Raspberry Jam at Bletchley Park?

Wed Jul 18, 2012 8:01 pm

Hi,

Is anyone in the Milton Keynes area interested in having a Jam session at the computer museum at Bletchley Park - The spiritual birthplace of the computer?

I'm pretty new to Linux, Pi, Arduino & Programming in general but if there is a group of like minded people nearby that are interested in meeting up, I don't mind pitching in and getting in touch with Bletchley....

I'd be interested. I wonder if they've got anything with an HDMI socket? :D

OK, I have been in touch with Bletchley and can confirm that work is already underway for a Jam at the computer museum. More details to follow.

That sounds fun!
I work at the Open University just up the road from Bletchley, and am organising something to tell colleagues there about the Raspberry and what it could do for our students. Linking this with a jam would be good...

So why don't you organize a Jam *there*?

(If I had Large Sums of Money...I'd love to go to a Jam at Bletchley Park...if only to take a picture of a Pi next to a working Bombe...)

California...but there are (regretably) financial considerations stacked up well ahead of attending a Jam in the UK...fun as it would be to do so.

Why not setup your own Jam - it will be a blast!

You can see a lot of our Bristol Jam here -

but this was a big Jam, we also have much smaller ones too.
