February 2013 – Manchester Raspberry Jam

Manchester Girl Geeks Event – Manchester Raspberry Jam
MadLab, Edge Street, Manchester
Sunday 17th February 2013, 10-4pm 

For February, we’ll be joining Manchester Raspberry Jam for one of their regular monthly meetings – details are below, and to book, visit mcrraspjam9.eventbrite.co.uk.

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.

Sponsorship donations go towards food and all proceeds go to the MadLab’s running costs!
