Durham #RaspberryJam

Mon Aug 27, 2012 2:59 pm

Hi. I we have upgraded Durham Raspberry Jam from the original Starbucks venue to Durham Johnston School, to accommodate much more people and allow for more show & tell. The first event is listed here http://durhamjam.eventbrite.com/

As one of the main aims of the Raspberry Pi Foundation is to support children's interest in computing, I welcome the use of a school as a host venue. Please support this event.

If you can provide trasnport, technical support, would like to speak or can blog, photograph, or video talks that would be very welcome. I can offer www.raspberryjam.org.uk/durham wordpress blog to someone who would like to help spread our jam.

Durham Raspberry Jam was a great success. A big thank you to Mark of Durham Johnston School for providing a room for us to meet as well as helping organising things.

On the night we had a 30+ attend and a number of show and tells.

We hope to have a second Durham Jam in October and follow that with a Raspberry Jam in Newcastle in November.

I agree, Durham Jam was a great success! I didn't expect such a large turnout for the first meeting. Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures or videos. I will try to grab some next time. It is really handy to have such a suitable location. Hopefully, we will have some more interesting speakers and projects to talk about next time. Looking forward to it :)

It was more quantity I was meaning, over quality. Your talk was quite interesting. I'm working on a quadrocopter. A servo shield would be quite handy :)

Haven't started it yet :P still waiting on the parts. Just thinking of the possibilities of using a RasPi controller
