the St Peter's Square metro stop in Manchester City Centre.
Who will be speaking?
Apart from the opening and closing talks every other talk slot is filled by YOU! Yes, you! Tell everyone about your cool project, how you started hacking with the Raspberry Pi or crowd source ideas for new worksheets for your Jam/Code Club/School.
What if I want to deliver a workshop?
Applications to host a workshop can be completed here. The deadline for applications is the 30th April and we hope to confirm the successful applications by the 5th May. If you are applying to run a workshop, please also register for a ticket to attend the event.
What happens on the day?
We'll open the doors at 9am for registration, with the opening talk at 9:30am. The unconference and workshops will begin at 10am, with a break for lunch between 1 and 2pm, and then again until 4:30pm where we'll wrap things up before leaving the library by closing time at 5pm.
