I'm glad there is interest already showing up. The first raspberry jam in Eugene will be October 18th. It seems far away, but school starts late this year so I don't have access to the facilities before then. If there is enough interest I would like to make this a reoccurring event, at least monthly.
I am the president of the eBiz ("electronic" Business) club and we have weekly meetings. Our first projects will be involving the Pi. If you are interested in helping out, we would love to have you come to those meetings. Talk to me on Oct. 18th or send me a PM to find out more details on that.
Here is the eventbrite: http://eugeneraspberryjam.eventbrite.com/
Please register so we can get a headcount. Also, it is a FREE event, but donations would be greatly appreciated to help my club pay for our projects.
