A few weeks ago we attended the 1st Cambridge Raspberry Jam, last week we went to the 2nd London Raspberry Jam evening, and it was great fun.
Once again Alan O’Donohoe, who came up with the idea for the Raspberry Jam events was on hand, and it was good to chat to him, as usual.
Eben Upton even made an appearance, although it was via a recording of an interview he has given. It was all very Max Headroom!
One of the items on display was the portable Raspberry Pi made by Sukkin Pang SK Pang Electronics. You can learn more about the portable Raspberry Pi from here.
Also on display was the Raspberry Pi powered BigTrak (which is very cool and now has a rocket launcher). I had a BigTrak as a kid and I loved it.
The evening consisted of a number of short presentations and a lot of interesting discussions. It took place at the London Mozilla Spaces venue and we were very well taken care of.
There were a lot of Pi’s on hand, more than I have seen in any one place before (i don’t count the 200 in a box I helped Liz sell in Cambridge).
All in all I had a great time, and I look forward to the next one!
If you haven’t been to a Raspberry Jam yet, you really should consider going.
