Manchester Raspberry Jam IX (Girl Geeks visit Raspberry Jam)
Sunday, 17 February 2013 from 10:00 to 16:00
Manchester, United Kingdom
Come along and bring your Raspberry Pi to life! Share ideas and see talks and demos on what the people of the North West are doing with their £30 credit card sized computers...
This event is suitable for anyone – professional or novice, adult or child – you don’t need any prior knowledge or experience.
The format of the event is simply hacking on whatever you want – get together with someone and see what you can make the Pi do. Some people make games with Scratch, others spend time learning Python, some play with the GPIO pins and external hardware, others teach or help people get started. Apart from an introductory presentation by the organiser, there is very little schedule to the day. However we encourage people to speak up if they have something they want help with so that everyone gets something out of the day. All day long demos will be going on which amaze the group.
Whether you’re a beginner or an expert you’ll have a blast playing with this incredible single board computer.
What you’ll need:
- Bring a Pi if you have one, but it’s not essential everyone does
- Bring as many connectivity cables as you can, as well as mice/keyboards and usb hubs – these all come in handy!
- If convenient (i.e. you live close or drive) do bring a monitor so more many people can get on at once
We provide food and drink as this is an all day event – this is kindly provided by our sponsors. If you would like to help with sponsorship please donate through eventbrite or get in touch.

About Madlab (Manchester Digital Laboratory)
Calling all geeks, artists, designers, illustrators, hackers, innovators and idle dreamers; the Manchester Digital Laboratory is here for you!
It’s a space you can get together with like-minded individuals and work on your urban gardening, crochet, hacking, programming, media arts, filmmaking, animating project without worrying that you’re in a library, coffee shop, pub or other unsuitable venue. We know hackers and craftspeople need work space and may need to get down and dirty – we also know sometimes you need a quiet area to present and show works to your peers. We support both activities. And we hope there will be a rich mix of individuals who’ll get out of the usual zones, the knitter talking to the software architect, the cupcake maker scheming with the laser etching builder. We know some good will come of this.
