The Milton Keynes Raspberry Jam will be taking a break over winter but will be back at The National Museum Of Computing
@tnmoc , Bletchley Park on 3rd March as part of the Raspberry Pi Big Birthday Weekend. More soon.
The Milton Keynes Raspberry Jam is back for it’s final meet of 2017. Heck, let’s call it the Christmas special. Once again we’re at The National Museum of Computing, home of the Pi’s great-great-great-grandma, Colossus. Free Tickets here.
It’s now just under two years since the release of the Jessie version of Raspbian. Those of you who know that Debian run their releases on a two-year cycle will therefore have been wondering when the next version might be released , codenamed Stretch. Well, wonder no longer – Raspbian Stretch is available for download now.
Well what a fun morning we had – hosted at The National Museum of Computing in Bletchley Park, the Raspberry Jam Milton Keynes is back in business.
Two rooms full of projects brought in by the attendees – RetroPie builds, robots, synths, a 3D printer, sensor projects and couple of MicroBit projects snuck in under the door 🙂
The meeting was well attended with most staying for the whole morning, picking each other’s brains or just being entertained by the array of projects – playing retro games, playing weird electronic instruments or duelling robots. There was also the bonus of cut price entry to the Museum for afters.
The Jam was hosted by PJ Evans from the Museum – backed up by his sidekick for the morning – yours truly. The rooms were kindly provided by the Museum which enabled the event to be free to all the attendees. We hope this can be the start of something much bigger and are hoping to have our next meet up in September (possibly the 16th). This time, we’ll probably separate the two rooms into show-and-tell and workshops, so we can get some people coding. Let us know if you are interested.
